Louisville offers Bolin

One of the top 2013 quarterback prospects in the Midwest is Lexington (KY) Catholic's Kyle Bolin. He picked up his second scholarship offer Thursday when Louisville made their intentions known. Bolin, who was previously offered by Illinois, will participate in the Elite-11 Quarterback Camp next week in Columbus, Ohio.

Lexington (KY) Catholic quarterback Kyle Bolin is a top 2013 prospect, and Thursday he landed his second BCS scholarship offer. Louisville became the second program to issue an offer, following Illinois earlier this year.

As a first-year sophomore starter, Bolin, 6-foot-3, 185-pounds, threw for over 2,300 yards with 18 touchdown tosses. He also ran for 621 yards, while scoring 12 rushing touchdowns. Bolin started at wide receiver as a freshman.

"I was offered by Louisville today, and that means a lot to me," Bolin stated. "The fact that Louisville is ready to place their trust in me at such a young age means the world to me. I've visited there before and I love everything about the program."

"As with Illinois, Louisville is a school I will consider highly," he added. "I will be back at Louisville for camp this summer, and I'm looking forward to being able to work with those guys closely. This is a great day for me."

With the spring evaluation period under way, it's not surprising that several top programs have been at Lexington Catholic inquiring about Bolin, even though he has two years of high school remaining.

"It's been great having all the coaches in our school," he explained. "Schools like Kentucky, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Miami of Ohio, and a few others have been around, and it's exciting. I'm still trying to get better as a quarterback every day, because I know I have a lot to work on."

"I will be going to the Elite-11 quarterback camp next week in Columbus," he continued. "My goal is to be the best quarterback at that camp, and take home the top honors. I love to compete and I don't care if I'm one of the youngest players there or not, because I'm going there to do my absolute best."
