University of Louisville commit Kareem Orr having a great season at Chattanooga (Tenn.) Notre Dame. Playing on both sides of the ball, the 6-foot, 185-pound prospect creates havoc at both wide receiver and defensive back.
“I think my season is going really well,” he told Cardinal Authority on Sunday. “I'm getting double and triple teamed on offense and I'm playing really well on defense.”
Orr claims to not prefer one side of the ball over the other and is being recruited for skills on both. In his discussions with his future coaches, the expectation is that the three-star defensive back will play
“They like that I'm physical and I tackle really well,” he said. “I have good recovery speed.”
Orr had hoped to make the easy 5 hour car ride to visit for Louisville's win over Wake Forest on Saturday, but had to reschedule for another upcoming home contest. He's also planning his official visit for the annual Battle for the Governors Cup.
“I'm going to try to take my official visit for the Kentucky game, but I'm also going to try to get up there for the N.C. State game,” he said.
While a few SEC schools and Indiana from the Big 10 continue to express their interest, Orr remains committed to the Cardinals.
Orr visited U of L for the season-opening win over Miami, describing the trip "as even more than I expected."
As a junior, 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.
He held 15 scholarship offers before committing to Louisville in June.
