Luck has a lot of skill

It's easy to say that one of the more followed stories of the year of a recruit from Texas will be Andrew Luck. Luck has an offer list that is now in the double-digits and has made the trip to Texas for a junior day only to not receive a Longhorn offer. While that offer wasn't expected by Luck, he still isn't tipping his hand about who he is thinking about or might visit next.

Things just couldn't be much better for Andrew Luck right now. The big-time quarterback from Houston (Texas) Stratford is having a good semester and recruiting is really beginning to pick up.

"The semester is going good," Luck said. "Recruiting is going good. I am still trying to sort everything out."

That sorting out will include a couple of new names. Recently, Luck picked up two more offers to bring his count now into the double-digits.

"I got a couple of more offers recently. They're from LSU and Arizona. That makes about 10 or 12. I don't know."

One offer that was anticipated by most, but not expected by Luck, was from Texas. Luck visited Austin, but didn't leave with an offer.

"They've got good quarterbacks and I didn't expect an offer. It really did not surprise me. They are a great college. I didn't expect one."

While Luck was able to make that trip to Austin he has yet to decide on any other trips. Much of that will depend on his summer schedule with passing league.

"I haven't really thought about that yet. I still have to look at my seven on seven schedule. I know that I am going to visit some camps."

"I am really not sure which ones. It will really be just the standard recruiting trip during the summer. The spring I have football and I really not going to worry about anything."

"I might try and go to one or two combines if they are around the Houston area. I really don't want to have to drive or fly somewhere to go to a combine. I don't know."

With offers in hand, Luck won't stop working to become a better player and college prospect. He knows what he needs to work on and he knows how much better he can become because of it.

"I am working on my footwork. I know that I have to improve and I understand. I know how much better I could be if I improved that part of my game."

Last year, Luck has a great year at Stratford throwing for almost 3,000 yards. He picked up some great honors too for being just a junior in one of the more competitive districts and areas for Texas high school football.

"These aren't accurate, I threw for around 2,900 yards, 27 touchdowns and I am not sure on the attempts or completions. I got the offensive MVP on my team, MVP in 19-5A (district) and I think that I got some second team, all-greater Houston area."

One of the teams to offer Luck early was Nebraska. Luck hasn't seen Nebraska before, but he knew quite a bit about them already.

"They've got great tradition at Nebraska. The have the Sea of Red in Memorial Stadium. They get 60,000+ for a spring game so you know that there is something special there. It's a good place and great tradition."

Nebraska falls into the big bucket of recruiting that isn't getting a lot of attention yet from Luck. "I don't know. I haven't really thought about it. Coach Shawn Watson has been the coach that has been recruiting me."
