Trinity High School wide receiver James Quick, the state’s most coveted college football prospect, said Tuesday night after the Shamrocks’ basketball game that he’ll make an official visit to the University of Louisville this weekend.
He also reaffirmed that the Cardinals are “slightly number one” in a recruitment that he said he plans to end with a televised announcement during the Jan. 5 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.
He has already visited Ohio State — just behind the Cards — and said he’ll see Oregon, the University of Kentucky and Tennessee before making his decision.
New UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown and defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot and Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman and wide receivers coach Zach Smith attended Trinity’s basketball victory over Seneca.
Quick, still sidelined with broken ribs sustained during the football playoffs, said U of L assistant coaches Ron Dugans and Vance Bedford visited his home this week, and the OSU assistants met with him earlier Tuesday. Brown and Quick talked after the basketball game.
* Trinity defensive end Jason Hatcher, who is committed to Southern California and is also a U.S. Army All-American, said he’ll officially visit Kentucky, USC, Florida and U of L during consecutive January and February weekends immediately leading up to national signing day on Feb. 6.
He said he remains firmly pledged to the Trojans but had always planned to look at other schools.
