San Antonio (Texas) Clark quarterback Josh Kern may not be as well-known as other passers in the Lone Star State. However, the 6-foot-5, 190-pound junior has impressed quite a few schools as his film has made the rounds.
Many programs wanted to see the tall passer in person during spring ball but Kern decided to end the recruiting process before that could happen as he committed to a Pac-12 program.
"I committed to Arizona," Kern said. "I committed on Friday of la week but I didn't really make it official until Monday. I called coach (Frank) Scelfo on Friday and told him I was going to commit. He came to my school on Monday and then I called coach (Mike) Stoops with my coach and told him."
Kern did not originally plan to make a decision quite this early but a recent campus visit changed his mind.
"I visited them for the spring game and I liked everything about it," he said. "I was actually going to wait until the end of spring ball to make my decision but when I got back I felt like it was the right fit. I knew I wanted to commit."
Kern came away impressed with everything he saw in Tucson.
"The campus was awesome," he said. "It was definitely one of the nicest campuses I've been to. I fell in love with all the coaches and everything too so it was just a perfect fit."
The tall quarterback is now just excited to have his decision made.
"It's been a great process," Kern said. "I'm extremely happy for what it has all come to. I'm really excited to be a Wildcat."
This past season Kern threw for 1,050 yards and seven touchdowns while adding 369 yards and another seven scores on the ground.
