Looking for Some Luck?

After Jermie Calhoun received word that Texas was not going to recruit him, the talk among Longhorn fans shifted to whether the coaches would offer a quarterback in the class of 2008. Houston Stratford's Andrew Luck was thought to be the prime target. Luck was in Austin Saturday for Texas' second junior day. Did he come away with an offer?

Longhorn fans may have gotten their answer to the quarterback inquiry yesterday when Andrew Luck was not offered a scholarship. However, Luck had nothing but good things to say and the campus and city in Austin.

"It's a very nice place. It was awesome. It's a great city," Luck said. "Everything is first rate. They have great facilities. It's a really nice place."

"We toured the facilities and watched a little bit of practice. The coaches and players talked a bit," Luck said. "They talked about what type of players they wanted and what type of offensive style they use, just standard stuff."

Luck's trip to UT will probably be his last junior day visit.

"I think they are starting to wrap up. I don't want to travel far, so probably not," Luck said.

Luck currently holds scholarship offers from Northwestern, Purdue, Texas A&M, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Duke. He is still wide open as far as recruiting goes.

"I'm still very open right now," Luck said when asked if he had a favorite.

Luck passed for over 2,900 yards and 27 touchdowns in his junior season at Stratford. He was recently ranked the top signal caller in the pre-evaluation Texas Top 100.
