Greg Scruggs, a three-star defensive end from Cincinnati, Ohio, has reached his decision. After making all of his visits, the 6'5, 235-pound Scruggs decided to follow his teammates to Louisville.

"I committed to Louisville today," Scruggs told InsideTheVille.com from school.


Greg Scruggs becomes one of Louisville's
top recruits.

Scruggs, Scout.com's No. 56 ranked defensive end prospect, also considered Tennessee, Wake Forest, Michigan State, North Carolina State and Virginia.

Scruggs, who played just one season of high school football, vaulted up recruiting rankings and ended the season as one of the hottest prospects in the midwest.

In his lone high school season, Scruggs helped St. Xavier to an undefeated season, the Ohio Division I state championship and the No. 1 ranking by USA Today.

Scruggs, who runs a 4.7 forty, is the third member of St. Xavier's record-setting team to choose Louisville. He'll join three-star running back Darius Ashley and two-star tight end Stephon Ball at UofL.

"He's 6'5, 230-pounds, he can run, he can play tight end; he can play rush end. He's long," St. Xavier coach Steve Specht said. "The biggest thing is he plays hard and he's got a high motor. His upside is tremendous because he doesn't know what the heck he's doing. He's gotten better progressively every week and he gets increasingly better."

Stay tuned to InsideTheVille.com for more comments from Scruggs about his decision later this afternoon.
