Kolney Cassel is way ahead in the recruiting game since he's already hearing from a lot of major programs, has taken numerous unofficial visits and that all helps especially after having such an impressive junior season.
The 2013 pro-style quarterback from Yakima (Wash.) Eisenhower prospect had 2,697 passing yards with 27 touchdowns and six interceptions this past season. Those kinds of numbers have caught the eye of many college coaches across the country.
"I feel like as soon as someone offers I'll probably get some looks from some other schools," Cassel said.

"I have some good receivers and a good line. Everybody did well and everybody did what they needed to do."
Cassel, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect, said he has already taken visits to Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Arizona State, Boise State, Oregon State, Washington and Southern Cal.
He said Oregon State, Arizona State and Alabama particularly stand out early on but so many programs are showing interest that it's still way too early to tell which programs are the frontrunners.
Cassel said going to camps this summer - he's already been invited to Alabama, Oregon State, Stanford, Arkansas and UCLA so far - will give him a better gauge on which colleges he likes best.
"I like going to their camps to see which ones I like the most," Cassel said.
"I'm pretty happy with how things are going so far. All the schools have been talking to my coach."
Yakima Eisenhower finished 8-2 this season. Cassel's team scored 416 points and scored more than 50 points three times.
