Kevin made varsity; he was 5 foot 7 inches; he became the face of the team, averaging a double-double scoring 25 points and 11 assists. He started to receive offers from D1 schools such as West Virginia University, Kentucky University, Rutgers University, and Oklahoma Sooners University. Kevin is 6’1, weighs 130 pounds, and was a 5-star recruit point guard who attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
