Cards "#1" for Tennessee QB

Aloca, Tennessee quarterback Joei Feigler currently holds an offer from Vanderbilt, but he wasn't shy in telling Inside the Ville that Louisville was his current clear leader.

Aloca (TN) High School's Joei Feigler is believed to be one of the best, if not the best, quarterback in the state of Tennessee and the 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect has picked up his first offer, with hopes of more on the way.

"This is the most exciting thing I've done," Feigler said of the recruiting process. "There is something about every school that I like. Things are really looking good for me."

He currently holds a scholarship offer from Vanderbilt, but has noticed increased attention from a number of the bigger programs in the country.

"I talked to Coach Levine from Louisville just the other day and I talked to Coach Bobo from Georgia recently," Feigler explained. "LSU and North Carolina have also called."

A left-hander that is more comfortable in the pocket, Feigler tossed for 2,418 yards and 28 touchdowns his junior year, which culminated with the winning of the Class 2A State Championship.

"Being left-handed is one thing that coaches like about me a lot," he said. "I am more of a pocket passer, but I have mobility. Most people don't know that about me, but I can run as well."

Feigler will have an opportunity to display those skills when he attends Louisville's camp in June.

"They said that they wanted to see me at their camp before they would offer," said Feigler, who participated at the combine in Georgia earlier this spring. "Coach Levine asked if I could come up a day early so I could look around the facilities, so I'll probably do that."

Feigler, who grew up a fan of Georgia, says that his list of favorites include Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. However despite not having an offer yet from the school, one does have a clear lead for his services.

"Louisville is number one, without a doubt," Feigler said. "Even without them offering yet they are number one. They are going to the Big East and will play for a BCS championship."

"I thought that they should've been undefeated last year," he continued. "Louisville's crowd support, especially for a school that was in Conference USA last year, is very impressive."

Feigler also explained that there are a lot of similarities between the offense he runs at Alcoa High School, to that employed at Louisville.

"They have a very similar style of offense to ours. That's one of the things that I really like about Louisville."

With high expectations of leading his school to a second straight state crown this fall, Feigler admits that an early commitment may happen.

"I really want to commit early, so I can focus on my season," he said. "We have a lot guys coming back, so we want to repeat as champions."
