A notebook of items from the University of Louisville's football camp - Light Up The Ville - on Friday night; several top prospects updated

Here's a Cardinal Authority notebook of recruiting-related items from the University of Louisville's football camp on Friday night. The Cardinals had more than 90 prospects attend the Light Up The Ville event.

Top RB still looking for an offer

Former Kentucky commitment and three-star running back Michael Warren made the trip to Louisville's Light Up The Ville Camp on Friday night in hopes of earning a scholarship offer from the Cardinals.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Warren said the coaches told him they would be in contact, but he noted there's a lot of reasons for him to be confident after his performance in front of U of L running backs coach Kolby Smith.

"I think I did great," Warren said. "It was the best camp of my career."

Warren was committed to Kentucky for 10 months before backing out of the commitment earlier this spring. The star from Toldeo, Ohio, Central Catholic holds offers from UK, Boston College, Iowa State, Rutgers, Iowa and Toledo among a few others.

As a sophomore, Warren rushed for 2,200 yards and 28 touchdowns and followed that up last season with 2,475 yards and 31 touchdowns.


Three-star Georgia LB impressed

Lawrenceville, Ga., Archer linebacker Quinton Miller performed well at camp on Friday night and said he hopes his offer is coming soon from the Cardinals' defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.

"I think I did very well," Miller said. "I talked to coach Grantham after and he said that there are a few people he wants to see on campus before he extends on offer my way."

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Miller already has offers from Cincinnati, Central Florida and Mercer and is hearing from a lot of other schools, including Virginia, Georgia and Wisconsin.

He's ranked as the No. 57 inside linebacker in the country.


California QB impressive in drills

Merced, Calif., quarterback Jake Foss came a long way for the U of L camp and he was impressive.

The 6-foot, 175-pound Foss, who was evaluated at a recent satellite camp by the U of L staff, showed great arm strength and touch in the drills Nick Petrino put the quarterbacks through on Friday night.

"I thought I preformed well," Foss said. "I liked how the coaches taught me some new things. The coaches also just told me that they will continue to evaluate me in the recruiting process. I really like the coaches at Louisville and I liked the campus."

Foss said his recruitment is wide open at the moment.


Local hoping to stick out

DeSales High School cornerback James Tobin was one of the elite prospects at Louisville camp in early June and was asked to attend the Friday Night event by the staff after that performance.

And the 6-foot, 175-pound Tobin didn't disappoint.

Tobin, who played last season at St. Xavier, was solid in 7-o-n-7 and said he's hoping the staff took notice.

"I think I did really well," Tobin said. "I only had one ball caught on me the entire day. I've been told (by the coaches) that I'm on the verge of getting offered and I'm getting evaluated heavily."

Tobin currently has offers from Morehead State and Lindsey Wilson.
