Rowe, Kiilsgaard Talk About Visit

A pair of four-star prospects visited Cal officially for their win over Oregon: quarterback/safety Kellen Kiilsgaard and defensive end Kenny Rowe. They talk about their time in Berkeley.

During the Bears big 45-24 win over Oregon, several class of 2007 prospects were in attendance, including a pair of four-star prospects who were visiting Berkeley for their official visits.

Long Beach (Calif.) Poly defensive end Kenny Rowe (6-4, 220):

Rowe returned from his second official visit in as many weeks, this time trekking north to the Bay Area to visit California when the Bears hosted Oregon.

"It was cool there," said Rowe. "Gary Doxy was my host and I spent some time with DeSean Jackson."

Doxy and Jackson were teammates of Rowe at Long Beach Poly and both were doing their part to recruit their fellow Jackrabbit north.

Prior to visiting Berkeley, Rowe took an official trip to Tucson to visit Arizona when they hosted Washington.

"I went to Arizona the week before but I think that Cal was a better trip," said Rowe. "I had been there before but I got to spend more time and got to stay up there longer. I got to talk to the coaches this time some more. Cal wants me as a defensive end."

Auburn (Wash.) quarterback Kellen Kiilsgaard (6-2, 210):

Auburn (Wash.) quarterback Kellen Kiilsgaard took his third official trip this past weekend, visiting Cal after having already tripped to Oregon and Washington.

"I really enjoyed my visit to Cal," said Kiilsgaard. "I thought it was a great atmosphere, and I was very impressed with their win over Oregon."

Kiilsgaard also liked what he saw from Berkeley and the players he met.

"I thought that the town of Berkeley was really a fun place to be," said Kiilsgaard. "I really enjoyed spending time with the players. I spent a lot of time with the freshman guys."

While there, he met with the Bears coaching staff.

"I thought that I got along well with the coaches, and they were real straight forward with me about what they plan for me to be position wise," said Kiilsgaard. "They want to bring me down as a quarterback, but in the back of their heads, know that if quarterback happens to not pan out, they would make a move over to defense, and they would trust me to be one of the top safeties out of this recruiting class.

This weekend, Kiilsgaard is scheduled to visit Stanford when the Cardinal host Arizona. Top Stories
