Oregon QB enjoys Louisville camp

Jack Lomax knows a thing or two about college camps. Sunday, the talented quarterback came all the way from Lake Oswego, Oregon to attend Louisville's senior development camp and try to earn a scholarship offer from the Cardinals.

Jack Lomax has been well-traveled this summer, attending camps throughout the west. He's been to Oregon, California, Arizona State and Oregon State and compared Louisville's camp favorably with those west coast programs.

"It was very similar to the other camps I've attended. Actually, I liked it quite a lot," Lomax said. "There were quite a few people there – the same as Oregon State and all the other camps. So I was kind of used to it. We got into groups, threw a couple routes – one on one's and it was really good. It was a good camp."

Lomax, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound quarterback, said there were about "15 to 20 quarterbacks" in camp.

"Camp started a little late," Lomax explained. "It was supposed to start at 1 but it didn't start until 1:40. We got into stretching groups by skill positions to start. Then the quarterbacks warmed up throwing to each other. Then we started getting into five-step drops and started to throw with the receivers. We threw all the routes – hitch, outs, 14-yard comebacks, posts…Then the DB's came over and we ran one on one's."

Lomax, the son of former NFL quarterback Neil Lomax, threw for more than 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns – with just two interceptions – as a junior. He said Louisville had an impressive group of wide receivers at their elite camp on Sunday.

"We had a good group of receivers," Lomax said. "They ran good routes and they were all really athletic. There were also a couple of good DB's that were really athletic. The receivers I thought were very, very good."

Before camp, Lomax was pulled aside by offensive coordinator Jeff Brohm, who expressed Louisville's interest.

"Jeff was the guy and the head coach would come over every now and then. It was good," Lomax said. "Coach (Ron) English is my recruiting coordinator and he told me that Coach Brohm wanted to talk to me before camp. So we stepped outside and talked about my summer, what I've been doing and what kind of schools are looking at me. He told me that they were interested in me. After the camp he told me again they were interested but that they were just going to have to wait (to offer)."

Lomax has an offer from Portland State, his father's alma mater.
