Kyle Kearns had long been planning a trip to SMU after it had offered and since he was in the region the four-star quarterback decided to take two other unofficial visits as well.
The Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill quarterback who looked good at the recent RCS Northern California also saw Oklahoma State and Oklahoma and said both programs definitely impressed him.
The Cowboys seem closer to offering and Kearns said while Stillwater is different than home, he is interested because of how that offense runs.
"It was their big recruiting day (at Oklahoma State) so they had their spring practice for the fans," Kearns said. "With me they were laying out the process they're going to take and they want to watch me throw and watch me work out in spring ball. They want to take it step-by-step.
"They have some offers out and they're waiting on some commitments so they're going to start putting a little pressure on those guys. I'm the next guy in line for an offer."
Oklahoma State is a lot different setting than Northern California but Kearns said he will definitely remain open to that program. It would be a huge offer for the four-star who's rated as the ninth-best pro-style quarterback in the 2015 class by Rivals.com.
"It's quite a dramatic change from Silicon Valley and California," Kearns said. "It would be something I'd have to get used to but it has some incredible facilities and their support system is great."
During his time in the state, the Pleasanton Foothill standout also saw Oklahoma. It's preliminary with the Sooners but seeing the place piqued Kearns' interest.
"They had a clinic for the coaches and I wanted to drop in and check it out while I was here in Oklahoma," Kearns said. "They've been a very historical program and they've had a lot of great teams. I wanted to go by and check the place out.
"They take the process with quarterbacks very slowly. It was good to see them."
It was also good to see SMU, the lone offer for Kearns at this point. He had some great talks with coach June Jones, sees himself thriving in the offense and raved about how the quarterbacks are utilized there.
"It was incredible," Kearns said. "I got to spend the whole day with them and they start practice early in the morning and get it out of the way. It was great to watch how they work. Being able to see the facilities and what they have there, Dallas is incredible.
"You can tell the whole aura of the school just wreaks of prestige and it's just a great program. I got to meet with coach Jones and it's a great program. Football-wise I can see myself fitting in their system really well. It's a quarterback's offense and it revolves around the quarterback a ton and they put a lot in the quarterback's hands and they give him a lot of responsibility."
