Blake Fromang just returned to Orlando following a busy week that saw him visit Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Vanderbilt.

A 6-foot-8, 280-pound three-star offensive tackle from Lake Highland Prep, Fromang is one of the top lineman in Florida, boasting 14 offers, primarily from ACC, Big East and SEC schools. Last Wednesday, Fromang visited Louisville and was impressed with Charlie Strong's program.

"I thought it was great. I liked everything about [Louisville]," Fromang said. "Louisville I think is definitely an up and coming program. Coach Strong has a great game plan for the Cardinals and think they're going to be great in the next couple years."

Fromang, who made the visit with both parents, received an extensive look at Strong's program.

"First, I met all the coaches," Fromang said. "They were very nice and showed me the weight room and introduced me to the strength coach. He was really cool and I liked him a lot.

"Then they took me to the locker room and showed me their jerseys. We saw the campus and the new dorms that are getting built, which I loved. That was big for me because I'm tall and I would have enough room. Then I went back and talked to the coaches."

Fromang spoke with Strong and offensive line coach Dave Borbely, who expressed Louisville's need for tackles following the departure of both starting tackles from last season.

"They all said they were interested in me," Fromang said. "They need tackles because they had a lot of [tackles] graduate. Coach Strong was talking to me about the program and where he came from. Then I was talking to Coach Borbely. He sat me down and went through my highlight tape and told me what I could do to help my game. I got a good feel for everybody."

In addition to Louisville, Fromang also visited Cincinnati, Vanderbilt and Kentucky. He has offers from all three programs. "All of them put on their A-game when I [visited]. I was really impressed by all of them," said Fromang.

Though his recent tour gave him an opportunity to see several of the programs that have offered scholarships, Fromang isn't quite ready to make a decision about his future.

"Seeing all these schools in such a short period of time I need a chance to take it all in," Fromang said. "I have a list what I'm looking for and I'm going to sit down with my parents and go through the list. My coach told me to wait on making my decision but I'm probably going to narrow it down by the end of the summer. Academics, coaches, the competition I could get in each conference are important."
