McCray visit at U of L went 'awesome'

University of Louisville commitment Jared McCray was one of the visitors to the season-opening win against Ohio University for the Cardinals last weekend. McCray has been committed for four months and will sign with the Cardinals in February. Cardinal Authority has the latest on his visit.

Minford, Ohio, offensive lineman Jared McCray was making his fifth trip to the University of Louisville last weekend.

But it was the first since he committed to the Cardinals.

The 6-foot-5, 322-pound McCray committed to the Cardinals in early May and took in the season-opener against Ohio University on Sunday.

"It was awesome," McCray said. "Last year, I came to a game and when I came to Junior Day it was a basketball game. But this year, being committed it felt a lot different. It was everything I was hoping it would be."

McCray, who held around six offers when committed, said he was able to try and watch the offensive line a little closer during the visit.

Right tackle Nacho Garcia is a player he watched because when he came to a practice "I was really focused in on him."

"The stadium is a great place for a game and the atmosphere was awesome," he said. "I watched Nacho a lot. The line did a great job, you can tell they all work so hard. I can't wait to get there."

McCray said his team is 1-0 on the season after rolling Rock Hill 40-6 in the opener. Minford is a small school with "a chance for a good season."

"I'm excited to get there," McCray said. "I talked to Danny Burns, another lineman commitment, when I was there and met the quarterback, Reggie (Bonnafon). It was good to meet and get to know some of the guys."

U of L has 25 commitments in the Class of 2014.
