Decision looming, Louisville leads

Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern linebacker Henry Famurewa put the Cardinals on top of his list following his visit for the Spring Game last month. The Scout.com three-star linebacker plans to make his college choice soon and tells Cardinal Authority that Louisville still leads.

The University of Louisville coaching staff has had an excellent spring with recruiting as the Cardinals have secured verbal commitments from 11 athletes since the beginning of spring.

The hot streak doesn't seem to be slowing and another Henry Famurewa of Powder Springs (GA) McEachern High School could be one that continues the trend for the Cardinals soon.

"I'm probably going to end my recruiting process at the beginning of June," he told Cardinal Authority on Monday.

Since Louisville became the first to offer the 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker in March, a host of others have done the same. Boston College, East Carolina, Illinois, Middle Tennessee, NC State and Tulane have also extended scholarship offers.

Famurewa, who says coaches like his "size, potential and speed," recorded 90 tackles, including 20 for a loss, and 10 sacks as a junior.

Last month he made the trop to Louisville for the Spring Game last month and his experience pushed the Cardinals to the top of his list.

"Louisville is still on top," he said. "Next would probably be NC State."

"The coaching staff is the main reason," he said. "It feels like the perfect place for me to play."

The opportunity to play early for the Cardinals is another factor.

"They said that they wouldn't redshirt me and that they would try to get me on the field as early as possible," he said. "I think I fit in with their defense."

While he has no upcoming visits confirmed, the three-star prospect hopes to visit both Louisville and NC State during the coming weeks.
