NH junior familiar with UConn

New Hampshire is not usually a state that produces a large quantity of BCS level talent, which makes it even odder that one school in the state has at least two prospects in the Class of 2012. Athlete Jake Kiley of New Hampton (N.H.) Prep joins Javar Coleman as a prospect that has caught UConn's early attention.

"Recruiting is going very well," said Kiley, who is 6-foot-2 and 171 pounds. "I've taken unofficial visits to UConn and Penn State, and I'm also in contact with Boston College, Syracuse, Rutgers, UCLA and Stanford."

Kiley has already taken multiple trips to UConn, with his second one being this fall.

"I went to the game when they played West Virginia," said Kiley. "I went to the recruiting dinner, got a tour of the stadium, locker rooms and stuff. I think the coaching staff is great and very friendly. The stadium and the fans were great too."

Kiley further discussed his recruiting coach at UConn.

"I'm talking to Coach Foley, the offensive line coach, the most, because he is the coach that recruits our area," said Kiley. "But when I was there I talked with the defensive back coach for a good hour. I went to a one-day camp there this summer and I was on his 7-on-7 team. He said he was very impressed."

As mentioned, Kiley's first trip to UConn was a stop for the summer camp this year.

"I did well in all of the drills and games, but my testing was slow though," said Kiley. "It was the day after the Boston College camp ended so I was dead tired."

Soon, Kiley will hit the road once again.

"I'm going to the junior day at Boston College, but I'm not sure what else so far," said Kiley. "I'm still planning. I know I'm going back to Penn State in April for a Nike Combine and I'm going to Rutgers on February 28th for a combine there, but other than that I'm not sure so far."

Finally, Kiley gave some insight on his junior season.

"My team finished 7-2 with a loss in the championship," said Kiley. "On offense I played quarterback and ended up with 14 rushing touchdowns and 10 passing, then on defense I played corner and had 47 tackles, four interceptions and three sacks. I was named the MVP of the league as a junior and made the All-New England team for a second year in a row." will continue to keep a close eye on Kiley.
