The 6-foot-6, 200-pound Beneventi then came to U of L's Passing Camp in June and the Cardinals seemed high on his list.
But then head coach Charlie Strong accepted a fall commitment from Ross Trail - another 2015 quarterback prospect - and in December Beneventi committed to play at Iowa.
Now, things have changed a bit.
Beneventi said he's still committed to Iowa at this point but on Tuesday he picked up an offer from the new staff at U of L and said he's intrigued to take a closer look at the Cardinals.
"I visited Louisville when coach Strong was there and I loved it," Beneventi said. "I want to go back and see it again."
Beneventi said he's also heard from Pittsburgh and is expecting to camp at Texas this summer. He's a four-star on Scout.com and ranks as the No. 19 quarterback in the '15 class.
But he said U of L is a school he also wants to see and will take a close look at.
"I want to visit again to meet the new staff and my family and I love Louisville," he said. "We would stay there when I was you get on our way to my grandparents house in Atlanta so it's special to have this opportunity."
As a sophomore, Beneventi passed for 2,388 yards and 20 TDs while leading Benet to 11 wins. Last season, Benet Academy finished 6-4 with Beneventi completing 134 of 246 for 1,482 yards and seven touchdowns.
