Pahokee’s Latarie Kinsler decommits from Louisville


One of the best defensive prospects in Palm Beach County has decommitted from Louisville.

Pahokee junior defensive end Latarie Kinsler announced on social media Monday that he is reopening his recruitment, noting that the Cardinals are still in consideration for his final decision.

“Me and my family just sat down and had a long talk and we felt as if it was the best decision for me as of now,” said Kinsler, who added that he has no plans to commit anywhere else right now.

Kinsler opened recruiter’s eyes with an impressive freshman season in which he registered 23 sacks in a bench role, and he continued to show elite pass rushing ability as a sophomore, tallying 60 tackles, 12 sacks and two forced fumbles.

The four-star recruit has 16 college offers, including offers from Oregon, Florida, Clemson, Virginia and Miami.

Kinsler expressed a desire to play college football alongside his brother, and fellow Pahokee Blue Devil, Ja’tarie Washington.

A Super 11 selection, Washington is a sought-after recruit in his own right with several college offers on the table following a junior season when he rushed for 1,602 yards and 20 touchdowns last year for Pahokee. Now a senior, Washington has been nursing a leg injury that has kept his out of action.

Kinsler and Washington currently have mutual offers from Pittsburgh and Syracuse.
