U of L commit Orr has 'a blast' at game

Chattanooga, Tenn., Notre Dame two-way star Kareem Orr made a commitment to the University of Louisville in June. On Monday, Orr attended his first game at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. He checks in with Cardinal Authority after his visit.

University of Louisville football commitment Kareem Orr was one of about 20 prospects in the stands on Monday watching the Cardinals beat Miami 31-13 in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

And as Orr said, he was the one grinning from ear-to-ear as the Cardinals rolled.

"I loved every minute of it," Orr told Cardinal Authority. "It all just felt to good and was a blast. I knew it was going to be sold out and fun, but it was even more than I expected.

"It was just the best."

Orr came to the game with his mother and said he "plans on coming back" for a game or two more later in the season.

He committed to U of L in June and plans on signing with the Cardinals in February.

"It was fun watching them and just seeing how I think I fit in," Orr said. "It's the best place for me and I can't wait to get there."

The 6-foot, 190-pound Orr has been a two-way star at Notre Dame for two years and could play either defensive back or wide receiver in college. He said U of L defensive backs coach Terrell Buckley plans on using him on defense.

"That's fine with me," Orr said. "They said corner or safety."

Orr had 15 scholarship offers after a solid junior season. He finished with 1,724 all-purpose yards with 15 touchdowns and had five interceptions. Two of those interceptions were returned for touchdowns. As a sophomore, Orr had 1,105 all-purpose yards with 18 TDs, scoring five different ways - a kick return, a punt return, an interception return, a rush and a pass.

Orr passed for a touchdown, had four tackles and a pass deflection and had seven catches for 109 yards and three touchdowns last week in a 34-20 win over East Ridge.
