Hogan Down to Four; Decision Coming Soon

Gonzaga High (Washington, D.C.) quarterback Kevin Hogan cut his list of suitors to four schools, and a decision is coming soon. ScarletReport.com has the list of four schools, and when to expect a decision on which school he will attend. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Hogan is high on Rutgers' board, but is Hogan high on the Scarlet Knights? Find out inside.

Having visited the schools he is considering and having pared his list to for – Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Stanford – quarterback Kevin Hogan of Gonzaga High (Washington, D.C.) should have a decision within two weeks.

That was the word from Gonzaga coach Aaron Brady, who addressed his quarterback's recruitment with ScarletReport.com.

"He'll probably make a decision in the next two weeks," Brady said. "I would say by July 1 he'll make a decision where he's going to go."

Brady said Hogan was done taking trips, and he would spend the next few weeks weighing the pros and cons of each school. He added Rutgers was pushing hard for Hogan lately, but he didn't believe the 6-foot-4, 200-pounder did not have a leader at this juncture.

"Rutgers would definitely like to have him," Brady said. "He's been to all of them. That was an important thing for him. He's been to all the places, he has a feel for the coaches. There are four schools that really want him, which is also a good feeling. There's no wishy-washy involved. He's very excited about that."

While a decision looms, Hogan's current focus is on 7-on-7 drills and team building exercises.

"We're in the middle of a pretty serious two-week period with our football team," Brady said. "It's a time to get back involved with the kids. He's been away a lot in the spring, with all the visits and that stuff.

"He's got to get back with the team again, get that camaraderie going because he has to be the leader. The kids have to believe in him, and he has to be here a little bit."

Gonzaga competed in one at Richmond last weekend, and will be at Maryland this weekend to compete in one.

"He just zinged the ball all over the place at Richmond," Brady said. "He worked really hard in the offseason to improve his technique and fundamentals, and it shows. I'm excited to see him play this fall."

As a junior, Hogan completed 135 of 220 passes for 1,875 yards and 16 touchdowns, but his focus in the offseason has been on improving his footwork and his release.

"He's definitely more polished than he was last year when you watch him on film," Brady said. "He worked hard on it in the offseason."
