QB Lovett Hosting Schools

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) quarterback John Lovett has torn it up on the combine circuit the last month, culmination with the QB MVP at the Nike Football Training Camp Sunday. Schools are coming in to see him throw, and he spoke to FOX Sports NEXT about it.

John Lovett of DeMatha Catholic High (Hyattsville, Md.) continued his impressive spring camp performances when he was named the quarterback MVP at Sunday's Nike Football Training Camp, and next on the horizon is throwing for schools.

The 6-foot-2 ½, 200-pound Lovett, who holds an offer from Buffalo, is readying to host a number schools this month.

Wake Forest and Marshall have been in to see Lovett, and Boston College and Connecticut are coming "in the near future," DeMatha coach Elijah Brooks said.

"Temple is really interested," Lovett said. "I've been talking to Purdue, I've been talking to UConn, and I've been talking to Penn State. A lot of schools want to come see me throw. I'm also talking to a lot of Ivy League schools like Princeton and Cornell."

After transferring to DeMatha after his sophomore season, Lovett completed 127 of 219 passes for 2,156 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Lovett showed very good touch and arm strength, and also threw the ball quickly.

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez worked with Lovett during the camp, and Lovett found plenty of other instruction from the coaches at the camp.

"The coaching staff is outstanding," Lovett said. "You really learn a lot of fundamentals and little things with mechanics, and you also learn a lot about coverages and anticipation. "Anticipation was a big thing that I learned. This, and Elite 11, you learn so much."
