Henderson Co. OL makes 'fun' trip to U of L

Mason Wolfe, perhaps the top in-state lineman in the Class of 2015, checked out Louisville on Sunday. Wolfe made an unofficial visit to the U of L campus a day after stopping in Lexington. Cardinal Authority has the latest.

Mason Wolfe, who said he wants to stay close to home for college, checked out two in-state programs this past weekend.

The Henderson County High School senior-to-be went to Kentucky on Saturday and spent Sunday at Louisville, checking out the Cardinals.

"It was a lot of fun," Wolfe said. "It was my first time there with the new staff, the first time I had a chance to talk to them."

The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Wolfe has an offer from UK and said the U of L coaches told him they would be watching him in the coming months.

Wolfe said he's also heard from Purdue and California and said he "hopes to learn more about" new U of L coach Bobby Petrino.

"I talked with the new offensive line coach (Chris Klenakis) and he said he watched my film and liked what he saw so far," Wolfe said.

Wolfe said he is hoping not to go very far from his home in Western Kentucky.

"I'd like to stay close to home," he said. "It's not like I wouldn't look, but I want to stay close if I can."
