Being at James Madison University for two years allowed Texas State head coach Everett Withers and several of his staff members to take a good look at the talent available in Virginia. They have recruited a number of players from there, including Texas State class of 2016 signee, Kumonde Hines.

One of the first 2017 offers handed out by Texas State was to a Virginia native, P.K. Kier, runningback out of Milbrook high school in Winchester, Virginia.

“It was actually through Twitter, through my DM’s,” said Kier on his offer from Texas State. “I was talking to coach Withers, he was at JMU before he went to Texas State and he had given me an offer from JMU. I just loved the way he did things. When he moved to Texas State, we stayed in contact and then I got the offer from Texas State.”

A 3-star recruit on most recruiting sites, Kier has three other offers from James Madison University, Old Dominion University and fellow Sun Belt Conference member Appalachian State. Despite two of his four offers coming from his home state, Kier said staying in Virginia isn’t that important to him, “I won’t be a concern for me at all. I wasn’t even planning on going to school in state. I just want to go the college that best fits for me… I am considering them (Texas State). I just love how Withers did things at JMU and how everything was ran there. A few of the coaches that went down there with him, I know as well. I’ve been talking with them too. I’m just hoping to get down there and see everything.”

His junior year at Milbrook, Kier gained 1,352 yards on 156 carries (8.6 yards per carry) and scored 19 total touchdowns. He was named first team in District 21 West (VA), first team All Region and second team All State at runningback.

At 5’11”, 208-lbs, Kier is a downhill runner, punishing defenders that get in his way with vicious stiff arms or just by barreling right through them. He’s not just a bruiser though; he has the speed (reportedly runs a 4.48 40) to finish his runs. A great example of this is the 2:20 mark on his Hudl video. Kier rips off a 73-yard touchdown, beating just about everyone on defense in a foot race. At one point, four defenders are in range of Kier before he turns on the jets, leaving them in the dust. He also appears to have great vision, as he follows his blockers well and finds the right hole.

Kier said he plans on visiting Texas State, “whenever my parents will let me.” He said he has discussed it with his parents and he should be coming down to San Marcos in the next couple months, around the time spring practice begins.
