Do you guys have any ini on this guy? Seems pretty odd.
Who cares? I'm sure there is a good reason.
Yes, noted in this thread linked below a couple days back that he wasn't on site -- but never heard back from Kinlaw directly on why he decided not to go.
He got hurt the last time he was in this type of setting (Team USA), so he may just be looking ahead -- wide receiver James Onwualu decided to turn down an Army Bowl invite and just look towards his early enrollment.

Cool thanks Jason. Understood what you said but turning down an invite and flat out not showing up are two different things. Any reason for concern here?
Considering it's not a college-related event, I wouldn't think so. And the first time I heard his name associated with the game was when Jamie Oakes released the primer. Doug Randolph and Devin Butler had been the ones talking about seeing each other out there on Twitter.
Kinlaw has remained "solid" the whole time and his trip back to campus for the football awards show on an official visit only helped that.
Sweet, thanks Jason. We need all the CB's we can get. While we're on the topic of CB if Max Redfield announces he's Irish, do you think LJ Moore is out? Just think it's pretty interesting he's still listing us in his top 3.
IHATE USC does so why would you bother to post who cares??

I care. If you aren't going to play - give notice so they have time to can get a proper replacement. To not show lets down teammates and coaches who have made plans assuming you would be there.
It's not an awesome trait to simply not show up. I hope it is a legitimate excuse, this speaks to how he views obligations and commitment.
