CORAL GABLES, Fla. - At the Nike Football Training Camp in Miami, wide receivers were clearly the top position group in attendance. Among the many outstanding receivers there, one of the best was Delray Beach (Fla.) Atlantic wide receiver James Louis.
In Louis' first camp of the year, he put together a strong performance and showed why he is considered one of the top wideouts in the state.
"I thought it was going to be pretty tough but I was able to handle it," Louis said following the event. "It was my first camp. Right now I'm not sure what other camps I'm going to but my coach will be setting me up and letting me know what other camps we have set and I'll be attending them."
Louis has already visited Miami for a spring scrimmage and he plans on heading to Gainesville for Florida's spring game next. Among offers from LSU, Virginia Tech, Oregon and others, Louis has a few schools on top.
"I'm really interested in the Florida Gators, Miami Hurricanes and Georgia right now," he said. "I'm going to take some visits soon. I just want to see how the school is and meet the coaches. I already know the coaches at those schools I just named but I just want to know how the environment is and what the depth chart looks like so I don't make a bad choice.
"As of right now all of the schools I just named, I've looked at the depth charts and I think I'll be able to fit in the offense right now."
While his offer list is extensive with major football programs, Louis does have two schools in particular that he is still waiting to hear more from.
"USC and Alabama are the two," he said. "I just like the way they use their receivers. Everybody touches the ball. Everybody has a lot of receptions. I just like the way they use their receivers."
