Kolbe only has a single offer at this point in time. That offer is from the Toledo Rockets.

Although, he has not received offers, but is receiving interest from the Cincinnati Bearcats, the Illinois Fighting Illini, the Indiana Hoosiers, the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Iowa State Cyclones, the Northern Illinois Huskies, and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Kolbe is a 6’2″, 170 pound quarterback from Naperville, Illinois. He is currently a junior at Naperville Central High School.

The Naperville Central Redhawks finished the season with an overall record of 4-5 and a conference record of 4-3. They did not make the Illinois State Playoffs.

As a junior in 2012, Kolbe went 135-of-221 and threw for 1,700 yards. He threw twelve touchdowns and four interceptions.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 31st in the state of Illinois and 47th among pro-style quarterbacks by 247Sports.
