Neil Caudle talks about Louisville camp

Quarterback Neil Caudle, a member of the South Hot 100, camped at Louisville this past weekend. The Hoover, Alabama prospect spoke with about his experience at Louisville, his favorites and more.

For quarterback Neil Caudle, a member of the just released South Hot 100, the remaining weeks of June will include camps at Auburn and Michigan. However, the camp schedule for the 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback began this past weekend at Louisville's QB/WR camp.

"I loved it," Caudle told Inside The Ville on Tuesday afternoon. "I kept hearing how everything was so new up there and that they are building a new indoor facility. I liked it."

With a host of talented quarterbacks participating in Bobby Petrino's camp, Caudle felt that he turned a decent performance, but not his best.

"I thought I did alright," he said of his U of L camp performance. "I did better in the afternoon session, but I probably still could have done better."

Caudle, who despite missing five games as a junior, tossed for 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns, completing 65 percent of his attempts. He also rushed for 424 yards on 43 carries with five touchdowns and was named the team's Offensive Back of the Year.

"I can balance it out throwing the ball and running with it," he explained. "I'd say my stronger points are running the ball and in the short game."

While in Louisville, the quarterback visited with head coach Bobby Petrino, quarterbacks coach Jeff Brohm and recruiting coordinator Joe Whitt Jr., all of whom left a strong impression.

"We talked about Louisville and what they are expecting to do," said Caudle, who on Tuesday was invited to the EA Sports Elite 11 quarterback's camp. "They have the number one offense in the nation, have great coaching and the whole town seems to be into the football team."

Caudle, who described the recruiting process as hectic, but enjoyable, also informed Inside The Ville that he has recently narrowed his list of schools down to five.

"I've narrowed it down a little bit," Caudle said. "In no particular order I like Louisville, Michigan, Auburn, Miami and LSU."

As for a timeline on his decision?

"I could do before the season just to get it out of the way, but after going to camps I might just wait and see what happens."

He also gave rave reviews for a fellow U of L camper, receiver Tim Hawthorne.

"He was hands down the best wide receiver there. I've played against him since the 7th grade and he is one of the best there is."
