Louisville offensive line commit Sid Anvoots opens his senior season August 20 at Lucas Oil Stadium against Brebeuf Prep, which features Kentucky lineman commit Jon Toth. It's a matchup the 6-foot-4, 285-pound Anvoots has been anticipating all summer long.

"Everything has been going great," Anvoots said. "I've been working out and getting in shape for the season. My goal is to win state and become the best player I can. I'm excited. We get to play John Toth, who is going to Kentucky, the first game. So I can't wait to play against them."

Anvoots, the first offensive lineman to commit to the Cardinals during the spring, said he maintains frequent contact with the Louisville coaching staff, primarily offensive line coach Dave Borbely, who he worked with last month during Charlie Strong's football camp.

"I talk to Coach Borbs once a week," Anvoots said. "I talked to Coach Strong and Coach [Vance] Bedford a couple weeks after the summer camp they had. It's a pretty solid relationship so far."

Since Anvoots announced his commitment to Strong's Cardinals, three other offensive lineman have followed his lead. T.C. Klusman, a friend of Anvoots' from Cincinnati, and DeAndre Herron, another of Anvoots' buddies from Avon, Ind., committed to Louisville this summer, as did massive Bowling Green, Ky., OG Joe Manley.

"It looks like it's going to be a pretty big, solid group," Anvoots said. "We definitely need a lot of work, especially me, but Coach Borbs will whip us into college linemen. [DeAndre] is definitely going to help us out. He brings size, he's strong and he's a hard worker. It's going to be nice to have somebody that you have known for a couple years go down there with you."

Though he likely won't make an official visit to Louisville until after the season, Anvoots only has eyes for the Cardinals. "Coach Borbs said wait until January [for an official visit], so me and T.C. might be heading up there together for our official visit," said Anvoots. "I'm completely committed to Louisville and I have no interest in any other schools."
