Khane Pass 'fully committed' to Louisville

University of Louisville football commitment Khane Pass is set to sign with the Cardinals in February after a visit that his mother called "just awesome." Pass committed to U of L in August but made his official visit this weekend with the Cardinals.

Carver, Ga., Columbus safety Khane Pass made his verbal commitment to the University of Louisville in August and is now set to sign with the Cardinals next month.

Pass reaffirmed his commitment with the Cardinals after a visit this weekend.

"It was just awesome," said Pass' mother, Kershena Thomas. "We enjoyed everything. He is absolutely looking forward to it. He's fully committed to Louisville."

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Pass is a three-star prospect and ranks as one of the top 50 prospects in the state of Georgia. He's the No. 81 safety prospect nationally.

Pass, who was joined on the visit by his mother along with brother, Jawon, and sister, Triniti, had been to campus to visit with the coaches in the summer.

But Thomas said this visit was also very informative."We learned a lot about academics, instruction and the school side on the first visit," Thomas said. "This time, it was a little more of them telling us how they were going to use, athletics and also about social life.

"We loved every minute of it."

Thomas, whose son Jawon is one of the top quarterback prospects in the Class of 2016 and is considering U of L, said she was sold on the program because of the family atmosphere.

"Absolutely, that was one of the highlights for me when we first went there," Thomas said. "As a mother, it made me feel very comfortable. (The staff) actually refers to each other as family. They didn't welcome Khane to the team, they welcomed him into the family.

"They said 'Welcome to the family' and I liked that a lot. I noticed all of that and it's really made me feel comfortable with them."

The younger Pass has narrowed his list to U of L, Alabama, North Carolina, Auburn and Virginia Tech and expects to make a decision soon.

"He really enjoyed his time there too," Thomas said of Jawon.

Khane Pass will sign with the Cardinals on Feb. 4 - national signing day - and is set to enroll at U of L the first week of June.
