Belle Glade, Fla., quarterback James Blackman was one of the QBs to shine at Louisville's Quarterback Academy on Tuesday

The University of Louisville football staff hosted around 40 prospects for the Louisville Quarterback Academy on Tuesday. One of the standouts was Belle Glade, Fla., signal caller James Blackman. Here's a recap of the day:

The University of Louisville has had a nice run of luck with quarterbacks from South Florida.

The Cardinals had Teddy Bridgewater and now have Lamar Jackson - both QBs from South Florida - running the offense, while another rising prospect from the area is currently on campus.

With around 40 prospects at Louisville's Quarterback Academy, Belle Glade, Fla., Glades Central standout James Blackman has been the most impressive player at the camp. U of L quarterback coach Nick Petrino is running the camp.

The 6-foot-4, 160-pound needs to put on some more weight and needs to get stronger, but he has all the potential in the world. He has natural arm talent - strong and accurate - and appears to have a great feel for the game.

Blackman has an offer from Louisville, while also listing Miami, Florida Atlantic, Temple and others.

Newark, Ohio, quarterback Kaleb Jarrett is a 6-foot-1, 200-pound quarterback with a strong arm, while Libertyville, Ill., standout Jack Ruskell also made a solid showing. Ruskell's father, Tim, is a scout with the Tennessee Titans.

A solid prospect from the 2018 QBs at the camp was Jakeb Lewis of Licking Valley, Ohio, while Christian Academy standout Austin Carr was the most impressive prospect from the 2019 class.

The QB Academy continues on Wednesday.
