"I think it went real well," he said of the workout, "it was fun to go down there again and awesome to get in the turf building and get the workout in. I hung around [afterwards] and talked to Coach Barnett (the Lakers' Saginaw Valley area recruiter), he said he wouldn't know too much until he talks with the other coaches, but he knew I did real well and the coaches said I had a good day."
The validation of how well the workout went came only a few days later as Laker head coach Chuck Martin stopped into the Partlo home to talk with Kyle and his family.
"Coach Martin and a graduate assistant of his were here. They said that I did extremely well and the fact that they are sitting in my living room four days later tells me what they thought."
At 6'2, 190-lbs, with a 4.6 forty yard dash, Partlo has the athleticism to project to several different positions but is being recruited mainly as a quarterback by the Lakers. During Coach Martin's visit, he also got the straight talk on the scholarship offer situation.
"They said they haven't made any decisions yet and they haven't offered anyone else," Partlo reported, "[They'll know] once they finish up their visits, so in a couple weeks, they'll start making decisions."
And with their current timetable, it is possible that Partlo will get an early present.
"They said they will try to get it done before Christmas."
