Cole Ousley, a 2014 prospect from Paducah (KY) Lone Oak, was the fastest quarterback at Louisville's camp last weekend. One of the top QB's in the state, Ousley told InsideTheVille.com he enjoyed his camp experience and has strong interest in the Cardinals.

"It went good and I had fun," Ousley said of Louisville's camp. "All the facilities are really nice and I like Coach [Shawn] Watson a lot."

Ousley, who ran a 4.54 at Louisville's camp - the fastest time of all the quarterbacks, said he received positive feedback from Watson, Louisville's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

"He really liked my footwork," Ousley said. "He liked my speed because I ran the fastest forty out of all the quarterbacks. He really liked that. He told me to keep working."

Ousley put up impressive passing numbers as a sophomore, throwing for 3,517 yards and 53 touchdowns while leading his team to a 10-3 record. That performance hasn't led to scholarship offers just yet, but Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State and Texas A&M are monitoring Ousley's development.

"I've always been a really big Louisville fan growing up since I was young," Ousley said. "It would be awesome to go to school there. I just like the school itself and where it's located. It's not too far from home."

While he grew up rooting for Louisville, Ousley said he would have to make a big adjustment to play for the Cardinals.

"One thing I didn't like about Louisville was the offense they run," said Ousley. "Ever since I've been at Lone Oak I've been more of a spread guy. I'd like to inherit a spread offense in college. In some ways I think Coach Watson's offense would be a good fit, but there are a lot of seven step drops that I'm not really used to. That would be a change."

Ousley will attend 7 on 7 tournaments in July at Vanderbilt, Lexington Catholic and Arkansas State. He also plans to attend Arkansas one-day camp July 21.

"I think one of my main strengths is leadership and how I can take over games and winning," Ousley. "My accuracy is also a strength."

The 6-3, 175-pound Ousey said he "hasn't heard much from Kentucky" during the recruiting process.
