Cards offer a pair of young QB prospects

The University of Louisville football staff is doing a lot of evaluating quarterbacks of the future for the program. The Cardinals have offered several quarterbacks in recent days, including 2015 target Drew Lock and 2016 standout Sean Green. Cardinal Authority has information on both of the new offers.

University of Louisville quarterback coach Shawn Watson held the school's inaugural Quarterback Academy this week.

Watson and the staff have been looking for quarterbacks of the future for the program. Trinity's Reggie Bonnafon is in the Class of 2014 and committed.

But in recent days the Cardinals have offered two other prospects.

Lee's Summit, Mo., High School quarterback Drew Lock – a Class of 2015 two-sport star – earned an offer off Watson seeing video, while '16 standout Seth Green of Woodbury, Minn., East Ridge earned his offer from the camp.

Both players said the offer was their second offer. Lock also had an offer from Missouri, while Green has one from Minnesota.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pound Lock, who is also a basketball star, is also hearing from Arkansas, Notre Dame, Stanford and Michigan State.

Lock, whose father Andy played offensive line at Missouri, threw for 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore and averaged 20 points in basketball.

"I have heard from Louisville before but not much," Lock said. "(Watson) said he saw my film and I had everything he liked. He said I was one of their top guys.

"It surprised me a little bit. But I know they have a good program and Teddy Bridgewater is a monster. The quarterbacks coach builds QBs very well. I know Teddy wasn't near the quarterback he was now when he came in."

Lock said he would camp at Notre Dame this weekend.

Green is a 6-foot-2, 175-pound sophomore was a U.S. Army All-American Combine invitee after setting a number of school records as a freshman. He helped guide the school to the Class 5-A state championship game.

Green set new marks for single-season passing yards and touchdowns.
