Sibiea set for Big 10 visit

Pedro Sibiea committed to Louisville last month, but the 6'3, 275-pound Homestead (FL) defensive end plans to visit a Big 10 program this weekend.

Pedro Sibiea says his commitment to Louisville is solid, but the 6'3, 275-pound Homestead (FL) defensive end will visit Minnesota this weekend.

"There are still a few schools that are trying to make a push for me," Sibiea told

While he's set to travel north this weekend, it will take a lot for Minnesota to steal one away from Charlie Strong.

"I'm still pretty solid but at the same time anything can happen," Sibiea said. "At the last minute something might Wow me on these last couple visits, but right now Louisville is the only school that has stood out to me. I'm trying to give the other schools a chance anyway."

Louisville assistant Clint Hurtt visited Sibiea recently, and Strong spoke with the two-star prospect last week. "I spoke to Coach Strong a week ago," said Sibiea. "He told me he really wanted me up there. I think I fit great into that program. He's expecting me up there."

Sibiea plans to talk to James Burgess, a former teammate who enrolled at Louisville last week, about what it's like to play for the Cards.

"That's a hard man to contact," Sibiea said. "He hasn't contacted me to tell me what's it like there. I'm going to contact him sometime before the week is over."

Sibiea was supposed to visit Indiana last week, but the trip didn't happen.

"I was supposed to go to Indiana but they cancelled the visit," Sibiea said. "I'm going to Minnesota this weekend. The recruiter, Coach (Bill) Miller, has always been straight forward with me. I also have one of my teammates up there, Thieran Cockran."

Vanderbilt and Illinois visited Sibiea Tuesday.

"I just spoke to coaches from Vanderbilt and Illinois," Sibiea said. "They're going to take my information back to the head coach and if either one offers me a visit I'll have an open mind to take a visit up there."
