Culver still a 'strong' commit to U of L

Tallahassee, Fla., Godby defensive back De'Eric Culver made his official visit to the University of Louisville over the weekend. He had his questions answered and is still committed to the Cardinals despite an upcoming visit.

Tallahassee, Fla., Godby cornerback De'Eric Culver had plenty of questions for the new coaching staff at the University of Louisville on his official visit this weekend.

Culver said the staff went above and beyond answering all of his questions and showing him all about the Cardinals' program.

"It was a great weekend," Culver said. "I had questions about who my coach was going to be, how they would use me, the direction of the program, just a lot of stuff I wanted to talk about."

Culver, who said he is visiting California next weekend and has a few other options, came away from his visit "still a strong commitment," to the Cardinals.

When asked if he expected to sign with U of L on the Feb. 5 signing day, Culver responded "Yes, I sure do."

"They said they like how I play corner, they like my physicality and how I can cover in man-to-man," Culver said. "I like a lot of the things they had to say, and the city and school is still great. The atmosphere is great and the win and just work hard atmosphere."

Culver said it was also a "big plus" that former Florida State star and NFL cornerback Terrell Buckley would be his position coach.

"Everybody (in Tallahassee) knows who is he," Culver said. "I knew of him, a lot. He's a great guy and I had fun talking to him."

The 6-foot, 180-pound Culver said in all he was "very please," with the weekend visit.

"I am very happy with Louisville and the new coaches," he said. "I am still committed to them."
