Waters impressed with Louisville

Herbert Waters, a Miami commitment from Homestead, Florida, made an official visit to Louisville this weekend with teammates James Burgess, another Miami commitment, and Pedro Sibiea, who committed to Charlie Strong's Cardinals during the trip.

Waters, a three-star wide receiver, came away impressed by Louisville's family atmosphere and facilities. Waters was hosted by junior corner Adrian Bushell.

"It was good, I liked it," Waters said of his trip. "The facilities were very impressive from the Yum! (Center) to the football stadium…I felt comfortable there. I liked my visit."

Waters and the rest of Louisville's visitors, which also included Miami standouts Keith Brown and Lamar Atkins, spoke with Charlie Strong and watched the Cardinals practice for the upcoming Belk Bowl against NC State.

"Coach Strong is a very cool coach, very calm," Waters said. "We didn't talk about football that much, we talked about academics. And Coach [Clint] Hurtt is an incredible coach. We went to their practice and the receiver coach is an incredible coach too. He had all the wide receivers working hard and all the drills were precise. "

Though he is committed to Miami, Waters is checking out all of his options before signing day. Besides his visit to Louisville, Waters also plans to visit FIU (Jan. 6), Vanderbilt (Jan. 20) and Cincinnati (Jan. 13) before announcing his decision to stick with his commitment to the Hurricanes or go elsewhere.

"I know I'm committed to Miami, but I'm keeping my options open," said Waters. "They'll be (Louisville) in my top. I'm not going to commit early. I'm going to finish taking all of my visits and then hopefully come up with my decision. Staying at home is not a factor. What's a real big factor is the Criminal Justice program. Coach Hurtt told me Louisville has one of the top programs in the country."
