Getting to know Darrin Kitchens

Though he led south Florida with 19 sacks as a senior, Homestead (Fla.) linebacker Darrin Kitchens flew a bit under the radar. He didn't appear on any of the instate program's recruiting board until late in the process.

Kitchens officially visited Gainesville on January 15, the last big recruiting weekend of the 2010 recruiting cycle and then took visits to two Big 12 programs after that. However, a last minute visit from UF linebacker coach D.J. Durkin before Kitchens left on his visit to Texas Tech, helped seal the deal for the Gators.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder returned from Lubbock (Tx.) with the Gators on top and signed his Letter of Intent a couple of days later.
