Trinity standout James Quick has reportedly narrowed his list of colleges down to UofL and Ohio State. Quick visited the Buckeyes over the weekend and obviously came away impressed, but not so much so as to commit during the visit, which Urban Meyer certainly must have hoped for.
Though he said he's down to two, Quick is still interested in the Oregon Ducks and is planning to visit Eugene over the summer. So make of that what you will, but since Quick's heartstrings are apparently being tugged by his hometown school, Oregon would seem to be a long shot, literally.
So it's still likely to come down to UofL and Ohio State, the Urban Meyer mentor versus the Charlie Strong pupil. The Cards are still in fine shape to land him.
If Teddy Bridgewater's commitment was the first watershed "event" of the Strong Era that proved UofL was back on the right trajectory, then retaining James Quick would be the second, the sign that the Cards have entered Phase Two of the rebuilding project. Winning a head to head battle against a blueblood like Ohio State for one of the top talents to come out of Louisville since Bush and Brohm would send a powerful message to anyone paying attention.
Since he's a three-sport athlete, a busy kid still interested in taking at least one more visit, I wouldn't expect a commitment anytime soon. But the longer this drags out, the better I believe the Cards chances are.
