One of the nation's top quarterback prospects took in his second junior day of the year with a trip to Texas this past weekend.
Houston (Texas) Stratford signal caller Andrew Luck, who's already accumulated numerous scholarship offers, had already been to Texas A&M for an in-state trip. This past weekend, he took another in-state trip to Austin, Texas to check out the Longhorns. On his way back, Luck talked about what he saw and what he got to do while he was there.
"It's a nice place and a great city," Luck said about his trip to UT. "I got to watch practice which was interesting. I always go in wondering how colleges run their practices. Other than that, it's a great place. I've been to Texas A&M and Texas and they have their similarities, but also some differences too.
"They're both big schools and have a lot to offer."
Luck says that he did not receive a scholarship offer there but did get a chance to say hello to the coaches.
"It wasn't a lot of one-on-one time, but I got a chance to say hello to coach Mack Brown," Luck said. "That was really about it. They didn't talk about an offer yet."
Despite the Longhorns not offering, the offer count is certainly going up by the day for Luck. Texas A&M, Northwestern, Purdue, LSU, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Duke, and Nebraska are the schools that have offered Luck as of this weekend.
"I'm still open right now," Luck said. "I'll probably start narrowing down my list after spring practice."
One thing that is really important to Luck is academics. He says that aside from that, he's also looking at a tradition-rich program who consistently is winning.
Luck doesn't have any other plans for junior day visits. He says that both Texas and Texas A&M showed him a lot.
"A&M has great tradition, it's really awesome," Luck said. "With Texas, just watching their practice was cool. They've got great coaches and great facilities. I know from watching practice that there is a lot of things I need to work on to get to that next level."
Though he's visited in-state schools, Luck says that location won't be a factor in his decision.
"I've moved a lot over my life," Luck said. "It wouldn't be anything new to me. Like I said, I'm still open to everything right now."
Next up for Luck is spring football and he couldn't be more excited.
"I just can't wait to get out there and start throwing the football around again," Luck said. "I would love to get back into the playoffs and win our district."
