Nashville Christian linebacker Daniel Bituli is ranked No. 163 in the Scout300 and is expected to visit along with Framington, Mich., wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick - the No. 275 ranked player who is committed to Louisville.

The other ranked prospect expected is O'Fallon, Ill., running back Kentrail Moran, who checks in as the No. 181 player.

Fitzpatrick committed to Louisville on Oct. 31. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound four-star prospect recently picked up an offer from in-sate Michigan.

His father, Greg, told after a visit to Michigan this week that his son was still committed to the Cardinals.

"He has made no mention of decommitting from Louisville," the father said. "We are attending junior day this Saturday in Louisville."

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Bituli is ranked as the No. 1 linebacker prospect in the state of Tennessee, has a long list of offers including Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Cincinnati, Virginia and Duke.

Moran is a 5-foot-11, 200-pound picked up an offer from U of L several weeks ago after visiting for a game last season. He also holds offers from Michigan, Syracuse, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas and others.
