Louisville lands three-star lineman

Louisville received a BIG three-star 2012 commitment Friday night. Sid Anvoots, a 6-4, 285-pound lineman from Indianapolis, called Charlie Strong and told the Louisville coach he wants to play for the Cardinals.

Sid Anvoots, a 6-4, 285-pound lineman from Indianapolis, made his second visit to Louisville Friday and verbally committed to Charlie Strong's Cardinals.

"I was down there Wednesday and saw the facilities and met the coaches and felt we had good chemistry," Anvoots told InsideTheVille.com. "Today we went down again and toured the campus and I met with the professor that would control me getting a degree. I felt like I was at home. It just clicked and I had that gut feeling."

Friday night, Anvoots called Louisville assistant Dave Borbely and told him he wanted to play for the Cardinals. Borbely then passed the phone to Strong and defensive coordinator Vance Bedford.

"They were all excited," said Anvoots. "The phone got passed around to like six different coaches. I told Coach Borbely I wanted to commit and he was excited and told Coach Strong and Coach Bedford. It's been a crazy night."

Anvoots plays tackle in high school, but he'll likely play center or guard for Louisville.

"Possibly center or guard," Anvoots said. "I play tackle in high school. I played center as a freshman, and I'm hoping to get some practice at that and guard this season. They like my height and think I'm pretty knowledgeable about the plays. He feels like I'd be a good fit there because my body is built for center."

Anvoots watched Borbely, UofL's line coach, closely when he visited practice earlier this week.

"I like the way he coaches. He had some interesting drills and I think they would be beneficial," Anvoots said. "He was teaching his players."

Louisville was Anvoots first offer, but he was receiving interest from Purdue, Western Michigan and a bunch of other schools.
