This morning, the Louisville Quarterback Club named Trinity wide receiver James Quick the recipient of the Paul Hornung Award, given annually to Kentucky’s top high school football player.
With 280 receptions, Quick is the all-time leading receiver in Kentucky high school football history and is the only Kentucky high school player to play on both football and basketball state championship teams in the same season. He is also the defending state champion and record holder in the 200-meter dash. In 2012, he racked up 85 receptions for 1,413 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Kentucky recently became a serious player in Quick’s recruitment after Neal Brown paid him a visit on Tuesday. As a result, Quick announced that he will take one of his official visits to Kentucky. This weekend, Quick will visit Louisville, considered by many to be his favorite, along with Ohio State. Quick will also visit Oregon and Tennessee, and will announce his decision on television during the US Army All-American Bowl on January 5th.
If Stoops were to land Quick (a long shot, for sure), would is be one of the biggest coups in recent UK football history?
