Coming out of one of the Nations top Linebacer pipelines, DJ Kier has grabbed the attention of many college coaches and recruiting analysts. Matching his 265 pound bench press, 600 pound squat, 280 powerclean and 4.76 speed can be hard to match for this 6'0 210 pound Sophmore.
Coming out of Camas High School in Washington, Kier was the only sophomre to start for the Papermakers, making a huge contribution leading the team in tackles and helping his team climb to a top ten finish in state.
Kier was named to the GSHL 2nd Team All-League team as a linebacker.
"I'm happy with my selection at the all league slot, however, I missed 3 games that season which hammered my stats. I feel confident that I can make a good run at being an All-State linebacker next year," Kier told CI.
Kier recorded 87 tackles during his first year playing high-school ball as a varsity starter.
Head football coach Bob Holman told CI, "DJ shows a lot of potential, and I feel he can definately be an all state linebacker, and possibly more his senior year."
Kier has listed early favorites in order he lists, Washington and BYU (tie), Washington State, Oregon, USC, Tennessee, Notre Dame, New Mexico and Wyoming.
Kier says his decision will be based solely on his roll in the defensive scheme, and early commit does not seem likely for this Washington prospect.
