2013 quarterback Kelly Hilinski, who recently showcased his talent in the Under Armour, Proving Ground, and US Army combines, is already on the radar of some major programs.

California quarterback Kelly Hilinski (Notre Dame Prep HS) may only be a junior, but he is already proving that the state's talent at his position is just as prevalent in the 2013 class.

Hilinski had a packed winter break, performing at three major combines (Under Armour, Proving Ground, and US Army) and is preparing for a busy off-season, including camps at USC, UCLA, Stanford, Oklahoma, and possibly Harvard, all programs he's been hearing from.

Not only does he possess a great frame (6'6", 220 lbs.), but Hilinski has also showcased a big arm and an ability to lead his team (8 passing TDs, 4 rushing TDs for almost 2000 yards this season). His on-the-field chemistry with junior running back Khalfani Muhammed made quite the statement and should last season be any indicator of the future, the duo will be a force to be reckoned with in 2012.

At this point in the recruiting process, Hilinski is unable to name a collegiate frontrunner, though he does know that strong academics will play a large part in his decision, as he currently plans to study medicine.
