Trickett talks Louisville camp experience

Tallahassee (FL) North Florida Christian star Clint Trickett is considered to the top 2010 quarterback in Florida's Class of 2010. The three-star prospect rated the No. 38 quarterback nationally was in Louisville Sunday attending the Cardinals football camp. Trickett spoke to InsideTheVille.com about the experience.

"It was pretty good," Clint Trickett said. "I'd been up here one time (before) and got to see the campus so I was more familiar with stuff. I got to know the coaches a little bit better this time."

Trickett was one of more than two dozen quarterbacks on hand at Louisville's camp that got to work out with head coach Steve Kragthorpe and quarterback coach Matt Wells. During camp, Trickett, 6-2, 180, demonstrated some of the best footwork and one of the better arms in drills.

"There were two practice sessions and I got to learn a lot from Coach Kragthorpe and Coach Wells," said Trickett. "There were some other good quarterbacks out there and it was fun to compete with them."

Trickett currently holds offers from Louisville, Arkansas, Tulsa and Western Kentucky. He'll spend this month participating in several one-day camps in hopes of landing a few more BCS offers. "I'll be going to Georgia June 13th, then to Auburn June 14th and Florida June 16th," Trickett said.

The Cardinals and Razorbacks currently stand out on Trickett's list of favorites. "Louisville and Arkansas are right there at the top and they're both great schools," Trickett said. "Louisville has a lot going for them. Coach Kragthorpe is going to get this thing turned around soon and they are headed in the right direction. I'm definitely interested in (Louisville)."

Trickett arrived a few hours before camp began Sunday afternoon and had an opportunity to spend time reviewing film with Kragthorpe and Wells in the UofL football complex. "We got in about three hours before the camp (started) and I was with (Kragthorpe) and Coach Wells in the film room for all three hours going over the offense," Trickett said. "It was a good."

Though Trickett holds two BCS offers, he said he's not planning to make a college decision this summer. "Right now I'm planning to take my official visits during the season and check out what other schools have to offer," Trickett said. "I'm not going to commit before the season. I think it's just when you feel most comfortable with the school. You can't really set a date."
