As a Recruit
Kelvin Banks is named after his father, Kelvin Banks Sr. When he’s not playing football Banks loves to go fishing with his father and grandfather. “We do saltwater fishing, so we catch drums and reds,” Banks told VYPE. Banks also lists playing video games, like Madden and Call of Duty, and watching UFC as his other hobbies. Banks plans on majoring in education. His mother is Monica Banks, and his brother is Jaylon. Banks earned first-team all-district honors as a sophomore and junior.
Reminds Us Of
Kelvin Banks has similar stature, length and flexibility to what we saw from Laremy Tunsil, a Five-Star Plus+ prospect in the 2013 cycle. Both Banks and Tunsil are around 6-foot-5 and check-in with arms over 34 inches. Banks is a little heavier (315) than Tunsil (295) at the same stage. Both are flexible, light-footed movers with outstanding bend. Tunsil was a dominant high school offensive tackle with his ability to move and finish at the second level. We saw some similar flashes from Banks as a senior.
