Arguably, the crown jewel of Louisville’s 2015 recruiting haul is 4-star QB Lamar Jackson.  The Boynton Beach product figures to be in the mix for the starting job once fall camp begins in August.  UofL held off a strong push from Florida and a late pitch from Mississippi State to secure his signature yesterday.  The C-J’s Steve Jones broke down where he fits in and his chances to start for the Cards at some point next season.

Three of them — Will Gardner, Reggie Bonnafon and Kyle Bolin — each started at least once last season, and they’ll all be back for the 2015 season. A fourth, Tyler Ferguson, transferred from Penn State, sat out last season and appears to be a potential frontrunner to start for U of L in 2015.

Beyond that, Louisville has already secured a verbal commitment from 2016 quarterback Keaton Torre, and Jawon Pass, a 2016 QB who is rated among the best at his position, is a recruiting priority.

So how did U of L land heralded high school quarterback prospect Lamar Jackson?

“The bottom line is, I take pride in training high school kids to become NFL quarterbacks,” U of L offensive coordinator Garrick McGee said. “It’s not just about putting a kid on the field, turning him loose, letting him run around the field and make plays. We get them in the meeting room and we sit them down and we start talking about football and how to see the game and understand situations. To be a pro, you’re going to have to learn.”

Here’s what one of 247Sports’ football recruiting analysts had to say about Jackson, via Steve Jones.

“I think he’s like Nick Marshall who was at Auburn but throws it better,” 247Sports.com analyst Ryan Bartow said. “He was a one-man band this year. He would put on shows where he would get 4-6 touchdowns a game, 400 combined yards with running and throwing. He’s a legit four-star guy, one of the better dual-threat guys in the class.

If you haven’t seen it already, Jackson’s highlight tape is certainly worth a look.
