Kanoff Geared Up For Spring

The North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake quarterback, Chad Kanoff, will have several schools by in spring...

North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake quarterback Chad Kanoff (6-4, 205), was one of the better passers at the IMG/Madden 7on7 this past weekend in Redondo Beach.

Kanoff, who has a lone offer from Vanderbilt, is hoping the spring raises his profile.

The alma mater of projected first round pick Jonathan Martin has been known more for its basketball prowess but Kanoff is thankful for Martin's production at Stanford and making schools aware of the football talent at Harvard-Westlake.

"Thanks to Jonathan Martin, people know who we are and know our school more," said Kanoff. "So hopefully that will help get us recruited more heavily."

Aside from Vanderbilt, Kanoff is hearing from a number of programs across the country.

"I'm hearing from Northwestern, Duke, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Houston and Rutgers plus Vanderbilt," said Kanoff.

And Kanoff said the feedback he's getting has been relatively consistent.

"Most of the schools are saying they don't want to quite offer me early, that they want to wait to see me in the spring," said Kanoff. "So I understand that. It's more they want to meet me in person and see me throw."

Kanoff camped at Vanderbilt last summer, and after sending his junior film in, head coach James Franklin and his staff offered earlier this spring.

And he's hoping to have the kind of success rate with other schools coming by.

"I'm going to wait until spring practice to decide which schools I'll camp at," said Kanoff. "I'll have a better idea of who's more serious about me."

Kanoff does plan to go to the Elite 11 Regional Camp in Las Vegas in June, his only definite plans for the spring.
