What They're Saying
Kevin is a smart, tough kid who has an NFL arm. If he continues to make progress and put up the numbers, he could easily be one of the top four quarterbacks for the 2007 NFL Draft.

Kevin Kolb is a very talented quarterback and a very good leader. He obviously fits their offensive scheme very well.
University of Miami Head Coach Larry Coker
Playing the position behind center comes very natural to him, which shows through in his play on the field, who exudes leadership and confidence to the players around him, and a player who is willing to sell out to do what it takes to win.
Kevin Kolb is one of the most competitive quarterbacks in college football. What he has accomplished coming straight out of high school to Cougar football is amazing. He knows the game and his offensive scheme. Over the past three seasons, he has basically become a coach on the field. He executes and just wins. I am glad we don't have to line up against him again.
University of Hawaii Head Coach June Jones
Kevin Kolb is an excellent quarterback. Not only can he throw the ball with tremendous accuracy, he moves well in the pocket and finds lanes to deliver the ball. You couple that with his ability to scramble and run; gosh, he's hard to defend.
Tulsa University Head Coach Steve Kragthorpe
Kevin is an awfully talented quarterback and a fierce competitor. He has a toughness and a willingness to win you want out of your quarterback. He's a true leader and has all the tools to be one of the top players in college football.
University of Louisville Head Coach Bobby Petrino
I remember him well. He's a very fine football player. He has the rare combination of throwing and running ability. There's not a throw that he can't make. He throws the long ball very well; he throws the mid-range ball well; and he throws the short ball well. You put all of that together with his mobility and you have a heckuva a quarterback.
Army Head Coach Bobby Ross
Kevin is outstanding. I was amazed at how good he was at such a young age. He is very tough to stop because he can beat you with his arm or his legs. He has been great for Houston & Conference USA!
UAB Head Coach Watson Brown
He is an outstanding, productive quarterback with a great future.
UCF Head Coach George O'Leary
Kevin Kolb is a very athletic and talented quarterback who is an offensive playmaker and an outstanding leader. His ability to feel pressure and scramble and his strong arm makes him a threat on any play.
University of Southern Miss Head Coach Jeff Bower
He's experienced. He's been starting since he was a freshman. He put the ball right where it needed to be. He is an accurate passer. I was impressed with his mobility. He was able to get out of some situations.
Mississippi State Head Coach Sylvester Croom
Everybody is aware of their quarterback (Kolb). He is a veteran player and he is very savvy. He understands the system.
Mike Gundy, Head Coach Oklahoma State
They've got a legitimate Heisman trophy candidate in their quarterback, no question about it. What he's done at that university and for that football program is phenomenal. His statistics are great, and he deserves that type of recognition. He's a really good kid and they should be very proud of what he's done.
UTEP Head Coach Mike Price
