Kyle Kearns does not have any offers yet but major programs are recruiting him and the 2015 quarterback from Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill is hopeful things could happen soon.
Texas recently stopped by to see Kearns throw and Vanderbilt was by his school on Wednesday as the 6-foot-3, 184-pound prospect who looked good at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles gets going with the recruiting process.
Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Major Applewhite and quarterbacks coach Ricky Rahne were out for Texas and Vanderbilt, respectively.
"I'm going to try to make it out (to Texas) on June 2," Kearns said. "I'm really looking forward to working more with coach Applewhite. He's a really cool guy.
"I talked to him on the phone for about 45 minutes after the workout and just got the feel for his coaching style. I'm starting that relationship now and carrying that into the coming years. He'll be the guy I'm working with if I go to Texas every day and going into quarterback meetings with him so starting that relationship now is beneficial."
Vanderbilt has already offered 2015 quarterback Josh Rosen from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco so Kearns is not sure if the Commodores will offer him or if he's second on their list but he's still excited about the SEC interest.
Kearns, who threw for 2,500 yards with 26 touchdowns in his sophomore season, said he's getting a good feeling from Vanderbilt as his recruitment continues.
"He came by and was watching me throw," Kearns said.
"It was pretty windy out there so he was taking videos of me throwing and he liked all the stuff I was doing. I've had a relationship with him even before he came out so he knew me and liked my film and liked how I threw. He told me to try to make it out to their camp this summer and he's really excited about me."
Georgia and Michigan are expected to stop by Pleasanton Foothill on Thursday. UCLA is expected in next week and others could be on the way, too.
For Kearns, Georgia is an especially big one and he's hopeful a good performance could lead to his first offer.
"Georgia is a big one," Kearns said. "Georgia was one of the first schools to show interest in me and coach (Mike) Bobo I've had a relationship with him on the phone.
"I've talked to him weekly about everything. He's one of those guys you can talk about anything you want and he's a really nice guy and understands quarterbacks and their mindsets. The whole coaching staff knows I'm looking for Georgia as one of my main schools and that's one of the schools I'm most interested in right now."
