Kyle Shurmur, son of Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, is registered at La Salle High and prepping to play quarterback for the Explorers in the fall.
Shurmur, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound junior, recently moved to the area with his family. Pat Shurmur was head coach of the Cleveland Browns before joining Chip Kelly's staff.
As a backup last season for powerhouse St. Edward (Ohio), Shurmur played well in a backup role. He completed 7 of 10 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in a 51-0 drubbing of Washington's Woodson.
It is expected that Shurmur, a Division I-A prospect, will take over at QB for Drew Gordon's squad, with speedy junior Jimmy Herron remaining as a multipurpose performer/wildcat QB.
Shurmur is likely to also join La Salle's swimming team. He excels in the 100-yard backstroke and 100 freestyle.
Before choosing La Salle, he also reportedly visited Catholic League Class AAAA rival St. Joseph's Prep and Penn Charter.
