"I did pretty good there," Eakins said. "I loved everything about Louisville. Louisville had great coaches, great competition and great teaching sessions. They have great facilities and I could see myself as a great fit in their program."
What kind of feedback did Eakins receive from Charlie Strong's coaching staff?
"They were telling me to keep up the good work," Eakins said. "They liked what they saw [at camp] and they're going to keep in touch with me. I'm going to work on a few things like my backpedal and breaking on balls. Other than that they really liked what they saw."
Toledo, Kent State, Ohio, Nebraska, West Virginia are showing interest in Eakins, who recently attended camps at Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State. Though he played behind four defensive backs who signed with Division 1 programs last season, Eakins managed to record 35 tackles and an interception as a junior.
"My coaches trust me to put me on the corner that I have that side locked down," Eakins said. "[The] coaches can trust me when they put me on that island."
