Season over for Nick Montana, Erik Kohler

Oaks Christian was upset 42-41 in overtime tonight by Gardena Serra in the CIF-SS Northwest Division championship, ending its winning streak at 34 games.
That means that other than all-star games, the high school careers are over for two of UW’s more touted recruits in its Class of 2010 — quarterback Nick Montana and offensive tackle Erik Kohler.
According to the reports on the Varsity Times Insider blog of the LA Times, sounds like Montana had a rough night, throwing three interceptions, one returned for a touchdown by Devin Spann, reportedly leaning toward Arizona State.
Oaks Christian was led by the four rushing touchdowns and 295 rushing yards of running back Malcom Jones, who is headed to UCLA, though Kohler’s blocking surely helped in that effort, as well.
Here’s a preview of the game that talks about the stakes involved tonight, including a shot for Oaks Christian to get an invite to the state title game (there are so many teams in California that they don’t play it off all the way to the state level but do have a bowl series in which teams are invited to compete).
Montana, son of the legendary Joe Montana, still has at least one game left before setting his sights solely on being a Husky as he has been invited to play in the Under Armour All-American Jan. 2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
As reported in this story, Montana was one of 85 top players in the country as selected by ESPN and Scout, Inc. to compete in the game, which is in its fourth year of existence and will be televised by ESPN at 8 a.m. PDT.
Kohler also has a game left, having been selected to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, also on Jan. 2, in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
HARBAUGH TO KANSAS? — Also tonight is news that Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh may be headed to Kansas — his wife is from the area — though there is nothing official yet.
