Jacob Karam reports about Junior Day

Friendswood signal caller Jacob Karam recently attended Texas Tech's Junior Day. One of the top quarterbacks in the Lonestar State for 2009, Karam has the interest of some major programs, including LSU, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M. So what did he think of Lubbock? Come inside to find out.

As a junior, Jacob Karam (6-1, 191, 4.7) threw for 1,951 yards and 25 touchdowns, which pushed his totals up to more than 4,000 yards and 48 touchdowns passing over the last two years.

Karam has picked up three offers in the early going of the recruiting process, but he is getting interest from several other schools.

"I'm sitting on three offers right now," Karam said. "I've got one from Stanford, U of H (Houston) and Arizona. Louisville seems pretty interested, along with Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, Oklahoma and LSU."

So far this spring, Karam has attended junior day at Texas Tech and Notre Dame and both places made a lasting impression.

"Texas Tech was very cool," said Karam. "I'm a big fan of their offensive style. I like their coaches and their facilities are really cool.

"Notre Dame was absolutely beautiful. I'm Catholic you know, so I loved all of their awesome tradition and coach (Charlie) Weiss was unbelievable. I just loved every bit of it."

Early on, there was a lot of talk that it would ultimately come down to an LSU/Oklahoma battle for Karam's services, but it appears that he is a lot more wide open than many felt.

"I'm very interested in both of those schools but honestly I'm just really wide open," he said. "I mean LSU and Oklahoma, I love both of those schools a lot but I'm just really wide open to the Oklahoma schools, the Arizona schools, LSU big-time, and Texas Tech, U of H and SMU too."
