"If I had to commit today..."

While he has no plans on making an early decision, Stockbridge, Ga. quarterback Tyler Bass, who attended Louisville's Junior Day, says that one school has an early lead. InsideTheVille.com has the latest, including junior season hightlights.

"I've visited Western Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Louisville, South Carolina, Wake Forest and North Carolina," said Stockbridge, Ga. quarterback Tyler Bass. "I have offers from Air Force, Indiana, Purdue and Western Kentucky right now. It‘s nice to have people wanting you to come play football for them, because not everybody gets that opportunity, so it‘s an honor really."

The multi-threat quarterback has kept busy visiting schools that have shown an early interest over the past few weeks. The 6-foot-3, 207-pounder was among the many that attended Louisville's junior day earlier this month and strengthened a building relationship with Cardinal assistant Tony Alford.

"That was real nice," Bass told InsideTheVille.com. "Coach Alford is a great guy. He told me that the whole staff wants to see me throw the ball live. I really like how Coach Alford speaks from the heart and that he's not one of those coaches that is going to tell you something that you want to hear. I like the family type values that he holds."

As a junior, Bass proved to be one of Georgia's top quarterback prospects, throwing for 1,190 yards and 16 touchdowns, with just 2 interceptions. He also rushed for an additional 595 yards and 6 touchdowns 91 attempts.

QB Tyler Bass will camp at Louisville in early June
On Sunday, June 3, Bass will have an opportunity to display his abilities in person to Cardinal's head coach Steve Kragthorpe at U of L's quarterback/wide receiver camp.

"I'm definitely planning on going to Louisville's quarterback camp," Bass said. "Mainly because they want to see me throw in person, so I plan on going up there again for that."

Likely not to make his college choice until "after the season," Bass does admit that his recent trips have helped a few schools to climb to the top of his early list of favorites, including two programs in the Bluegrass State.

"I'm going to take my time and take my official visits before I make a decision, but I do like Louisville a lot," Bass said. "I told my coach the other day that if I had to commit today I would probably commit to Louisville. I also like UNC a lot and I liked Western Kentucky too. I know that Western is a small school, but they are making a big jump and I liked their coach and how they are doing things there."
