Penn State 2013 Recruiting: LB Micah Kiser



Micah is a pure linebacker. He’s a bit light at 210-215 lbs, but he carries it well on his 6’1″ frame. I hate doing this because it’s an unfair comparison, but his film reminds me of Ray Lewis. That doesn’t mean that he is going to be one of the greatest linebackers ever, it just means that he flies from his middle linebacker position to the ball on every play and when he gets there, he looks to punish. Once he makes contact, drives through the ball carrier and rarely gives up ground. He even looks good in pass coverage! There are also a few highlights of him at tight end that showcase his straigh-line speed.
If you are the type of person who is usually on the fence about watching the highlights, I’d urge you to take a minute and watch this one.
If he plays early in college, it will likely be at OLB but if he can add some weight, his quickness at middle linebacker would be a real asset in a few years.
Some of Micah’s offers include Stanford, Florida, Maryland and he is apparently also an excellent Lacrosse player for Gilman in MD.
