2014 QB Kolbe talks Iowa visit, UT offer

By Jared Shanker

WESTMONT, Ill. -- One of the top performers at quarterback at the Core 6 showcase, Jake Kolbe (Naperville, Ill./Naperville Central), will head down to Illinois this weekend for a junior day.

Kolbe is just coming back from Iowa.

“I really liked the campus. I’ve always really like Iowa,” he said. “Coach [Greg] Davis, the offensive coordinator, is pretty impressive with the players he’s coached, and he coached at Texas for a while with Colt McCoy.”

If it wasn’t for Illinois, Kolbe would have visited Toledo for a junior day on Saturday.

“They want a more pro-style quarterback I guess,” he said. “They’re going to still run the spread but more passing. The coaching staff I really like, and I heard great things about Coach [Matt Campbell].”
