I live in the Washington, DC area and wanted to share update / tidbit on class of 2018 QB recruit Kevin Doyle. I know there has been a lot of doom and gloom here about the state of current QB and O-line play, but I think this news is encouraging and I think QBs that Harbaugh and staff have recruited will eventually pan out like we all want them to.
Anyway, on my way into work, I had 106.7 THE FAN on and the Sports Junkies, a group of 4 regular hosts from the area, were on. All of these guys went to DeMatha High School, a powerhouse prep school you might have heard of - massive NBA and, to lesser extent, college football pipeline school. They almost always field competitive football teams on par with Good Counsel high school (Stefon Diggs, Blake Countess, etc). The hosts of this morning show are, as expected, massive homers and super proud supporters of DeMatha athletics.
Anyway, one of the hosts attended the DeMatha-St. John's game this past Saturday and, for what it is worth, said that "Kevin Doyle is the best high school QB he's ever watched live". The host said he was tall, athletic, saw the entire field well and "could make all the throws". Noted that he's going to Michigan and that he thinks he'll be a very good QB at the next level. Host said he "wished he was at DeMatha right now".
St. John's is the favorite to win the WCAC (private school division) in the DC-area this year. You might remember Kevin Hogan and his pretty good career at Stanford? Kevin Doyle is coming from that same competition level (Hogan attended a rival school in DC).
Washington Post credits him with 266 yards in the air, 2 TDs, 1 INT and 22 of 33 passing.
