Louisville lands commitment from Texas QB

Louisville hosted 2010 Dallas (TX) Highland Park gun-slinger Luke Woodley on an unofficial visit this week. Before Woodley returned home, the 6-3, 195-pound quarterback gave Louisville some very good news.

Luke Woodley thought there was a strong chance he'd commit to Louisville during his unofficial visit this week.

After spending two days visiting with the Louisville coaching staff, meeting with academic advisors and touring campus facilities, Woodley told UofL head coach Steve Kragthorpe during a meeting early Wednesday evening that he intends to play football for the Cardinals in 2010.

"Yes, it's (official)," Woodley informed InsideTheVille.com via a text message just before flying out of Louisville Wednesday evening.

One of the most prolific passers in the southwest, Woodley threw for 3,756 yards and 41 touchdowns as a junior. He led his high school team to an 11-2 record while completing .648 percent of his passes. An accurate passer, Woodley threw just six interceptions in 409 attempts.

Those numbers caught the attention of the Louisville coaching staff, who invited Woodley to camp last month. Shortly after an impressive camp performance, the Cardinals offered Woodley a scholarship.

"I think I'm more of a pro-style guy. I like to drop-back and sling it like most quarterbacks do," said Woodley. "I think I can fit there (Louisville) pretty well. They run that pro-style offense and Coach Kragthorpe knows offense. We're a spread-offensive team at Highland Park and it would just be an easy transition."

Woodley, who attends the same high school as Matthew Stafford, the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, also had a scolarship offer from San Diego State.
