With Wisconsin sending out invites to linemen from all over the Midwest to participate at its first high school summer camp Sunday, Wichita (KA) Maize South junior Jeremy Luck was one of the several prospects who walked away impressed with his day.
“I am pretty much just playing to see where I was at and competing against some pretty darn good kids,” Luck told BadgerNation. “The (linemen) were pretty talented. I liked the group. They pushed me a lot.”
Working with offensive coordinator/line coach Joe Rudolph for the first time, the 6-5, 290-pound Luck gave Rudolph high reviews for his teaching techniques and his energy. The compliments went both ways.
“They liked my effort a lot,” said Luck. “That’s something I definitely pride myself on. I have been working a lot on my footwork, getting quicker and staying low. I definitely could tell that it showed a lot (Sunday).”
It was Luck’s first trip up to the campus, which also left him satisfied.
“I’d say I was impressed,” said Luck. “I liked how big everything is and that it is Wisconsin.”
In addition to Wisconsin, Luck said he’s getting the most interest from Air Force, Illinois, Northwestern, Northern Iowa and Southeast Missouri State. While he still without a scholarship, Luck feels similar camp performances like the one he had in Madison will lead to more opportunities.
