VISITOR BREAKDOWN: Dandy Dozen, plus one

It's a big recruiting weekend for Charlie Strong. Louisville will host 13 recruits on visits this weekend, including key OL, RB, DE, and TE targets. InsideTheVille.com breaks down the Cardinals impressive visitor list.

With less than three weeks before National Signing Day (Feb. 2), Charlie Strong will welcome 13 official visitors to the Louisville campus this weekend.

Seven of those 13 prospects are verbally committed to the Cardinals, and will look to finalize their recruitments this weekend. That group includes Ryan Mack, a three-star offensive lineman from Memphis, Aaron Epps, a three-star offensive lineman from Tucker, Ga., Deiontrez Mount, a three-star defensive end from Fort Walton Beach, Fla., Jacquese Kirk, a three-star cornerback from Jasper, Al., John Wallace, the nation's 10th-best placekicker, Eric Robinson-Berry, a three-star cornerback from Indianapolis, and Robert Terrell, a three-star linebacker from Russellville, Al.

Of the non-committed prospects, Strong will host key targets for the offensive line, running back, tight end, wide receiver and defensive end. Here is a breakdown of Louisville's six uncommitted visitors:

Alonzo Harris: Keep an eye on the 6-2, 207-pound running back from Gadsden, Ala. A three-star prospect, Harris told InsideTheVille.com Thursday that Louisville and Kentucky sit atop his list of favorites. Harris, who camped at Louisville last summer, had nothing but good things to say about Charlie Strong's Cardinals. Currently, Louisville's highly-ranked recruiting class doesn't have a running back, so there's an opportunity waiting for a player of Harris' caliber.

Benson Browne: Browne hasn't received a lot of ink, but he's another guy to keep a close eye on. Browne is down to three schools: Louisville, Illinois and N.C. State. This will be his final visit before he makes his college decision. That decision will come Monday after he returns from Louisville, according to his high school coach, George Kontsis. Kontsis told InsideTheVille.com Wednesday that finding a school relatively close to Cincinnati would be a factor in his decision. Of the three teams remaining on the list, Louisville is by far the closest.


Benson Browne is expected to make a decision Monday after visiting Louisville.
Kaleb Johnson: Louisville would love to add one or two more offensive linemen for next year. Johnson, a three-star offensive lineman from Jacksonville, Fla., is right at the top of UofL's wish-list. Johnson has already visited Rutgers, North Carolina and Iowa State. Johnson's mother will visit Louisville this weekend with her 6-4, 290-pound son, and it could be his final official visit. Johnson has played his cards close to the vest, and didn't name favorites when InsideTheVille.com spoke with him earlier this week.

B.J. Dubose: Louisville could use another defensive end to round out its class. Dubose, a three-star pass rusher, would fit the bill. An elite prospect, Dubose is also considering Florida State, Miami, Syracuse and Texas Tech. There's speculation that Dubose may not qualify academically, so it may be a situation where a school gambles that he'll qualify and keeps their fingers crossed.

Spencer Region: An Under Armour All-American, Region could bolster Louisville's offensive line. The 6-5, 330-pound guard prospect will be tough to pry away from SEC programs like LSU and Auburn, and Wisconsin will receive a visit next week. Still, give Louisville assistant Mike Groh a lot of credit for positioning the Cardinals to receive a visit, and keep UofL's chances alive this late in the process with Region.

Daryl Collins: Collins, a three-star Alabama commit, maybe hasn't felt the love recently from the Crimson Tide. Though Collins says he's still solid with his commitment to Alabama, he'll visit Louisville this weekend, and Kentucky next week. A talented wide receiver prospect, Collins attended Louisville's camp during the summer. Could he be a package deal with teammate Alonzo Harris for the Cardinals?
