James Quick 'impressed' by Louisville

Trinity High School five-star wide receiver James Quick has made unofficial visits to the first two University of Louisville football games. Quick talks to Cardinal Authority about his visits and possible other trips in the future.

James Quick has helped the Trinity High School football team to a 3-0 start and has also visited two college football games – both at the University of Louisville.

The five-star wide receiver is considering five schools but said the hometown Cardinals' have "impressed me" in the first two weeks of the college season.

Quick was on hand when a record-crowd at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium saw Louisville deck Kentucky 32-14 and then he returned last week to see the Cardinals dispatch of Missouri State 35-7.

"They had a really good crowd for the Kentucky game and it really impressed me by how the fans supported the team," Quick said. "I liked what they do with their receivers, getting them in and out of there.

"I went back to see if it was as good as the first game. They didn't have as big of a crowd but it was still really good fan support and it impressed me."

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Quick – considered the best college prospect in the Bluegrass State – is also considering Ohio State, Cincinnati, Oregon and Kentucky. He said during his high school season he's "really just focused on my team."

But Quick is planning trips to watch games at Ohio State and Cincinnati later this season, noting that "I will go to both those (schools) for games."

"I'm really just focused on our season," he added.

Quick is off to another stellar start for the Shamrocks. He has 25 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns through three games.

The Shamrocks are ranked No. 4 in the FoxSportsNext national top 50 heading into this week's home game against Cincinnati St. Xavier.

"It's a lot different for us this year," Quick said. "I'm not saying our offensive line is bad, they're just all new right now. We're getting better. Our like is getting better, our receivers, quarterbacks and running backs are getting better.

"We're not at the peak of our game yet."

Quick now ranks in the top five of virtually every career receiving record in the state of Kentucky. He has 220 career catches for 3,503 yards and 47 touchdowns.

He ranks fourth all-time in TD catches and fifth in career receptions and career receiving yards.

Cardinal Authority will keep up with Quick throughout the season.
