Columbus, Ga., Carver High School quarterback Jawon Pass, who remains committed to the University of Louisville, is expected to be on campus this weekend for the Cardinals' game against Syracuse. He talks about his future with Cardinal Authority.

With his senior season almost complete, Jawon Pass is ready to look into his future a bit.

The University of Louisville football quarterback commitment from Columbus, Ga., Carver High School remains "100 percent" committed to the Cardinals and is expected to make an unofficial visit to campus this weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Pass, who picked U of L over Alabama and Auburn in mid-July, has helped a young Carver team to an 8-1 mark. The Tigers clinched the Class 5-A regional title last weekend.

"It's been a good year," Pass said. "I'm learning a lot and I'm just trying to lead my team to a victory. I think I have been more of a leader this year and I think that's showing. It's been a lot of fun."

Pass said his brother, Khane, is having a "great time" at Louisville. Khane Pass is a true freshman safety who is redshirting for the Cardinals.

"I've been watching them and it's stilla great fit for me," Jawon Pass said. "I'm still committed. I like it there a lot."

With freshman Lamar Jackson winning thw quarterback battle for U of L this season, there had been chatter about Pass and his future but he said he welcomes the competition with Jackson and the other U of L quarterbacks that will return.

"Every time I picture him out there, I just try and learn the offense better," Pass said. "He's really good but I think we're really different. I'm a good athlete but I think he's a better athlete and I might be able to pass it better.

"People think we're a like, but we're pretty different. It will be a lot of fun."

Pass joked about lookin forward to the time when he can join Jackson and quarterback Reggie Bonnafon in the backfield. Jackson and Bonnafon have played a lot together in recent weeks in the U of L offense.

"Now, that would be fun," Pass said with a smile.
