One on One with Kyle Israel

Kyle Israel is an excellent QB from University High School (Orlando, FL). Israel received an offer from UCF two weeks ago and he visited UCF over the last weekend. Israel also has an offer from FSU and he will take his official visit there this coming weekend.

Kyle Israel visited UCF last weekend and the Knights made an impression on him.  "I stayed at the Radisson Hotel.  It was pretty cool.  I knew a lot of the places that we went to and the people, but it was still nice.  I got to see a lot of the parts of the school that I've never seen before.  I had never seen the Academic Village which is the dorm, or the cafeteria, and the Student Union, or anything like that and it all were very very nice.  I never knew it's that nice so it was cool."

Israel will head to Tallahassee to take another official visit this weekend at FSU.  "Right now UCF is my leader.  I had a great weekend so right now I'll be going to Florida State and see what they got to offer.  I know that Xavier Lee committed to FSU last night (01/25), but the FSU coaches said don't worry about that.  They told me that I could go there as a gray shirt.  I would not enroll until next January.  I would be here and working out and helping out with my high school team in the fall."

Is FSU pushing hard to get you, and have they offer?

"Yes they have offered"


You had talked to UCF head coach George O'Leary.  What did he talked to you about?

"He told me to make the best decision.  I though he would pressure me, (to commit).  But, he didn't and I appreciated that.  He said take my visits before I make my decision.  I really like UCF right now and I feel comfortable there with all the people."


When will you make your decision?

"I'll make my decision early next week, probably, or on signing day." Quick Links:
