DeAndre Herron verbally committed to Louisville over the summer, but will visit Indiana and Pittsburgh before signing day. Herron, a 6'5, 325-pound offensive tackle from Avon, Ind., made an official visit to Louisville this weekend and told InsideTheVille.com he plans to sign with Charlie Strong's Cardinals next month.

"I'm still a Cardinal," Herron said. "I plan to sign on signing day with Louisville. I'm just taking these (other) official visits to have fun. It's a one time opportunity to travel like this and see what other schools have to offer. Right now I don't think anyone has anything on Louisville."

Herron was one of 14 prospects visiting Louisville this weekend, including 12 others who plan to sign with the Cardinals next month. Three other offensive line commits - Sid Anvoots, Joe Manley and T.C. Klusman - also visited UofL this weekend with Herron.

"It was really fun," Herron said. "I had a good time, a lot of fun. It was a good experience meeting the players and checking out the dorms We were out with our hosts the whole time and then we just toured the campus. They're all cool kids. They're all going to make an impact for the program."

Ryan Mack served as Herron's host during his visit.

"He's a cool guy," Herron said. "I hung out with him and his roommate, Aaron Epps, and Mike Romano. It was real cool hanging out with those guys and they treated me like I was already family. I appreciate that."

Mack and the other Louisville players told Herron what to expect next season playing for Charlie Strong's program.

"They told me I'm going to have to drop weight and be ready for conditioning," Herron said. "There's no guarantee that I'll start. But the players say if you work hard it pays off. So I enjoyed listening to their advice on my visit."

Herron said he's looking forward to signing day but isn't planning to make a big deal about his college decision.

"It's coming up fast," Herron said. "i'm excited. I'm just going to sign the paper and keep going. The action happens once you get there. I'm working on my books and working out with the high school team most of the time."
