As we turn the page to the class of 2017, defensive end Joshua Kaindoh has already cemented himself as one of the best high school players in "SEC country."

Prepping at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., Kaindoh has accrued offers from virtually every big program in the country. He’s regarded as the No. 2 player in the country by Rivals.com — and for good reason. 

Kaindoh has exceptional length from the defensive end spot. Possessing the quickness to burst around the edge, he’s proven to be incredibly difficult to stop — especially in obvious passing situations. 

Kaindoh’s height helps him bat down passes at the line of scrimmage with ease. Couple that with his motor, and there’s good reason as to why he’s drawn comparisons to current LSU defensive end Arden Key. 

Although Kaindoh plays his football in the South, he originally hails from the greater Washington D.C. area. As such, it’s no surprise that he currently favors programs in the Northeast — including the likes of Maryland, Penn State, and Ohio State.

A prevailing thought is that he will indeed head back up North for his college football. However, he is currently nestled in an SEC-centric area. Programs such as Georgia, LSU, Alabama, and Florida will also undoubtedly pursue him incredibly hard. 

It will be fascinating to see ultimately where Kaindoh ends up.
