ASA College offensive lineman Kelby Johnson committed to Louisville during his official visit this weekend.
"I ended up committing," he told Cardinal Authority. "It feels good. I knew during the visit that this is a place that is going in the right direction and that it was something that I wanted to be a part of."
The 6-foot-9, 310-pound JC All-Conference selection also visited Kansas and South Florida. Connecticut, East Carolina, Kentucky and Ole Miss were also considered.
"These visits weren't a vacation for me," Johnson explained. "They were business trips for me. Louisville had everything that I was looking for. They are a lot of great things happening there and I was to be a part of a place that is winning games and championships."
Johnson spent two seasons at Virginia, including a few starts at tackle as a true freshman, before transferring to ASA.
"I know I can compete for a starting spot no matter where I go though," Johnson told Scout.com last week. "I can play at that level. I played as a true freshman in the ACC and held my own."
His decision was welcome news for the the Cardinals coaching staff.
"They welcomed me," Johnson said. "Coach K was very ecstatic, but he's that kind of guy. The offensive line coach told Petrino, who said that it made his day."
Johnson has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
