Independence athlete Kylan Stribling committed to play football at MTSU on Saturday.

Independence’s Kylan Stribling announced Saturday that he has committed to play football at Middle Tennessee State.

“Every single recruit will tell you that when you pick a school it just feels right,” said Stribling, a three-star prospect and the No. 48-ranked player in the state per 247Sports. “MTSU just felt right; it felt like home.”

He primarily played defensive back in high school but was recruited as an athlete.

Stribling, a rising senior and the younger brother of Missouri defensive back Finis Stribling IV, registered 60 tackles (43 solo), two interceptions, six pass deflections and a fumble recovery in 2014, helping lead the Eagles to a 6-5 record and a Class 6A playoff appearance.

“He’s a terrific player for us,” Independence coach Scott Blade said. “He’s big, fast and physical, and he’s got the intangibles which have helped him become a great player. He’s going to do well for them.”

Stribling is the second Independence player to commit to a Division I school this summer, joining three-star wide receiver Nate Johnson, who pledged to Purdue last month.
