Christian Mathews, a three-star quarterback from Arlington (TX) Bowie, plans to camp at Louisville next month. Shortly after visiting Louisville, the athletic 6-foot-3 Matthews plans to make his college decision.

"He's going up to Louisville for their camp June 7 or 8," Bowie coach Kenny Perry said. "I think they're up at the top of his list. Obviously he'd be crazy if they weren't one of his top schools. I know they've got a pretty good guy coming back but Christian's a weapon. I'm not sure how they would use him but I think he'll fit in wherever he goes."

Perry said Houston and Tulsa are still in the mix with Matthews, who led Bowie to a 12-2 record. As a junior, Matthews completed 171 of 278 passes 2,170 yards (62 percent) and 20 touchdowns. He also rushed for 442 yards and six touchdowns.

"He's going to make his decision sometime this summer," Perry said. "He'll probably make his decision after he goes and sees Louisville. He's been everywhere that he wants to see. Louisville is the only camp he'll go to this summer."
