Lovejoy (GA) athletes list Louisville

Two more athletes from Lovejoy High School in Georgia are expressing a return in interest in Louisville.

Lovejoy High School is getting to know the Louisville football program well. Five players from the successful program are receiving frequent interest from the Cardinal coaching staff. Lineman Anthony Parker and receiver Santini Washington are two that ITV has previously profiled. Their teammates, Aaron Williams and Kisan Flakes recently spoke with ITV and updated us on the progress of the recruiting.

Aaron Williams (6'0, 185) has lined up at receiver, runningback and safety, making an impact at each spot. He is being projected as either a receiver or safety at the college level.

As a junior, Williams pulled in 42 receptions for 640 yards. He was named All-Region, 2nd team All-State and All Clay-Henry for his efforts.

Williams told ITV that he will see more time at runningback this fall because Lovejoy Head Coach Al Hughes told him that he wants him on the field as much as possible.

Louisville, Cincinnati, Virginia, UAB and Mississippi State are a few teams that have shown a good amount of interest in Williams, but one team does appear to have a slight lead for his services.

"I'm really wide open," explained Williams. "Virginia would probably be my leader though. They have been recruiting me since I was a sophomore and have encouraged me to do better every year."

Williams also informed ITV that he needs to continue to focus more in the classroom and raise his GPA during his senior year.

Teammate Kisan Flakes (6'0, 175) also plays on both sides of the ball as the starting quarterback and at defensive back and is being recruited for both positions.

"I prefer to play quarterback," said Flakes, who is always a threat to leave the pocket. "I'd also like to play runningback, but I'm open to playing defensive back too. I'm still learning how to play defensive back really."

Kisan Flakes (LHS)
Flakes, a good student that is currently carrying a 3.4 GPA, is hearing from a number of high-major programs, such as Louisville, West Virginia, Michigan, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Georgia and Indiana. Mississippi State and West Virginia have already extended the talented athlete a scholarship.

He expressed his desire to continue to learn once he does get to the collegiate level.

"I'm a hard worker that always wants to win," explained Flakes. "I want to be able to learn from someone, but make sure that I get the opportunity to get on the field some. I'd be willing to redshirt my first year."
