Now, the Seneca High School defensive end is hoping – and waiting – for the U of L coaching staff to extend a scholarship offer. He made his latest visit on Saturday for the Cardinals' Junior Day.
"I like Louisville's program a lot and coach (Charlie) Strong and how he has the program set up," Tubman said. "I learned a lot about Louisville on the visit. I learned a lot about their goals and about academics.
"But I don't have an official offer. I just have to sit tight and see."
Tubman said being at Junior Day with 60-plus other prospects, including a trip to the KFC Yum Center for a game, was "a whole lot of fun."
"I'm going to stay on contact," Tubman said. "I have been to Louisville a couple of times and I am going to watch them in spring practice.
"(The Junior Day) was about what I thought it would be. I think it was a little extra boost after hearing coach Strong about what the goals are for the program and how you have to go about it to get there."
The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Tubman had 45 tackles as a junior. He's also hearing from Kentucky and Western Kentucky.
