Gimme speed to burn and a wooo wooooooooo.



Per BWI, Alex Kenney has finally pulled the trigger and chosen Penn State:

The speedy rising senior, who posted a district record 10.64-second 100-meter dash this spring and took home a state silver medal at states, continues the Nittany Lions' infusion of top-flight speed into the program. He also picked up a fourth-place finish in the 200-meter dash at states this spring.

Kenney was an all-state selection as a sophomore and junior, and caught 16 passes for 240 yards, and ran for 670 yards. He played wing back for the Little Lions, who finished the season 12-1.

 

Here's what you've won:

Kenney is a skilled athlete blessed with great speed and the ability to win footraces in the open field. He is a hybrid slot receiver/running back that is capable of turning a simple toss into an 80-yard highlight. He has multi-purpose back size and must continue to get bigger. He is a smooth glider that runs very softly. He weaves and jump cuts with fluid movements. He's a slashing player with quickness. Shows good initial burst when he hits the hole. He is not really much of a dancer, but rather a no-nonsense runner who can cut on a dime and has a great first step. He has great change-of-direction abilities, excellent vision and does a tremendous job of making tacklers miss. He very smoothly weaves his way through traffic as opposed to sharp quickness. He is so smooth and at times doesn't look as if he's moving all that fast, until he gets into the open field and then it's off to the races. He is definitely one of the faster scat players in this class. He has very good hands and ball skills and appears just as comfortable in the passing game as he does running the football. His quickness as a route-runner creates real separation and he can accelerate to track the ball. Has quick hands and tucks fast. He lacks great bulk and strength at this stage, but he is tough to get your hands on. Also shows great potential as a return specialist.
