U of L 7-on-7 Notebook

Approximately 400 athletes from Kentucky, Indiana and Pennsylvania arrived at the University of Louisville football complex on Saturday morning to participate in the program's annual 7-on-7 passing tournament. InsideTheVille.com has plenty news and notes from the days event...

33 teams from Kentucky, Indiana and Pennsylvania descended on the University of Louisville football complex on Saturday for the program's annual 7-on-7 passing tournament. There was quite a collection of talent, including a pair that currently hold scholarship offers from U of L, among the approximately 400 athletes participating in the day long event.

Lexington Henry Clay receiver Aaron Boyd passed the eye test immediately and performed well throughout the day. The 6-foot-5, 195-pounder, who also clocked time playing defense, proved to have the physical tools and a talent for catching difficult passes, further proving that he's a future college standout. However, due to his already physical stature, which will only continue to improve, one has to wonder if Boyd may develop into a serious tight end threat on the college level. The Scout.com three-star prospect currently holds a dozen scholarship offers and lists Florida, Louisville, Miami, Tennessee and Virginia as schools of high interest.

6-foot-1, 190-pound Chris Hayden-Martin of Greensburg Central Catholic, who has already collected more than 20 scholarship offers, including one from Louisville, has the look of a cornerback that could challenge for early playing time at a major Division I program. As his offer sheet that continues to grow, Hayden-Martin has yet to start narrowing his list. Boston College, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisville and Pittsburgh are a few of the schools that seem to hover near the top of his ever-growing list of options.

University of Louisville quarterback commit Tino Sunseri was also on-hand on Saturday. The Pennsylvania prospect came to town for an unofficial visit and was spotted taking in some of the action, as well as chatting with a number of Cardinal assistants. I know that there have been questions about his height and I can attest that the reported 6-foot-1 appears to accurate.

E.J. Riley will participate in Sunday's QB/WR camp
Sunseri also spent some time visiting with another non-participating visitor on Saturday afternoon in E.J. Riley of Portage (Mich.) Central. Riley, a 6-foot, 185-pound receiver who is town for the U of L QB/WR camp, was recently listed among the Top 100 prospects in Michigan by MichiganVarsity.com.

"He's one of the true sleepers in the state," said Allen Trieu of MichiganVarsity.com. "He has the disadvantage of playing for a running team, but he makes the most of every opportunity he gets. He's a nice sized kid who is athletic and does the little things well, like run block and run clean routes."

U of L basketball assistant strength coach Ellis Myles was on the sidelines watching his nephew, J-town cornerback Darius Ash. The senior-to-be performed well, coming up with an interception and a few touchdown receptions.

In-state schools participating were: Ballard, Belfry, Bullitt East, Eastern, Elizabethtown, Eminence, Fern Creek, Franklin County, Henry Clay, Holy Cross, Jeffersontown, Lexington Catholic, Male, Manual, Moore, Owen County, Owensboro Catholic, St. Xavier and Shawnee. Jeffersonville, New Albany and Reitz represented Indiana. Greensburg Central Catholic came in from Pennsylvania.

U of L also conducted it's lineman camp on Saturday, with more than 100 prospects participating.
