Son of ex-U of L QB enjoys Cards game

One of the University of Louisville football targets is B.J. Nagle, who is the son of former U of L standout quarterback Browning Nagle. The Class of 2014 quarterback made an unofficial visit to watch the Cardinals last weekend.

B.J. Nagle has been to numerous University of Louisville football games over the years with his father, Browning, a former standout quarterback for the Cardinals.

But last Saturday, Nagle came in a different capacity.

A rising junior quarterback prospect from Memphis, Tenn., Briarcrest Christian, is now being recruited by the Cardinals and came on an unofficial visit.

"It was a little different feeling," the younger Nagle said. "Usually, I come to one or two games a year and everybody asks and (Browning) always says, ‘This is my son.' But this time he was able to say, ‘This is my son, he's being recruited'.

"So it was different but it was pretty neat. I really enjoyed myself."

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Nagle watched the Cardinals tag Missouri State with a loss and said U of L is now showing interest in him.

"It's been recent, but they've been in touch and I hope it continues," he said.

The Cardinals were his first visit to a game. He plans on taking in a game at Auburn this weekend and is also in contact with Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, LSU, Vanderbilt, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

He also plans to attend a game at Oklahoma State later this season.

Briarcrest is 4-0 on the season and Nagle said last week he finished with 280 yards passing and four touchdowns in the victory.

Nagle said he's "very excited" to be getting all the attention and noted his father has played a "very big part," in helping him become the player he is now.

"He's taught me everything I know," the younger Nagle said. "We're always working on making me better. He's built a good fundamental base with me and now we're beginning to work on the mental game. It's fun having him around."
