RECRUITING: Maurice Urrutia Likes Two

Maurice Urrutia's senior season came to an end earlier than he had hoped, but now the 6-foot-4, 190-pound athlete is starting to turn his attention towards recruiting.

Maurice Urrutia's season came to an end when the Fern Creek Tigers fell just short of making the Kentucky Class AAAA playoffs, so now the receiver/defensive back prospect is starting to turn his attention towards recruiting. The younger brother of current Louisville freshman Mario Urrutia continues to draw attention from a number of regional programs such as Louisville, Marshall and Indiana.

"Right now I'm real heavy on Louisville and Marshall," Urrutia told Inside the Ville on Sunday. "I'm getting letters from a lot of other schools, but I haven't been able to talk to any of the coaches lately because we moved and they don't have my new number or address yet."

Urrutia closed out his senior year with 35 receptions for 694 yards and 4 touchdowns, while also leading the Tigers in tackles and recording five interceptions.

"I think of myself as both a receiver and defensive back," explained the 6-foot-6, 190-pound prospect. "I could play either in college, but I'll probably be a receiver."

Urrutia, who holds an offer from Louisville, anticipates receiving ACT score next week and as soon as he does he expects to begin scheduling a few official visits.

He finished the season as Jefferson County's second-leading receiver, following only Andrew Robinson from Manual High School.
