Boehm Might Not Wait Too Long

The 6-3, 210-pounder from San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty, Kyle Boehm, is one of the best quarterback prospects in the west for 2010. He talked to us about the schools he's considering and how he might not wait too long to make a decision...

San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty quarterback Kyle Boehm is the top passing prospect in Northern California, and the Scout 300 Watch List member already has eight scholarship offers.

His current offers are from Colorado State, San Jose State, Arizona State, California, Washington, Northwestern and Kansas State.

Boehm, though, is in no rush to end his recruitment, and figures to add more offers come spring time.

"I've been hearing a lot from USC, been getting handwritten letters from them, Illinois, Texas Tech, a lot of the Pac-10, UCLA, they're showing interest in me," said Boehm. "It's been a lot of schools but been pretty fun."

Boehm grew up an Oregon fan, but said he hasn't heard as much from the Ducks. "I've gotten a couple of letters, but that's been about it," said Boehm.

Last summer, Boehm camped at Cal and UCLA and said he will camp at both again this spring and summer, along with more. "I haven't really sat down and decided which camps I'll go to but I'm planning on going to the college camps I went to last year, plus the Elite 11 and then the camps of the scbools I have offers," said Boehm.

Fewer and fewer quarterbacks do the camp circuit, but Boehm isn't afraid to get out and camp. "I want to get out there and show what I have, compete with the best of the best and get out there as much as I can," said Boehm.

Last month, Boehm went to Cal and USC for their Junior Days.

"They were pretty fun," said Boehm. "I talked with (Coach Andy) Ludwig and (Coach Jeff) Tedford (from Cal) and Coach (Clay) Helton at USC. They were good conversations." Boehm said he's targeting late summer to make his decision. "I know I want to decide before my next season, like sometime in August," said Boehm.

Boehm, though, said no school has emerged as a leader. "I don't want to say I have a favorite but I do have a lot of interest in the Pac-10," said Boehm. "I'm looking to stay more on the West Coast."
