Having already received verbal offers from the University of Toledo, Boston College, University of Massachusetts, and University of Rhode Island, Class of 2017 Kwity Paye is a strong contender coming out of Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick, Rhode Island.
A dedicated athlete, Paye is a successful sprinter and long jumper on both the indoor and outdoor track and field teams, in addition to his impressive showing as a defensive lineman and running back on the football team. He frequently reaches the podium in the 100 and 200 meter dash, attaining personal bests of 10.9 seconds and 22.3 seconds, respectively. He takes advantage of the off season by engaging in footwork drills to improve upon his speed and agility, as well as increasing his strength through a demanding weightlifting program. Not only does Paye maintain his fitness level during the off season, he keeps up with his football skills.
He was given the opportunity to attend both the Nike Opening Regional Camp and the Under Armour Rivals Camp in 2015. This year, he was also pleased to have been invited to attend both the University of Massachusetts and Syracuse University Junior Days.
With a deep desire to earn a quality education, Paye maintains a 2.7 GPA, with plans to take both the SAT and the ACT in June 2016. Having already visited Boston University, he looks forward to visiting more programs offering a wide range of degrees which he can utilize to mold himself a successful post-football career.
Standing 6’3” tall, and weighing 225 pounds, Kwity Paye runs a 4.6 40 yard dash. He loves to play outside linebacker, and has also been known to play running back and pass rusher. He is presently being recruited as a defensive lineman, as well. With a strong desire to better himself as both a student and an athlete, Paye looks forward to hearing from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan, along with the other quality programs he has been in contact with.
