Oklahoma: He loved Norman when he visited there, loves Stoops as a coach. Karl loved it. Also kinda close to home. He always has Sooner gear on and says they are his favorite team.
Utah: It's his hometown. He also loves the coaching staff and he has family there, an aunt and uncle and many friends. Loves Salt Lake City.
Louisiana Tech: No matter what you say, Tech will be a huge option for KJ; yeah, they're not the best team, but KJ loves them and reps them. Karl would love it for sure and he could stay right in town.
LSU: I think as his senior year comes along, LSU will be recruiting him like crazy.
Texas: He's got family in Dallas; he went to their camp in Austin and he seemed like he liked it but not as much as Oklahoma. But it would be hard to turn down the Longhorns with their new facilities and the new Longhorn Network.
Florida, Florida State and Miami: He seems to like all three when I talk to him about them, especially Miami. He fell in love with the movie "The U" but with all this talk of major violations, I don't know if they're one of his top teams anymore.
Boise State: His mom is an alum from there and they'll visit every once in awhile. Would he make the jump to the Gem State and play on the Blue?
Alabama: The Tide will be up there for sure. KJ went to the camp, and whenever I texted him and asked how he was doing, he would just say he was getting work done. Also for Nick Saban to offer a kid a scholarship for a 2013 recruit is crazy; Saban rarely ever does that, most coaches don't. But Saban must have fallen in love with what he saw in KJ.
Nebraska: Famous for the power run game, maybe he would look with the Cornhuskers?
Oregon: Talking to my Uncle Rob, we both know when KJ goes to visit Oregon, it's going to be hard to turn down, and I mean very hard. With the facilities Oregon has and all the money Phil Knight has put into this program from all the multiple jersey styles, pant styles, shoe styles and helmet styles, KJ might fall in love on the spot.
USC and UCLA: When Karl signed with the Lakers, KJ got to see USC and UCLA up close because he lived around the area for a year, so they could be a factor in this also.
