QB Tyler Bass set for Thursday visit

Tyler Bass, a Scout.com three-star quarterback from Stockbridge, Georgia, will be in the stands when the Cardinals host Rutgers on Thursday night. Bass spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his upcoming trip and more.

With a scholarship offer list that includes East Carolina, Indiana, Louisville, Memphis, Purdue, Southern Miss and Western Kentucky, quarterback Tyler Bass has began to take a closer look at the schools that are working to gain his services.

Rated as the nation's No.46 signal-caller and a three-star prospect by Scout.com, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Bass will trip to Louisville for an unofficial visit on Thursday.

"I'm going to Louisville tomorrow for their game against Rutgers," Bass told InsideTheVille.com on Wednesday. "I've also visited Western Kentucky and Southern Miss unofficially."

During his time in the Derby City, Bass, who has yet to schedule any of his official visits, is looking forward to meeting members of the team and how they interact with the coaching staff in the season's final home game.

"I want to see what the players are like, their work ethic, how the coaches are and really just the overall feel of the place," he explained. "I know that they have been down this year, so I want to see if the coaches can motivate them to play in their last game."

The down year that the defending Big East and Orange Bowl champions are experiencing won't be a concern for the Stockbridge, Georgia prospect when it comes to decision time.

"That won't effect my decision at all," he said. "A lot of good teams have a year like that when they get a new coach because they have to get their own players and system in."

Last month Bass told InsideTheVille.com that while the U of L staff offered him as an athlete, that they give him an opportunity to play quarterback should be choose to become a Cardinal.

"I really want to play quarterback," said Bass, who stays in frequent contact with assistant Tony Alford. "He said I could play quarterback up there. That's another reason that I want to come up for a visit. I want to talk to the coach in person about playing quarterback there."

A decision from Bass isn't expected during his Thursday visit.

"I'm still open and looking at all my options right now."
