Louisville has TE Epps 'doing some thinking'

Arizona Western tight end Raymond Epps is among the top junior college prospects in the nation and was among those making an official visit to Louisville for the Florida State game. Epps, who is committed to Arizona State, gives Cardinal Authority the latest.

Arizona Western College tight end Raymond Epps said he thought he knew what to expect when he traveled to Louisville for his official visit.

But Epps, a current Arizona State commitment, said his time in Louisville which ended on Friday and included watching the U of L-Florida State game on Thursday night was "more than I expected it to be."

"I really enjoyed myself," Epps said. "I was thinking I knew what to expect but it was a lot better than I thought it would be.

"It's given me something that I have to think about."

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound prospect told Cardinal Authority prior to the visit that he was "100 percent" committed to Arizona State. But now that has changed a bit.

"They put a lot into my mind," Epps said. "So, I just have to sit down and think about it and talk to my family and make the best decision for me."

When asked it he was considering a flip, Epps said "I don't know right now."

"I don't know how to explain it," he said. "I love (Arizona State) but Louisville was really good. I really liked how they run the offense there."

Epps said the game was "so much fun," and noted the coaches told him there would be immediate playing time available next season at tight end.

He is on pace to graduate on December and enroll in January.

Epps said he's not sure if he will take any other visits before making a final decision on where he'll attend college.

"We'll see how it plays out," he said. "My dad said I should get out and see some places just to be getting away. We will see."
