Mickey Plyler on Kitt: "Clemson needed receivers in this class and Kitt fit the bill of what they were looking for. He is a polished route runner with good hands. Kitt is not a burner but he is very productive. He had good summer camps and combines and had offers from schools like FSU, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Alabama and Auburn. Since he enrolled early, I would expect him to have a good chance to avoid a red-shirt season."
Reminds Plyler of: Terry Smith
