QB Kehoe Making Visits, Sets Throwing Dates
Cheshire (Conn.) Academy quarterback Patrick Kehoe is in the process of making unofficial visits, but four days in May could go a long way in determining where he ends up playing college football. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound lefty will throw for schools on May 6, 8, 12 and 15, and Penn State, Rutgers, UCF and South Florida are all expected to be at one of the sessions. "A lot of schools say they love my film, they want to see me throw in person and their first question is always, ‘What's the competition like?' " Kehoe said. "I just want to prove myself this spring and summer." Kehoe, recently picked up an offer from Holy Cross, visited UCF last week and will be at South Florida on Wednesday. He and his brother 6-6 tight end M.J. Kehoe, is also visiting Elon on Thursday and Villanova on Friday, and could add a visit to North Carolina or Duke as well. Closer to home, he will be at Rutgers on March 29 and make a return visit to Penn State on April 5. "I'm getting heavily recruited by Penn State and Rutgers," Kehoe said. "I've been in a lot of contact and I get a lot of mail from (Rutgers). Their coaches say they get fired up watching my film and they're excited to have me come for a visit on campus and get to know them in person. "So I'm excited to get there and meet them in person and see what happens when I meet them in person, whether it's an offer or they say they're going to come in the spring and see me work out." The trip to Penn State will be a return for him after he visited for a recent junior day. "Their quarterback coach has been moved into being my main recruiter," Kehoe said. "He said he loves my film. We started a great relationship over the phone and then meeting them in person at their junior day. He basically said before they offer he wants to see me throw in person. He said he was definitely going to show up …and see me work out." Kehoe, a lefty, completed 193 of 300 passes for 3,294 yards, 39 touchdowns and five interceptions as a junior, but playing in Connecticut limits his exposure. His family is on spring break in Florida, which afforded him the chance to visit UCF last week. "It was a beautiful campus," Kehoe said. "It's the second-largest campus in the country and I loved all the facilities, I loved meeting the coaching staff. They were great people and we went to practice and there was great energy. I definitely feel like I can fit the scheme as a quarterback there." The trip to USF will be his second, but this one should be different. He was there two years ago when Skip Holtz was the coach. "I didn't really get to see practice like I will on Wednesday because they weren't really recruiting me as much," Kehoe said. "Now, I think they're recruiting me a little harder and I expect to see great facilities. It will probably be a great practice, like I saw at UCF."
