4 star DB and New Orleans native Chester Kimbrough commits to Florida.
Florida is slowly but surely starting to roll in commits from their FNL visitors last month. Kimbrough has routinely been on record for saying Florida is his number one school for some time now. The staff has been high on Chester during his entire recruitment consistently making him a priority. With Kimbrough committing it makes two commits in the last few weeks for Florida.
On the field: Chester Kimbrough is currently listed at 5-11 and 168 pounds and is the 34th National ranked DB (on 247sports)in the nation. After watching the film, and getting a good glimpse of him at FNL during drills he flashes some great techniques as a corner. Kimbrough showcases great footwork, great makeup speed, and great awareness for always looking for the ball when it’s in the air.
Overall feel: With Kimbrough committing is a good pickup, he doesn’t “WOW” you with big plays he’s just an overall sound corner. The true question is where does he fit? I don’t believe he’s a true outside corner, he’s best suited for a nickel position giving his height. However, if he moves outside it wouldn’t surprise me. Florida is also thin at depth for DB, and with Chauncey possibly leaving for the draft next year, Chester could be looking at some early playing time next season.
