Louisville football: Recruiting notebook

The University of Louisville football program hasn't had a commitment in over a week but that doesn't mean there's no news on the recruiting front. The U of L staff has been busy hosting a potential transfer and handing out offers. Here's a notebook with a few of the most recent newsworthy items.


Former Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt is looking to transfer and is still on a visit to the University of Louisville campus.

Lunt, a top prospect coming out of Rochester, Ill., High School, has already visited Illinois and arrived on U of L's campus on Tuesday.

He's expected to be at U of L until late Wednesday.

Lunt started five games as a true freshman last season at Oklahoma State. He threw for 1,108 yards and six touchdowns before an injury.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Lunt decided to transfer when Mike Gundy hinted that he wouldn't be the starter for the 2013 season.


U of L wide receivers coach Ron Dugans has been successful recruiting the Jacksonville, Fla., area in the Class of 2014.

The Cardinals have three commitments from Jacksonville already and on Tuesday afternoon, Dugans offered another top standout from the area.

Atlantic Coast High School cornerback Stepheny Durham has over 20 scholarship offers and picked up the latest from the Cardinals.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Durham is ranked as the No. 79 cornerback in the country, according to Scout.com.

Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt appear to be his favorites.


Another new offer recently went out to Niles, Ohio, McKinley High School mammoth offensive lineman Josh Krok.

The 6-foot-9, 300-pound Krok told Scout.com he has offers from U of L, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Akron, Toledo, Ball State, Miami of Ohio, Ohio U. and Kent State. He has also heard from UCLA and Ohio State.

Krok said he made a visit to Cincinnati last week and expects to make visits to U of L and West Virginia in the coming weeks.

"The campus atmosphere is important to me," he told Scout. "Also, I want to major in criminal justice so I want my school that have that department. I'll consider distance from home. I hate car rides so I'd like to be a little close to home."


U of L has also recently offered an under-the-radar defensive end from Palm Bay, Fla., Bayside – Tomell One.

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound One also has offers from Florida Atlantic, Florida A&M, Florida International, South Alabama and Forham.
