Amonte Caban of Smith's Station, Ala., committed to the University of Louisville in early September made his official visit with this future team over the weekend.

"It went good, real good," said Caban. "I was able to see a lot."

In addition to checking out the campus, dorms and football facilities, the three-star commitment also experienced what life is also like off campus.

"I seen all the campus and everything was nice," he explained. "We also went to Fourth Street Live and we also checked out the basketball game."

Typically, due to the limited time to spend with recruits during an official visit, the visiting prospects will often leave a basketball game that they are attending at halftime. On Saturday, the group remained until the Cardinals appeared to have control of the game against visiting North Carolina a few minutes into overtime.

"That game was a lot of fun," said Caban, adding that he "really liked" environment at the sold-out KFC Yum! Center.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Caban, who is rated among the top 20 middle linebacker prospects in the nation by, spent time discussing his future while visiting with U of L head coach Bobby Petrino and the defensive coaches.

"They told me that I would be inside for sure," he explained. "I like that."

Caban registered a team-high 157 tackles as a senior. He also drew scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Clemson, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and others.
