JUCO CB enjoyed Louisville visit

Garden City (N.Y.) Nassau Community College cornerback Rasul Douglas was among the large group of recruits that made an official visit with Louisville over the weekend. Cardinal Authority has an update on the three-star prospect

The University of Louisville football made the regular season's final home game a priority weekend for recruiting. The coaching staff hosted 10 prospects on official visits and a few dozen others for unofficial visits.

Among the group of those making the longer and much more involved official visit was Garden City (N.Y.) Nassau Community College cornerback Rasul Douglas.

The three-star target collected an impressive list of scholarship offers throughout the recruiting process. Florida, Florida State, Illinois, Louisville, Rutgers, West Virginia and Utah State were among those extending an offer.

Prior to tripping to Louisville this weekend, he made an unofficial visit with Rutgers and an official with West Virginia.

"Those are the only one's I'm really thinking about," he told Cardinal Authority.

During his official visit with the Cardinals program, he was able to tour the campus, football facilities and living areas.

"I really liked the dorms," he said. "Those are real nice. You don't even have to go outside if you want to go to the store to get something to eat.

"I saw all of the campus. It was real nice."

Douglas also spent time visiting with the U of L coaching staff before departing for home on Sunday.

"I met with all of the coaches," he explained. "I met with Coach Petrino for awhile before I left. He was telling me how he wants me and that I can make a difference, but that he won't give me my time and that I have to earn it. He said that he'll give me the reps in practice to earn a chance to play. I liked that."

Douglas hopes to announce his college decision in the coming weeks.

"I would say that I'll know what school I'll go to by the end of this week," he said.

Douglas didn't name a favorite among his trio of finalists of Louisville, Rutgers and West Virginia.

He will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2014 football season.
