Lamar Jackson visit to Louisville was 'great'

Boynton Beach, Fla., quarterback Lamar Jackson has been a hot commodity in recent weeks with colleges but this weekend made his official visit with the University of Louisville. Jackson, who is committed to Louisville, recaps the visit for Cardinal Authority.

One of the top story lines heading into the final few weeks of recruiting for the University of Louisville football team is Lamar Jackson.

The three-star quarterback from Boynton Beach, Fla., has been committed to the Cardinals since last fall but has been a hot commodity in recent weeks.

Jackson has picked up several late scholarship offers, including from Florida, but after his visit with Louisville said the Cardinals are "way up there."

"It went just great," Jackson said. "I am still committed to Louisville. I really enjoyed the visit and I really like the offense they run."

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Jackson is expected to make visits to Florida and Mississippi State the next two weekends before signing day on Feb. 4.

When asked what were the chances he signs with U of L, Jackson responded "there's a really good chance. We'll just have to wait and see. A good chance."

Jackson, who threw for 1,306 yards and rushed for 962 while accounting for 35 total touchdowns as a senior, was named to Florida's 6-A first-team All-State team as a utility player by the Associated Press.

Cardinal Authority will keep you posted on his recruitment.
