Quick's Visit Pulls Buckeyes Even

Ohio State had an impressive cast of visitors in attendance for last weekend's 63-38 romp over Nebraska. One of the more heralded recruits was five-star wide receiver James Quick, of Louisville Trinity. How was the visit, and did it change things for Ohio State?

Trinity High School standout senior wide receiver James Quick said he was "really impressed," on his unofficial visit to Ohio State this weekend.

Quick, a five-star wide receiver for the Shamrocks, had been to Columbus, Ohio, for the spring game but was making his first trip to Ohio Stadium for a regular-season game. He watched the Buckeyes roll over Nebraska on Saturday night.

"It was so loud in there I could hardly hear myself think," Quick said. "I couldn't even talk to (teammate Reggie Bonnafon), it was so loud.

"There were a lot of people in (the stadium). It was very exciting."

Quick has been to three home games at Louisville and said he's going to make a trip to Oregon sometime this season but that "I haven't set up a date yet."

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Quick has also said he's still considering Kentucky, Tennessee and Cincinnati.

But in an interview last weekend, Quick said Louisville was "at the top" and noted the hometown Cardinals were "in the lead" for his services.

Now, that seems to have changed.

"Yes, this definitely helps (Ohio State) out a lot," Quick said. "I really liked it there, the atmosphere and everything. I would say that puts them up there with Louisville. They're now sitting right there at the top with Louisville."

Quick has helped Trinity to back-to-back Class 6-A state titles in Kentucky and a 32-game winning streak. As a senior, Quick already has 61 catches for 1,020 yards and 10 touchdowns in seven games.

For his career, Quick currently ranked No. 2 in career receptions in state history. He's fourth in all-time receiving yards and touchdown catches.
