The most coveted high school football recruit in the state of Kentucky said Friday night that Louisville has edged back out in front of Ohio State in the battle to land his services.
After yet another monster performance against rival St. Xavier Friday night, Trinity star James Quick told The Courier-Journal's Steve Jones that Louisville is once again the favorite to land his services.
According to Quick, his current list, in order is: 1. Louisville, 2. Ohio State, 3. Oregon, 4. Kentucky, 5. Tennessee, 6. Cincinnati. The Mr. Football favorite had previously stated that U of L was even with OSU.
That's the good news for Cardinal fans, the bad news is that Quick will be taking an official visit to Ohio State next week when the Buckeyes host Nebraska.
After last night's eight catch, 144-yard performance, Quick now has 33 catches for 513 yards and four touchdowns in five games at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
Seems like a pretty solid combination. No need to mess with a good thing, James.
In less exciting recruiting news, U of L quarterback commit Kyle Bolin suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury in Lexington Catholic's 24-21 win over Boyle County. Bolin is expected to have an MRI on the knee Monday.
This marks the second straight year a Louisville QB commit has injured his knee. In 2011, Coffee County (Ga.) signal caller Will Gardner tore his ACL in the first game of his senior season and missed the rest of the year. Gardner is currently redshirting at U of L as he works to get that knee back into shape.
