"It was nice, I had a real good time," Wales said. "I liked the coaches and players, and I got to see the life on the campus."
What stood out about the Cardinals?
"How hard they worked on the field and everybody is a family. They know when to have fun and when to turn it on and be serious."
Wales, who has narrowed his choices to Louisville and Kentucky, plans to visit the Wildcats on January 13. He had an opportunity to talk more in-depth with Strong on his visit about the possibility of playing for the Cardinals next season.
"We mainly talked about what's holding me back (from making a decision)," Wales said. "I just told them I'm keeping all my options open and I'm still going to take the rest of my visits. I don't have any school that's in front of any school right now."
Wales doesn't sound like he's in a rush to make a decision.
"I'll most likely announce my decision on national signing day," Wales said.
