Kyle Kearns has talked a lot with Tennessee, he gets mail from the Volunteers every day and things are looking good between the two sides.
The 2015 quarterback from Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill has led his team to a 5-0 start this season and he said his conversations with the Tennessee coaching staff are going well. Kearns has already talked with head coach Butch Jones and it seems to be picking up.
"I've been talking with coach (Mike) Bajakian for four or five weeks," Kearns said. "I've called him every Thursday morning and I'm starting to learn about their program. He's sending me mail every day. I think I've gotten every day in the mail it has been at least 15 letters from those guys.
"I got to talk with coach Jones a couple times. Talking to him and he's talking about the relationship between the quarterback and the head coach needs to be the strongest. You can tell it's a family atmosphere there."
Kearns, who looked good on the 7on7 circuit this off-season, was also supposed to talk with Michigan in the last few days but that phone call never happened. The 2015 quarterback is supposed to re-schedule that talk as the Wolverines get more interested.
Many others including Texas, Georgia, Oregon and many others have reached out and Kearns is hopeful things pick up especially after his junior season. He had a busy summer and wants to see how things transpire in the coming months.
"I've been talking to all of them," Kearns said. "I haven't really focused on it during the season. I'm more focused on how we're doing.
"Once all the juniors start getting recruited heavier, I'm sure I'll be talking to them more. I remember Kyle Allen in a one-month window loaded up on offers. It's a similar situation where I need to play well this season and by playing well the offers will come."
