2021 forward Lynn Kidd has blown up over the last few months.

The 6’9″, 220-pounder has ideal size and length that colleges covet. He’s able to shoot from the mid-range well and his outside shot has good form. Kidd isn’t afraid to slash to the rim either.

The Rock forward has offers from Xavier, Iowa State, Ole Miss, UF, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Stetson and USF. Kidd says UF, USF and Ole Miss are in contact with him the most.

He was part of a group that won the SIAA State Title over Victory Rock in March. Kidd talked about his freshman campaign.

“My first year went really well. I got to play against a lot of good players throughout the season. I felt like it was a brotherhood and we played for each other and everyone played their role,” Kidd told Prep Hoops. “I saw a lot of improvements in my game towards the middle of the season because I was learning my role and I was getting better from playing against good players on a regular basis.”

2019 FSU commit Zimife Nwokeji and 2020 guard Alec Oglesby joined Kidd this season alongside 2019 guards Bryan Greenlee, Trey McCray and Jaden Campbell. 2019 forward Dardan Kapiti and 2021 forward Amare McGriff also give The Rock more added size.

“This year I’m most excited about all the new guys we got on the roster I feel like we have a chance to be really good this year,” Kidd said.

This summer, Kidd played the first half with Nike Team Florida before ending it with the Georgia Stars.

“My time with the Stars was really good, we had an extremely talented team and I definitely enjoyed my time with them,” he said.

Kidd alluded to his post scoring and jump shot as his biggest strengths. He wants to get stronger and increase his athleticism further.

The sky is the limit for the sophomore. Kidd showed flashes as a jump shooter as a freshman and mixed it up defensively as a shot blocker. He improved his all-around game this summer and it was noticeable. With confidence and progression on his side, expect Kidd to flourish in a big way this season.
