Trip Report - Jamaal Kearse

You could certainly argue that Zach Fogerson and Jamaal Kearse came into this past weekend's official visit with the least to gain in terms of finding out something new about their college of choice, as they have brothers currently playing on the football team. So in many ways this was just another chance for them to hang with their family and to have some fun before the hard work begins.

"It was pretty good," Jamaal Kearse told Dawgman.com of his official visit to Washington. "It was a lot of fun."

As you would expect, his older brother Jermaine was his host. "It was pretty good," the younger Kearse said of the visit. He showed me around. He just told me how classes are like and stuff like that." Jamaal added that they don't talk a ton during the school year, outside of a few text messages.

The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Kearse was set to have a big year at receiver for Lakes until QB Dalton Gervais transferred to Rogers. So instead he put a lot of his effort into playing defense, and was rewarded with a spot on the Associated Press All-State football team. The Huskies told him initially he would come in to play receiver, and Kearse is open to whatever move will get him on the field.

"I'm not really sure where I'm playing," he said. "I just talked to all the coaches there and had conversations with all of them. I don't really have a preference."

Because this visit was a lot more of the same for Kearse, the familiarity didn't produce any real highlights for his visit. "We went out to the Crab House for dinner, and then went up to Ivar's (on Sunday)," he said.
