Alonzo Harris came into his visit to Louisville this weekend listing Charlie Strong's Cardinals as one of two leaders in his recruitment along with Kentucky.

A three-star running back from Gadsden, Ala., Harris told InsideTheVille.com that his visit did nothing but help Louisville's chances.

"I had a great visit," Harris told InsideTheVille.com. "We got up there on Friday and had dinner. We met the players and the coaches. They were nice people. The city was beautiful and the atmosphere was wonderful. We had a chance to go to the basketball game and see their fanbase, and that was pretty good."

Marcus Smith, a freshman linebacker from Alabama, hosted Harris on his visit. Harris said he enjoyed bonding with Smith and the other Louisville players he met over the weekend. He also said he had an opportunity to speak with Louisville coaches about the possibility of becoming a Cardinal next season.

"Basically they were saying they would love to have me," Harris said. "We sat down with the coaches and to watch film of the offense. To me, the visit moved them up because I had such a good time. I really liked the players and felt like I bonded well with them."

Harris said he plans to visit Kentucky next weekend before he makes a college decision. He rushed for 1,755 yards and 21 touchdowns as a senior to earn first team 6A Alabama All-Star honors.
