Prospect Video: Tim Hawthorne

Wide receiver Tim Hawthorne, who currently holds 13 offers - including one from the Cardinals coaching staff - will participate in the upcoming University of Louisville Quarterback/Receivers camp.

One of the rewards of being able to boast of having the nation's most productive offense is that when you conduct camps during the offseason that a number of highly sought-after prospects from around the country make an effort to attend.

Tim Hawthorne of Homewood High School in Alabama is one such prospect. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound receiver already holds the season and career receiving records at Homewood, which includes 84 catches for 1,360 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior.

Hawthorne, who received an offer from Louisville weeks ago, recently spoke with Scott Kennedy of Scout.com and updated his current list of scholarship offers.

"I'm up to 13 offers now," said Tim Hawthorne. "I received an offer from Clemson about a week ago. I received an offer from Arkansas last Thursday, and I received an offer from Florida on Sunday night. I have now received an offer from every school in the SEC, except Kentucky."

Kennedy, who saw Hawthorne upclose at the Inaugural Kennedy/CES Southern Invitational combine, describes him as a gifted receiver who strives to continually improve.

"He uses his size to his advantage extremely well in traffic, and he has quick feet to make the first man miss after a catch. He is an extremely hard worker and strives to get better and better."

U of L head coach Bobby Petrino, as well as his brother and offensive coordinator/receivers coach Paul Petrino, will have an opportunity to further evaluate Hawthorne at the Cardinals June 5th Quarterback/Receivers camp.

"I am definitely going to Florida, Louisville, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Tennessee, and Georgia. Those are the only camps I have lined up right now, but I will try to attend a few more. I just want to go out to these camps, and impress all the coaches," he said.
