Craft is a big-time signal-caller

The leader of one of top JC programs in the state of California this year has been Mt. San Antonio's Kevin Craft (6-5, 215). He's got a big arm, he put up huge numbers and now schools are taking a look at the former San Diego State signal-caller. JCFootball.com caught up with him recently and he talked about his season and he also gave us an update on recruiting as well.

"It's been a lot of fun this year," Craft told JCFootball.com. "My dad (Tom) was hired at Mt. SAC as the offensive coordinator and he and I have a really good relationship and I feel like I've learned more this year than at any time in my life honestly."

Craft signed with San Diego State out of high school, but said that he figured out it wasn't for him.

"It just wasn't a good situation for me there," Craft said. "I just didn't feel comfortable with things and I just needed to leave and when I was looking around, I just figured my dad had coached me all my life so why not head to Mt. SAC and see what we could do."

All Craft did was end up throwing for over 3,500 yards, 38 touchdowns and only five interceptions while leading the Mounties to a 10-2 record and a spot in this weekend's state championship game against City College of San Francisco.

"It's been a long time since this school has won on this level," Craft said. "I think the last time they played for the state championship was back in 1997 so everyone around here is just pumped and ready to get going.

"We respect City College a lot, but we think we have the best team and we want to go out and play our best and we'll see who ends up on top."

Craft's prototype size and arm have attracted the attention of several schools the past few months including Hawaii, Akron and North Carolina.

"Hawaii offered me a few weeks ago and I'm going to go visit them after my finals are over with," Craft said. "There's a really good chance I will be there next weekend, but I'm not sure at this point.

"Akron wants me to come out and visit bad and they will probably offer on my visit and then UNC has been in contact and they said they are looking to bring me in for a visit too, but that one hasn't been set up yet."

Craft expects to be a December graduate and will have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
