Pedro Sibiea, an athletic 6'3, 265-pound defensive lineman from Homestead, Florida, will join highly-rated teammates James Burgess and Herb Waters on an official visit to Louisville this weekend.

Louisville assistant Clint Hurtt took a look at Sibiea's highlights last week during a recruiting trip to see Burgess and Waters and offered the two-star prospect an opportunity to visit Charlie Strong's program.

"He was talking to two of my teammates and told me he wanted me to come up with them," Sibiea said. "We spoke a while back and he needed to see a lot more film about me. When he came the other day he saw my highlights and was really impressed. He said that's what he needs on his front line. So I'm going to go up on an official visit and see the atmosphere at Louisville."

Though Louisville hasn't offered a scholarship, Sibiea is interested to learn more about the Cardinals.

"We haven't spoke about an offer so I don't know how that's going to go," said Sibiea. "My interest is up there. I've got an open mind about it. I'm going to go up with an open attitude and see what it's like in Louisville. I have been checking out their depth chart and the commitments they've got coming next season. I'm impressed with it. I'm excited to go up there and see what it's like."

Sibiea has already made an official visit to Cincinnati. Florida International is also in the mix with Sibiea and Georgia continues to evaluate him as a prospect. Minnesota has shown interest, but hasn't kept in touch lately.

"It's a slow and steady process for me," Sibiea said. "I still talk to Cincinnati. They still keep in touch with me."

Rated one of the Top 65 prospects in Florida by SunStateFootball.com, Sibiea believes his athleticism and versatility are his biggest strengths.

"I think I did pretty good this season," Sibiea said. "I helped the linebackers a lot and put pressure on quarterbacks. I did my job as a defensive tackle. The best thing I bring to the table is my athleticism. I'm pretty versatile and can play any position on the line."
