2013 wide receiver James Quick brings the speed necessary for Louisville's offense - James Quick's Facebook

'13 WR James Quick announced that he planned on choosing between Ohio State and Louisville during the Army All-American game. With Quick passing on OSU, the Buckeyes could still use an outstanding playmaker at the receiver position for the class of 2013.

After months of switching favorites, visiting schools and hearing from the vast majority of college football coaches, 2013 4-star wide receiver James Quick announced his intentions to play for Louisvlle today at the Army All-American Game. The Kentucky-born Quick was one of the most sought after recruits in the country, holding an impressive offer list from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Oregon, Ohio State, Notre Dame and many other top BCS-level programs.

Leading into Saturday, the 6'2", 180-pound Quick arrived to the Army All-American Bowl and quickly named Ohio State his leader, a development which reportedly took place in the last two weeks. The Cardinals had previously led for the majority of the recruiting process, and their dominant victory over Florida likely helped seal the deal.

Quick had the skills that Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has been looking for and will surely be a coup for Charlie Strong's offense. James was a state champion in the 200-meter dash as a freshman and sophomore, and has been clocked at a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash.

On Thursday evening, Quick hosted calls from both Louisville and Ohio State to get one last chance to make his final decision. After Friday's Under Armour All-American Game, 2013 LB Trey Johnson committed to the Buckeyes, giving Ohio State 20 total commitments. With Quick passing, there are still a few open spots they could possibly fill. Shelton Gibson may quickly becomes the target of the Ohio State staff.

Quick is ranked by the 247Composite rankings as the country's No. 10 receiver and No. 82 prospect overall. In leading his team to a state championship as a senior, he caught 85 passes for 1,416 and 16 touchdowns and was a big play threat every single time he touched the football.

Louisville is getting a fantastic athlete, and if you need any proof, check out what's to come from the future Cardinal:
