TE Nick True "absolutely loved" Junior Day

Ft. Thomas Highlands tight end Nick True talks about his time visiting the University of Louisville on Saturday for the programs Junior Day.

A solid group of tight ends were among the many that attended the University of Louisville's Junior Day on Saturday afternoon and in-state target Nick True (6'6, 230) of Ft. Thomas Highlands was among them.

"It went great, I absolutely loved it there in Louisville," said True of his visit. "It was awesome."

"At first we had a presentation from all of the coaches and then we went to their basketball game against Seton Hall," said True. "We left with about a minute left in the game because they were destroying Seton Hall. When we got back, we had another presentation from the coaches and then took a tour of all the athletic facilities."

While he enjoyed his entire visit, the personality of the U of L coaching staff, coupled with the opportunity to spend a lot of personal time with tight ends coach Sherron Moore seemed to leave the strongest impression.

"The honesty of all the coaches," he explained. "They seemed like the most outgoing coaches that I've talked to and I've talked to a lot of places."

"What I really liked about it was how they spent one-on-one time. There probably wasn't a minute that I couldn't talk to one of the coaches for the whole five hours. I talked to the tight end coach and was able to ask him a bunch of questions, it was really awesome."

Louisville was True's first Junior Day visit, but he has plans to trip to Cincinnati, Illinois and Toledo.

In addition to Cincinnati, Illinois, Louisville and Toledo, True has also started to hear from Ohio State and Kentucky.

While he has yet to receive a scholarship offer, True feels like Louisville could extend one in the future.

"It feels like it's getting pretty close," he explained. "I haven't really discussed with them about that. I was more interested in what their plan was for me and how they would incorporate the tight ends in the offense and things like that."

As a junior, True helped Ft. Thomas Highlands win the 4A state title. He hauled in 15 passes for 218 yards and 4 touchdowns.
