Fenton visits Louisville; a decision coming?

Miami Carol City High School cornerback Rashad Fenton made an official visit to the University of Louisville this weekend and will make his college decision on Wednesday. Fenton will pick either U of L, Florida or South Carolina on national signing day.

Miami Carol City High School standout cornerback Rashad Fenton knows he has a tough decision to make in the next few days.

And the 5-foot-11, 175-pound three-star prospect said the decision got even tougher after a "very good" official visit to the University of Louisville this weekend.

Fenton will pick between U of L, Florida and South Carolina.

"It's going to be really, really tough," he said. "I have to sit down and really think about things. Louisville was nice. I liked it a lot and really liked the coaches.

"So, it's going to be tough."

Fenton is ranked as the No. 119 cornerback in the country and listed by Scout.com as the No. 20 corner in the state of Florida.

With Louisville, Fenton said looking at what the Cardinals did on defense in the secondary last season was "very impressive." The Cardinals had 26 interceptions last season in the first year under defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who earlier this week turned down the same position with the Oakland Raiders.

"They had a high percentage of interceptions and I really liked the defense," Fenton said. "The coaches there are great. The school is nice, it's big but still small enough to let me get some attention (in class) if I need it. I liked it."

Fenton called off a visit to Auburn this week and instead made the trip to Louisville and noted that he was "really glad" he did that.

As a senior, Fenton had 50 tackles, five interceptions and returned six kickoffs or punts touchdowns for Carol City.
