Kyle Bolin only played in six games during his high school football season before suffering a season-ending knee surgery that required surgery.
Bolin, a four-star prospect, signed with the University of Louisville in February and will move into his dorm on Saturday and enroll in classes next Monday.
And he'll do it with a knee he called "100 percent or more."
"I am back to doing everything I was doing before it and actually it feels better than my other leg," Bolin said, noting it will be up to the U of L trainers once he gets on campus as to how much he will participate right away.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Bolin said no matter what the trainers have him doing early on that he's excited to have his injury behind him.
"I am doing everything I would have done before the injury, cutting at full speed, running at full speed, lifting fully," Bolin said.
Bolin, who has been the leader of the '13 class at U of L in getting guys to connect via social media prior to arriving on campus, said he's "ready to go to work," as soon as he gets on campus.
He's also excited to be around the 17-player class that he's helped bring closer together up until now.
"I am so excited to move in and grow closer with my class, even though we are all pretty close already," Bolin said. "It's awesome, we don't have to waste any time getting to know one another. We can enjoy college as a family from day one.
"It's going to be a blast."
Before the injury, he started six games, throwing for 1,556 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also rushing for an additional 187 yards and 4 scores. He threw for 7,038 passing yards and 63 touchdowns during his prep career.
