Luzzi on Kranz: "Kenny will be coming to us this fall as a transfer from Parkland College in Champaign, IL, where he was an All-Region award winner. Kenny also impressed us at our recent Prospect Camp with his energy, vision, and technical ability, and we knew that he is a guy that we wanted in our program. He will come in with two years of college under his belt, which will ease his transition to NIU. Kenny will be a great fit within our team, and I could see him challenging for time as an outside back or in the midfield."
