Down to five for Luck

Rivals100 quarterback Andrew Luck said on Monday afternoon that his list is down to five schools.
The four-star prospect has gathered numerous scholarship offers from coast to coast, but this week, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound signal caller said that he had cut his list to five schools.
"It's down to Purdue, Northwestern, Stanford, Virginia, and Rice," Luck said. "This wasn't last minute. I put a lot of thought into this list."

Luck, the nation's No. 3 rated pro-style quarterback prospect, listed why each of the five schools made his final list.
"With Purdue, I've visited their camp last summer and it's a great campus," Luck said. "The coaching staff was excellent and the way they work with the players was great. They've got a great engineering program and they've had a good football program.
"Northwestern it's the same thing. They have a great academic program and coach (Pat) Fitzgerald is very personable. Stanford is the same way with their great academic program. Coach (Jim) Harbaugh is very energetic, young, and fun to be around. Rice is a great academic institution. My mom and grandparents went there. I'm intrigued by Rice."
When asked if there was a leading school on this list, Luck said that all five were even. He said that he is planning to get to all of his finalists for a visit this summer.
"I'm going to try to visit all five," Luck said. "Rice won't be hard since it's about a 10 minute drive. I've visited Stanford, Purdue, and Northwestern already but I'm going to try and visit all of those again. I'm also going to try and get to UVa at some point for a visit."
As for when the Houston Stratford prospect plans to make his final decision, he says there is no set date at this time.
"I guess it's whenever it feels right," he said. "At the end of the summer, if I feel like I've found the perfect spot, I'll do it then. If I feel like I need more time, then after the season I'll do it. Plus, to be in this situation, I might as well make the most of it."
