Joei Fiegler schedules unofficial visit to UofL

Alcoa (TN) High School quarterback Joei Fielger has yet to receive an offer from Louisville, but the lefty told that after speaking with two Cardinal coaches on Wednesday, that he'll make the drive north to the River City for an unofficial visit next week.

It's been a busy few weeks for high school quarterbacks around the region, as a number of them have announced their college decisions. By the end of the week, the top three quarterback prospects in the Bluegrass State - Brian Anderson, Justin Burke and Will Fidler - will all have made a verbal commitment. However, despite the recent rush of commitments, the Louisville coaching staff still has a number of it's top quarterback prospects still available, including Mitch Mustain and Tim Tebow.

Meanwhile, Alcoa (TN) High School quarterback Joei Fiegler, who turned in a solid outing at U of L's QB/WR camp in early June, has kept in frequent contact with a few coaching staffs and has found that their interest has increased.

"North Carolina State and Louisville are really hitting me hard right now," he said on Wednesday. "I actually talked to Coach Brohm and Coach Levine earlier today."

While the Wolfpack and the Cardinals appear to be expressing the most interest in the lefty at the moment, neither have extended scholarship offers.

"Both of them found me kind of late and after they had offered a couple other guys," said Fiegler, who holds an offer from Vanderbilt and is also drawing interest from Indiana, North Carolina and Southern Miss. "North Carolina State actually told me that if they don't get Burke that they were going to offer me."

With school already underway, Fiegler doesn't hesitate when asked when he'd like to make his decision.

"I've been back to school for three weeks already and our first game is coming up quick," said Fiegler, who claims U of L and NC State as his leaders. "I'd like to do it before the season starts, so I can focus on that. I can't go wrong either way, both are great schools."

With a possible decision looming, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Fiegler will make another unofficial visit to Louisville.

"Coach Brohm asked me if I'd like to come up for the fan day on August 13th and watch them practice, so I'll probably be coming up to see that," he said.

Fiegler, who completed 20-of-29 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in the Tennessee 2A State Championship last fall, will open the season against Hopkinsville in Integra Bowl at Trigg County on August 19th.
