Sealand visiting Louisville

Jacob Sealand, one of the top 2012 linebacker prospects in Georgia, holds offers from Louisville, South Carolina and Virginia Tech. The 6-1, 220-pound Sealand has already visited USC, but plans to check out Charlie Strong's program Friday.

Jacob Sealand is one of the top 2012 linebacker prospects in Georgia and he's making a point to check out his options this spring.

Sealand, a 6-1, 220-pound prospect from Tucker, Ga., holds offers from South Carolina, Louisville and Virginia Tech. Sealand told this week that South Carolina and Virginia Tech are his two favorites at the moment, but Friday the standout linebacker will be in Louisville to check out Charlie Strong's Cardinals.

"I'm going up there [Louisville] tomorrow," Sealand told's Chad Simmons Thursday.

A teammate of Louisville signee Aaron Epps, the Cardinals offered Sealand last November. Epps, a promising 6-6, 245-pound offensive tackle, has put in the good word for Louisville since Sealand landed his offer.

"[Epps] told me that the coaches are very down to earth and that if they recruit you, then they remember you," Sealand previously told "He said that we are just not another name to them and that is nice to know. He also said the campus is nice, so I am interested in learning more about them now."

Sealand has already visited South Carolina. He's also planning to visit the Hokies over spring break. This weekend, however, Louisville will get a chance to make an impression on Sealand.

"Once I get ‘that' feeling I'm going to commit," Sealand told Simmons. "I want them to really need me. I don't want to go somewhere where they forget about me and I just fall into the program."
