REPORT: Louisville football camp

Louisville hosted its final Senior Development camp of the summer Sunday afternoon at PJCS. While a couple hundred prospects attended the Cardinals last camp session, no one turned in a more impressive effort than a talented defensive back from Gaithersburg, Maryland. has the scoop.

Axel Ofori, a 5-11, 190-pound cornerback from Gaithersburg, Maryland, was easily one of the best performers at Louisville's Senior Development camp Sunday at the PJCS football complex.

Louisville was the first school to offer Ofori this past spring and it's easy to see why the Cardinals are interested in the Gaithersburg (MD) defensive back. Ofori displayed great speed and cover ability on Sunday, sticking closely with wide receivers and batting down passes in the secondary.

Another impressive defensive back at Louisville's camp was Kyron Tucker, an athletic and speedy 6-0, 175-pound cornerback from Memphis (TN) Ridgeway. Tucker holds an offer from Memphis and is sure to have caught Louisville's attention during camp workouts with his size, speed and cover skills.

Avery Cunningham, a 6-0, 185-pound safety from Cincinnati (OH) Winton Woods, also was impressive during wide receiver/defensive back drills. According to Cunningham's high school, Mike Middleton, the standout defensive back has a pending scholarship offer from Louisville.

Several of Cunningham's teammates from Winton Woods high school also attended Louisville's final camp this summer, including wide receiver Juan Glover and linebacker Chuck Winn. Glover was one of the more impressive wide receivers in camp, making several athletic receptions under tight coverage.

Arsenio Favor

Dominic Davis, a swift 5-8, 180-pound running back from Lowndes (GA), impressed with his speed and hands out of the backfield.

On the quarterback front, Arsenio Favor, a 6-2, 215-pound quarterback from Millbrook (AL) Stanhope Elmore, was one of the most impressive quarterbacks at Louisville's camp. Favor, who holds scholarship offers from Southern Miss and Arkansas State, threw for 1,600 yards and 16 touchdowns (he also had six rushing TD's) as a junior.

Rodney Davis, a teammate of Favor, also attended the Louisville camp. Davis, a 6-foot, 192-pound wide receiver, currently has offers from Troy, Clemson, Samford, Arkansas State and Southern Mississippi. Davis, who runs a 4.41 40-yard dash, had 600 receiving yards and nine TD's as a junior.

Another quarterback in attendance, Joey Windler from Marietta (GA) Walton, made a solid showing. The 6-2, 180-pound Windler runs a sub-4.5 forty yard dash and has Louisville in his top five. Windler played wide receiver as a junior last season and is still awaiting his first scholarship offer. Logan Moore, a 6-0, 185-pound quarterback from Fairmont (WV), also participated in camp. Moore was a second team Class AAA all-state selection last season as a junior.

Lexington (KY) Christian quarterback Lucas Whitt also participated in camp as did high school teammate wide receiver Brandon Burdett.

Harris Bivin, a 2010 Louisville offensive lineman commit from Owensboro (KY) Apollo, was also expected to attend camp.

One interesting note, Louisville (KY) Seneca offensive coordinator Paul Holien worked with the quarterbacks during camp. Holien is the coach of top 2011 Louisville QB prospect DaMarcus Smith. Smith recently picked up an offer from Tennessee but the Cardinals and Illinois still appear the two frontrunners in Smith's recruitment.
