Urbana DE Colton Kmetz picks Kent State, while two Thomas Johnson players make their college choices

Urbana defensive end Colton Kmetz, a second-team All-Met, has accepted a scholarship offer to play for Kent State.

“The coaches were fantastic and he will be getting immediate playing time which is very important to him,” his father, John, wrote in an email.

Kmetz also had a scholarship offer from Pittsburgh and was being recruited by Marshall, East Carolina, James Madison, North Carolina State and Syracuse.

Kmetz, who is 6 feet 5 and 220 pounds, had 14 sacks and blocked several kicks this past season for the Hawks, who finished 6-4.

Two other Frederick County players have also made commitments, according to the Frederick News-Post. Thomas Johnson wide receiver Nate Hairston committed to Temple, while defensive back De’Andre Scott, who played for Thomas Johnson before spending this past season at Hargrave Military Academy, committed to Akron.
