Swindle enjoys Louisville visit

Jordan Swindle, a talented lineman from Jacksonville, Fla., visited Louisville on Monday and told InsideTheVille.com that Charlie Strong's Cardinals are one of his "top choices."

Jordan Swindle, a 6-6, 290-pound offensive lineman from Jacksonville, Fla., made an unofficial visit to Louisville on Monday, and told InsideTheVille.com that Charlie Strong's program is one of his "top choices."

"I really liked the facilities and the fact that they have tutors to help you with academics, I thought that was really nice," Swindle said. "I met most of the coaches, but I didn't get to meet (offensive line) Coach [Dave] Borbely, which I was kind of bummed about. But I liked meeting Coach Strong and the strength coach, Coach Moorer. I think he's a really good coach."

Swindle and his mom spoke with Strong for about 20 minutes at the UofL football complex.

"They seem really interested," Swindle said. "Coach Strong was talking about their need for linemen. Last year that was their strength and they lost eight seniors. He said they need five or six this year."

Louisville already has four commitments from offensive linemen in the Class of 2012. Where do the Cardinals stand on Swindle's list?

"After this visit I'm really excited about Louisville and they are definitely one of my top choices," Swindle said.

Swindle is visiting Kentucky on Tuesday and visits West Virginia Wednesday. Both programs have offered Swindle. After those visits, Swindle will head home, get ready for the season, and start lining up official visits.

"Those are the three main schools I'm considering," said Swindle. "I don't have a leader because I haven't seen all of the schools yet."

Swindle said he'll probably make a decision after the season. "One, academics are important and the school has to feel like home. Third, I want to go to a school that has the ability to win championships."

Louisville appears to fit Swindle's profile. "Louisville has a good pre-Med program, and that's what I want to major in. Louisville feels like Jacksonville, which is my hometown. I feel like Coach Strong is going to do well the next couple years up there."
