Kyle Kearns performed well at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles and he was outstanding at the Passing Down Best of the West in recent weeks and now his recruitment has taken off.
The 2015 quarterback from Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill is now hearing from Georgia, UCLA continues to show interest and Stanford and Northwestern are getting more involved.
Kearns communicated with Georgia offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo recently and he's expected to visit Foothill later this month.
"He's going to make it out to Foothill on May 23," Kearns said. "(Noel) Mazzone from UCLA is going to be right around there, too.
"Coach Bobo wants me to come out to their summer camp and he wants to show mutual interest so he wants to fly out to California. If I'm going to make the flight out to Georgia there is some serious interest behind it and a reason to do it.
"He said I was offer worthy off my film but he doesn't offer quarterbacks just off film. They need to throw in front of him and see what they think of them in person."
UCLA has been one of the programs that has shown a lot of interest early in Kearns, who threw for about 2,500 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his sophomore season.
Stanford and Northwestern both visited Pleasanton Foothill in the last couple weeks and Kearns said Cal, Texas A&M, Utah, Washington and others have also been in the mix.
After a strong spring for Kearns, his recruitment could get much busier heading into his junior season.
"It's picked up fast where a lot of these big-time colleges are interested," Kearns said.
"You dream about these colleges coming after you when you're growing up and hope they show interest in you and play at the biggest level there is. That's something I've always wanted to do. It's becoming more of a reality and it's really special."
