2013 Louisville quarterback commit Kyle Bolin had a great time attending Charlie Strong's football camp last weekend and told InsideTheVille.com he hopes to finish high school early and enroll at UofL next January.

"It went great," Bolin said. "I got a chance to work with Coach [Shawn] Watson…and learned a lot. It was nice to be around the coaches and get a couple workouts in and also hang out with a couple of the committed guys and targets they're looking at. It was a great weekend."

Bolin, who showed good footwork and accuracy during camp drills Sunday morning, made one terrific touch pass deep downfield along the sideline on the final day of camp. After camp, Bolin received positive feedback from Watson, Louisville's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

"He thought I had a great weekend," Bolin said. "He told me not to change anything."

A four-star prospect, Bolin is a key recruit for the Cardinals in 2013. In fact, Charlie Strong's coaching staff hopes the 6-3, 200-pound Bolin will enroll early at Louisville to help him adjust to college life and learn Watson's offensive system.

"They're really pushing me to graduate early so I can get on campus and start learning the playbook," Bolin said.

If he can swing it with Lexington Catholic's administration, Bolin would love to finish high school early and join the Cardinals next January.

"It's what I want to do but it's going to be hard with the requirements to get a diploma from my high school," Bolin said. "It's possible but it's going to be hard. Hopefully my administration at my school will work with me and make it happen.

"Coach Watson was really stressing to me to get there early. I think it would help me out tremendously, not only on the field in the football aspect but also being able to get a head start in the classroom."

Bolin says he was impressed with a few prospects who attended Louisville's camp this weekend, particularly Indianapolis wide receiver Jalen Edwards and Orlando, Fla., defensive back Troy Dunnell. Though both players are on the Cardinals recruiting radar neither has received an offer from Charlie Strong's program.

"I thought Jalen had a hell of day [Saturday]," Bolin said. "He caught every single pass and the defense had a hard time stopping him. He was really explosive and ran crisp routes. It was very easy to hook up with him on patterns.

"As for Troy, I thought he was outstanding as well. The two workouts that I saw I don't think one completion was made against him and that was his first time going to camp as a defensive back because he just recently switched from playing linebacker. He's a big-bodied kid, about 6-0, 195. He was very physical and locked down every receiver with his body. I think he could be an outstanding player."

Bolin also enjoyed hanging out with several Louisville commitments this weekend, including Florida safety Terrence Ross, Georgia linebacker Jacarthy Mack, and Indiana lineman Skylar Lacy.

"It was great to hook up with the guys, especially Terrence and Jacarthy, who I have never met before," Bolin said. "I had a great time with Terrence. We hung out all weekend. I had a blast with him and Troy Dunnell. It's always good seeing Skylar. And I got to speak with Jacarthy and he seems like a cool guy."

With Louisville's camp complete, Bolin will turn his attention to preparing for his senior season and earning an invitation to the US Army All-American game in San Antonio, TX.

"I'm going to the SBU Camp this weekend because the people who select the U.S. Army All American game are going to be there and they want to evaluate me," Bolin said. 'Besides that I'm just preparing for the season."
