Florida CB still committed; wants to visit

The initial feedback from University of Louisville football recruits hasn't been as bad as some expected. Two players have decommitted but many are like De'Eric Culver, waiting and watching to see what coach the Cardinals hire. Cardinal Authority spoke with Culver about his situation.

Tallahassee, Fla., Godby cornerback De'Eric Culver committed to the University of Louisville in May and was "really looking forward to" playing for Charlie Strong beginning next fall with the Cardinals.

Now, Strong has left for Texas but Culver still may come to U of L.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Culver said he wants to see the coaching hire at U of L before making any decisions and still plans on making an official visit.

"I have to do the best thing for me," Culver said. "I want to see who they hire and then see what coaches stick around. I really like Louisville a lot."

Culver said he hopes to still make his official visit on Jan. 17 and is also planning to visit California on Jan. 24 and perhaps Arkansas sometime this month.

He was recruited by wide receiver coach Ron Dugans and said "it's tough and sad, but coach Strong had to do the best thing for him. I just have to see what happens and make the right decision for me."

Jacksonville, Fla., offensive lineman Kavaris Harkless and wide receiver Isaiah Ford are the only two players who have official decommitted from U of L. Harkless enrolled at Florida on Monday.
