The University of Louisville football program has had success with quarterbacks from Lexington Catholic High School.
Ex-LexCath quarterback Justin Burke played his final two years at U of L and is now an offensive assistant with the program, while recent LexCath graduate Kyle Bolin is a freshman with the Cardinals' program.
Now, Reese Ryan is on the U of L radar.
Ryan, who filled in for Bolin when he was injured last season as a sophomore, attended camp at Louisville last weekend and left with a scholarship offer – his first offer during the recruiting process.
"It's a little dynasty," Ryan said of the LexCath-to-Louisville deal. "I was so excited. It was one of the greatest feelings of my life. I did some individuals and then some 7-on-7 and coach (Shawn) Watson said I had an offer.
"I didn't expect it. But it was a great, great feeling."
Ryan went to camp at Notre Dame on Friday and also went to Illinois this weekend, landing his second offer there. He was at Florida a few weeks back and told that he was "one of the top two at my position, in my class." He also camped at Vanderbilt.
"It's a lot of fun so far," Ryan said of the recruiting process.
He said no matter what happens that U of L will stay near the top "of course, because they were the first to offer," noting he will "always have a soft spot" for U of L for showing early interest.
As a sophomore, Ryan completed 99 of 199 passes for 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He ran for 265 yards and three more TDs.
