Lafayette trio enjoy trip to Louisville

Three prospects from Lexington Lafayette High School made unofficial visits to the University of Louisville on Sunday. Clay Bolin, Devon Quincy and Walker Wood talk about the visits with Cardinal Authority.

The University of Louisville football staff hosted about 15 underclassmen from across the state on campus Sunday.

Among those prospects at U of L was a trio - Clay Bolin, Devon Quincy and Walker Wood - from Lexington Lafayette High School.

Bolin, a quarterback in the Class of 2016 and brother of current U of L quarterback Kyle Bolin, said new U of L assistant coach Pete Nochta was at Lafayette recently and he said the trio of players were "very excited" to get the invites.

"It was the first time I had an opportunity to get to talk with the new coaches," Bolin said. "I sat down with coach (Garrick) McGee and he told me a few things that will help me out.

"I enjoyed myself with two of my teammates. We had a good time."

Bolin is expected to be one of the top '16 prospects in the state after throwing for just under 950 yards and five TDs in five games last season for the Generals.

"We had a good time," Bolin said. "The coaches told me they were going to watch me and see how I progress but they like me right now."

The 6-1, 215-pound Quincy will be a senior next season and is a member of the Class of 2015. He played several positions last season and is being looked at as a tight end or defensive end/linebacker-type player.

Quincy said U of L is his first college contact and he's "hoping they want me to visit again. I really liked it there a lot."

He had seven catches for 102 yards and one TD, while recording 61 tackles, three fumble recoveries and two interceptions as a junior.

"I lined up on defense, pretty much everywhere but nose tackle," he said. "Right now, I'm not sure where I would play (in college)."

The 6-foot, 170-pound Wood is considered one of the top 2017 prospects in the Bluegrass State. He passed for just over 900 yards and five TDs in five games, also rushing for 200 yards as a freshman on the varsity level.

"It was my first visit anywhere and it was nice," Wood said. "I liked the coaches and it was a good experience for me."
