Recruiting Update: Colin Kaepernick

Pitman QB Weighs Options

Colin Kaepernick has some decisions to make regarding his future in athletics.  Currently he is the starting QB for Pitman High School and in the spring he is the ace of the Pride pitching staff.  In both sports, Kaepernick is garnering D1 attention.


In football, the 6'5 190 pound senior is having a great season.  Currently, in eight games, Kaepernick has thrown for 1,279 yards completing 75 of his 132 passes.  Even more impressive, is his 18 to 5 touchdown to interception ratio.  In his latest outing against Atwater, Kaepernick was 11 for 17 for 286 yards and 4 TDs.  These stats, along with 6'5 size, have brought out D1 interest.  A few weeks ago, Mike Riley of Oregon State was on the sideline checking out Kaepernick and his team.  Nevada is currently setting up an official visit and Wyoming is starting to show interest.


As a pitcher for the baseball team last spring, Kaepernick was 6 and 1 in conference and had a 1.54 ERA, with 82 strikeouts gaining him All-District and All-Conference honors. As a baseball player, Kaepernick has solid offers from Fresno State and U.C. Davis. Although Kaepernick has more offers regarding baseball, he considers himself a football player and is currently leaning towards playing football in college if given the chance.


The next two weeks are big for the QB as his 5 and 3 team takes on undefeated Golden Valley and then Los Banos to close out league play.  If he can keep putting up stats like he has so far this season, Kaepernick will continue to get more options for his future.
