Jaret Pallotta was a record-setting quarterback at Massillon (Oh.) Jackson last fall

Masillon, Oh., quarterback prospect Jaret Pallotta discusses his Louisville Junior Day experience

Massillon (Oh.) Jackson's Jaret Pallotta was one of three quarterbacks to attend Louisville's recent Junior Day and he left with a better understanding of what the program has to offer.

During his stay, Pallotta joined other prospects in touring the program's facilities, meeting with coaches and was in attendance for the school's basketball victory over Virginia Tech at the KFC Yum! Center.

"It went very well," he said.  "The basketball game was a great atmosphere and the facilities were incredible."

Pallotta joined fellow quarterback's Kolbe Langhi and John Holcombe while visiting with Nick Petrino, the Cardinals position coach.

"It was me and two other quarterbacks," he said.  "Coach Nick Petrino was being more general talking about route concepts and schemes with us, rather than specific interest."

Already in possession of a scholarship offer from Eastern Kentucky, recruiting interest is now rising for Pallotta, who also recently visited Toledo.

"It is a lot of fun," he said of the recruiting process.  "It is really starting to pick up.  Had a great visit at the Toledo junior day and was contacted by Purdue last week. I also continue to get a lot of contact from Mac and Ivy League schools."

As a junior, the 6-foot-5 Pallotta threw for 18 touchdowns with a school record 2,041 yards to earn All-League, All-County and All NEO Inland District honors.


Also a standout guard on the hardwood for Jackson, Pallotta currently has no additional visit plans, but will get busy working in front of college coaches during the spring and summer months.

"Nothing really as of now, my basketball team is about to start what I hope to be a deep tournament run which should take us to the end of March," he explained. "I am planning on hitting the camp season very hard this spring."
