In addition to welcoming a group of prospects for camp over the weekend, the University of Louisville coaching staff also hosted a few unofficial visitors. Among them were a pair of committed teammates from Winter Haven (Fla.) West Orange high school.
Four-star running back Dexter Williams, a Miami commit, and three-star wide receiver Jalen Julius, who has committed to Florida, visited the Cardinals football program on Sunday and both left with scholarship offers.
Rated among the top 75 receivers in the nation by Scout.com, Julius continues to research his many options and, along with Williams, is embarking on a road trip that will makes stop at multiple schools. Unsure of what to expect during his time in Louisville, Julius left impressed by what the program had to offer, as well as the presence of so many players on the roster from the Sunshine State.
"I loved Louisville," he told Cardinal Authority. "I had a really good vibe from it. A lot of their players are Florida, so it's cool they have Florida boys there."
In addition to the Florida and Louisville, he also holds scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, Mississippi, Ohio State, Tennessee, Wake Forest and others. His tour of schools continues, with Clemson, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee among those he plans to check out.
While he remains committed to the Gators, his visit to Louisville has the Cardinals under heavy consideration.
"It felt like home," he said. "I'm a Florida commit right now, but Louisville is in my top schools."
