Texas Star Verbals To Louisville

What’s going on here? Luke Woodley, a highly regarded quarterback prospect from Texas, has committed to play with Steve Kragthorpe and the University of Louisville football team.

From all indications, Woodley’s verbal is a nice recruiting get for Kragthorpe. The quarterback from Highland Park High in Dallas put up some phenomenal numbers during his junior season last year, completing 265 of 409 passes for a 64.8 percentile, good for 41 touchdowns. His longest scoring pass play was 76 yards.

They play real football in Texas, and he led his team to an 11-2 won-lost record. Hey, he even seems to have good speed, too. Been a while.

Here’s a highlight clip:

    there are 100 3 star QB’s out there right now in recruiting land–and 119 Div I schools. We have some 3-star QB’s on our roster right now.

    They are more common than you think…

    Now, 3 -star O linemen…like the newest likely pick-up…now, that gets my attention–some

    But…the proof will be in the W-L pudding…

    Good to know we can still beat out teams like Akron, San Diego St and Ball St on the recruiting trail. Can’t wait to hear Krag’s excuse on why it isn’t his fault these kids can’t compete in the Big East. “It’s all on me”… Ha!

    There were most of the Texas universities interested in Luke, as well as Kansas and Missouri. If he has the expected big senior season all are predicting, we’ll have to work hard to keep him to the verbal, IMHO.
