Cards offer Lake Nona, Fla., athlete

The University of Louisville football coaches are back on the road recruiting and the Cardinals are the latest to make an offer to Lake Nona, Fla., athlete Mehdi El Attrach. Cardinal Authority has the latest on his recruitment.

The University of Louisville football program's success recruiting in the state of Florida has been well documented.

The Cardinals are recruiting a bunch of prospects from the Sunshine State in the Class of 2015 including the latest new offer.

And that would be Mehdi El-Attrach, an athlete who is a transfer from Orlando Freedom to Orlando Lake Nona High School. El-Attrach can play wide receiver or in the secondary.

The 6-foot, 188-pound El-Attrach has offers from Northwestern, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Duke, East Carolina, Florida International and others. He's also heard from Florida State and Georgia Tech among several others.

"I just like to play football," El-Attrach told Scout.com last month. "It doesn't matter where I play. Offensively, I am a pretty good route runner and more of a possession wide receiver. On defense I can come down and support the run and cover as well."
