Future Louisville quarterback Kyle Bolin was excited watching current UofL signal caller Teddy Bridgewater throw the football all over Papa John's Cardinal Stadium Saturday during the Cardinals spring game.

"I was very, very impressed, it was great," Bolin said. "Teddy was in control of the offense and did a great job. I was very impressed with the offense. I feel like the coaching staff has gained more confidence in the players to spread the ball around. They have a quarterback that knows what he's doing and is virtually unstoppable for a defense. Teddy working so hard during the off-season has opened so many doors for the offense."

Bolin spent time Saturday with several of his future teammates, including 2012 recruits Sid Anvoots, a lineman from Indiana, Glasgow tight end Hunter Bowles and Ohio offensive lineman T.C. Klusman.

"We all get along and had a great time together," Bolin said. "It was great seeing those guys again and supporting our future team. It's also nice to see some of the new faces that the coaching staff wants to bring in and be able to introduce ourselves and talk to them and start a relationship with them."

Though Trinity stars Ryan White and Jason Hatcher didn't return from spring break in time to attend Saturday's spring game, five-star Shamrock wide receiver James Quick was in attendance. Quick and Hatcher are Louisville's top in-state 2013 recruiting targets.

"They both texted me and told me they wanted to be there, but James was there and he seemed like he really liked it," Bolin said. "He's a great player and we really want him. He's probably going to wait a little bit more to make a decision because he's got a lot more schools to look at."

Bolin sounded optimistic about Louisville's chances to land both Quick and Hatcher.

"The coaching staff is just so good at relating with the players," Bolin said. "I've been to show many places where it feels like they're selling the program and trying to tell you what you want to hear. But these guys make you feel more like a person when they talk to you."

Bolin also made a point to spend time with uncommitted Georgia DT Justin Akins, Georgia OL Chandler Bridges and Indiana OL Skylar Lacy. All three prospects have scholarship offers from the Cardinals.

"There was a really big defensive tackle, Justin [Akins], and I introduced myself to him, talked to him and got to know him a little bit," Bolin said. "Also there was a lineman from Georgia [Chandler Bridges] that got offered Saturday and it was his first offer. And Skylar Lacy, I got a chance to talk to him."

"They were really impressed," Bolin added. "I think they came in underestimating Louisville a little bit, but I think they realize how great it is."
