"Michigan, Florida State, Michigan State, Purdue, Minnesota, Auburn, Kentucky, Louisville are the schools recruiting me the most," Combs said. "I'm going to wait until February and then I'm going to decide where I'm going to go to."
Combs appears one of Steve Kragthorpe's top in-state recruiting targets. The Cardinals have been recruiting the 6'3, 250-pound Combs since his sophomore season and appear to be in good shape with the talented Lexington standout. Where exactly do the Cardinals stand with Combs?
"At the top, they're of my leaders," said Combs. "I have a whole lot of contact with Louisville and Coach Nord. I like their program and what their coach said. He said he plays all freshmen. I like Coach Nord and Coach Kragthorpe."
Combs has made unofficial visits to both Louisville and Kentucky and said he was unsure whether or not he'd make official visits to either of the two in-state programs. "I'll probably go to Michigan when they play Ohio State and take a trip to Michigan State," Combs said.
Combs, who ran a 4.5 at the Nike Camp last summer, is a versatile prospect who could project to a number of different positions in college. In high school, he's played on both sides of the ball, including running back, wide receiver, linebacker, safety and punter.
"I'm looking for a program where they allow freshmen to play," Combs said. "Position doesn't matter."
