Cornelius Sturghill was all set on his college, committing to Wisconsin in the middle of January after making a visit.
But once the University of Louisville started calling Sturghill and floating the idea of him playing wide receiver, the Memphis Melrose standout said he "couldn't pass it up."
So the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Sturghill changed his mind after a visit to U of L in the days leading up to signing day and last Wednesday signed with the Cardinals.
"I can't wait to get there," he said. "The staff really did a great job, I talked to them when they were at Western Kentucky. I just liked them and I liked (playing offense).
"Being able to play wide receiver was big for me. I feel like I can play either side of the ball, but I wanted to play offense."
Sturghill said Wisconsin was recruiting him for defense. He had almost a dozen offers.
A speedy, physical receiver, Sturghill had 51 catches for 961 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior. He earned 5-A all-state honors at wide receiver after leading the Golden Wildcats to an 8-4 record one year after finishing 0-10.
Sturghill said he's pumped to play for the Cardinals and said the fans will soon get to know him as a "hard-working player who goes out there and plays with a lot of confidence."
