Nolan Kearney, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback from Downingtown West High School is currently being heavily recruited by many schools around the nation after leading his team to the Pennsylvania Class AAAA playoffs as a junior. Connecticut is a school that he has been very interested in for quite some time now.
"I actually haven't heard from Connecticut as much as I'd like to, but we've definitely been in contact consistently for a long time now," Kearney explained. "I've been to the campus three separate times now and really liked everything about it there. When I was there they hadn't finished building the new facilities, so I can't wait to get back on campus and see how all that turned out. They were just putting a ton of money into everything football related and that shows a great commitment."
"I really think Coach (Randy) Edsall is ready to do big things with that program and has things going in the right direction," Kearney stated. "People there should be happy because they have a great coach who knows what he's doing and knows what he wants. My family and I were really impressed with him in general when we talked with him. Coach (Matt) Cersosimo is also a really cool guy. He's come down to my school to see me a few times and I think he was at one of my games this season."
The Connecticut staff recently requested a copy of Kearney's transcripts and has invited him to come back up for the spring practices and game. He has yet to receive his first scholarship offer, but is regarded as one of the best quarterback prospects in the Northeast for 2008.
As a junior, Kearney Completed 99 of 148 passes for 1526 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also carried the ball 68 times for 447 yards on the way to All-League and All-Area honors.
