Mother of 4-star QB Jawon Pass: Louisville has advantage

Class of 2016 four-star quarterback Jawon Pass, out of Carver High School in Columbus, Georgia, has yet to commit to a team, but his mother offered a hint as to where he might end up. Speaking to Steve Jones of the Courier Journal, Kershena Thomas stated that Louisville had a “big advantage” in landing her son, especially because his brother Khane already plays wide receiver for the Cardinals.

“They’re connected at the hip and the head,” she said with a laugh. “They are extremely close. I thought Jawon was going to need counseling when Khane left (for college).”

“Oh, that’s going to play a big part in it,” she said. “That’s going to be a big factor. The fact that they’re so close and Khane is already there, that gives Louisville a big advantage over anyone else. … Jawon is loving the (U of L) program anyway, (but) that’s the big plus for them. Jawon will say that’s not the main thing, but I think it is.”

With excellent size for his position at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, it’s no secret that Pass has received a multitude of offers from a great number of schools. On top of Louisville, he has gotten offers from Auburn, Alabama, North Carolina, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Miami, plus many others.

Meanwhile, Pass is showcasing his skills at The Open, where this happened Wednesday.

Needless to say, Campus Sports will update Pass’s decision as more information becomes available.
