One of the more physical offensive linemen in the state of Ohio for the class of 2019 is Youngstown Cardinal Mooney three-star guard Kyle Jornigan, and college coaches are aware of his talents.

Jornigan, 6-foot-4, 320-pounds, holds over ten offers at this time, and he is hopeful that a Big Ten Power could be close to joining that offer list.

"I have been talking to Penn State a lot and that's an offer I really want," Jornigan stated. "I think they might be getting closer to offering, and I'm going to wait on them a little longer to give me a definite answer."

"I was there for a practice earlier, and I was also at their camp a few weeks ago to work out," he added. "I did well at their camp and they said I really helped myself. They said I could be offered by them, but certain things would have to happen first."

"This is definitely an offer that I want to wait for a little bit longer, and if not I do have plenty of other great options," he continued.

Of the schools that have offered Jornigan, there are three programs standing out above the others, and he has visited all three of his favorite schools.

"I really like Kentucky, Purdue and Ohio University the most of the schools that have offered me," he admitted. "I took an unofficial visit to Purdue recently, and that was really great."

"The facilities were surprisingly nice, and they are brand new," he explained. "They are telling me they have a spot for me and they are not really pushing me a whole lot. I liked the overall atmosphere a lot, and they have a great academic reputation. I have a good relationship with Coach (Dale) Williams, and we speak often."

Kentucky was the first Power Five school to offer Jornigan, and there are several coaches on their staff from Cardinal Mooney High School, including head coach Mark Stoops.

"I haven't visited Kentucky in a while, but I'm still considering them highly," Jornigan exclaimed. "Their staff is obviously very close to my high school, and that makes me very comfortable with them."

"I've stayed in contact with them, and they are showing a lot of interest in me," he said. I also like Ohio University a lot, and they are highly interested in me. I've developed nice relationships with the staff, and want to visit there again."

"I originally wanted to do it right before my season, but I want to wait a little longer because of Penn State," he admitted. "If that doesn't work out, I'm guessing I would commit sometime during the season."

Jornigan is ranked as the No. 28 offensive guard in the country for the class of 2019 by the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.
