Kibble set to enroll at KSU in March
"It was the central program in the state and they always have great players here that get scholarships," Kibble told JCFootball.com Friday morning. "I wanted to keep playing ball and this was still close enough to home so that my family could see me play and I knew the coaches here would get me ready to play ball at the next level."
This past season, Kibble played mainly nose tackle for the Bulldogs and totaled 29 tackles and three sacks.
"I played the three (technique) and the nose, but I was mainly over the nose," Kibble said. "I'm more of a run-stopper and I don't get moved off the line so that helps my teammates make plays."
Kibble has outstanding size to go along with quick feet and great athleticism allowing him to post a 5.0 forty time. He also is a beast in the weight room, putting up 385 pounds on the bench while also squatting 500 pounds.
This year, schools from across the country flocked to Navarro to get a look at the plethora of talented players on the Bulldog roster and Kibble received his share of attention, pulling in offers from Baylor, Arizona, Houston and Louisiana Tech, but he decided to commit to stick with the school he decided to commit to early in the process.
"Kansas State offered me early and I tripped out to visit them when they played Tennessee Tech," Kibble said. "It was a real good visit. I got to meet the coaches, see the campus, hang out with the players and I really just think the direction of the program is where I want to go too so it was a good fit."
Kibble already has his AA degree and said he plans to enroll in March. He'll have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
