Cincinnati Elder tight end Devin Pike said recently he had narrowed his list in the recruiting process to five schools.

On Saturday, Pike made his commitment.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Pike picked the University of Louisville over Virginia, Illinois, Minnesota and Boston College. He made a commitment to the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon.

A visitor several times to the U of L campus, Pike said he was "been impressed," with the school and the coaches.

"I like Louisville a lot," he said in a recent interview. "It's close to home, it's a great place with good coaches and they're going into the ACC."

Pike is the younger brother of former Cincinnati quarterback Tony Pike. He played his freshman year at Reading High School and then sat out a year after transferring to Elder.

Pike had 25 receptions for 278 yards in seven games last season at Elder.

Louisville now has 21 commitments in the Class of 2014.
