Kearns impresses coaches

Kyle Kearns had a good week.
Coaches from Georgia, Michigan, Oregon and some other schools stopped by Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill last week to see the 2015 quarterback throw and all of them came away impressed.
Georgia assistant coach Mike Bobo and Kearns have had the longest relationship and Bobo told him he's going to show the film to coach Mark Richt soon. An offer could be close.
It's the same story with Michigan since the Wolverines have started to get seriously involved in Kearns' early recruitment.
"It went really well," Kearns said. "Both colleges said they really liked how I was throwing. I was talking to coach Bobo after it and he was saying he liked how the ball jumped out of my hand and he was filming it for coach Richt to see. He's not going to be the one to offer, that coach Richt makes all the quarterback offers and he wanted to see some film on me as well.
"He said to call either on Monday or Tuesday, most likely Tuesday, just to see if coach Richt liked the film and we'll go from there. Michigan told me to call them next week, too, and he's going to show coach (Al) Borges the film he took as well."
Oregon offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Scott Frost was at Pleasanton Foothill on Friday and Kearns threw a handful of passes before Frost put at early stop to it - in a good way.
"Oregon came by on Friday as well as San Jose State," Kearns said. "It was coach Frost and I threw about seven balls and he cut it off and said, 'That's good enough, he's got a gun, he answered all the questions.' He wanted to come see me throw for a little bit and there's no question he likes my arm."
Kearns, who threw for about 2,500 yards with 26 touchdowns in his sophomore season, is planning a trip to Texas in the next week or so. Assistant coach Major Applewhite recently visited Kearns' school so he wants to head to Austin to see if it would be a good fit.
"I'm going down there on June 2," Kearns said. "I'm going to hang out with the coaches down there at Texas and meet with coach (Mack) Brown and see what it's like down there."
There is a lot of interest but no offers yet. That does not bother Kearns, though, since it's so early and so many top-flight programs have reached out already.
"Quarterback is one of those things where I'm after the schools where I think I'd fit well in," Kearns said.
"I'm not chasing after a bunch of offers. It's basically building relationships with the guys at the schools where I'd fit in well. If I fit in well there, they like me and I like them then that's a good fit and we'll work from there."
