Louisville the latest offer for Knoxville, Tenn., Catholic standout Bryn Tucker

Although he is still a freshman, offensive tackle Bryn Tucker is already being pursued by multiple elite college football programs.

Louisville was the latest to offer.

"I visited for a junior day back in February," said the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Tucker. "(Offensive line) coach (Mike) Summers is a great person and it was great spending time with him and the other coaches. I also really enjoyed the basketball game against Notre Dame.

"The new additions to the facilities are also really impressive. I'm planning to go to a game early in the season and looking forward to seeing all the renovations.

"Coach Summers is also the recruiter for my area, so we've been talking a lot and building a great bond. He said that I'm the type of player they're looking for on the offensive line."

Along with Louisville, AlabamaLSUMississippiMississippi State and Tennessee have offered.

Penn State is also showing a lot of interest.

"It would great to get an offer from them," Tucker said. "They're a great program and they won the Big Ten last season. They've produced a lot of great offensive linemen through the years and that's something that also gets my attention.

"(Safeties) coach (Tim) Banks is recruiting me and I call him once a week. I enjoy talking to him and think we're building a great relationship. I'd like to visit soon, but I'm not sure when yet."
