The University of Louisville football staff had several quarterbacks attend Junior Day last week, including a top signal caller from the state of Arkansas.
Little Rock, Ark., Catholic High School quarterback Andre Sale had a stellar junior season and has seen his recruiting interest rise.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Sale is still looking for his first scholarship offer but has a ton of schools interested, including the University of Louisville.
Sale, who said he knew of U of L head coach Bobby Petrino from his days at Arkansas, made a visit to the Cardinals last weekend and spent time at Junior Day. He also was one of the recruits to attend the U of L vs. Virginia basketball game.
"I loved it," Sale said. "All the coaches were great and the place is great. They gave my dad and me a great experience."
Sale was named a 7-A first-team All-Conference performer in Arkansas. He also has interest from Arkansas, Arkansas State, LSU, Vanderbilt, Oklahoma State, Memphis, Missouri, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern and Florida State.
He's also been on unofficial visits to Arkansas and Vandy.
Sale said he hasn't been in contact with the U of L staff for too long but was "really interested" in chatting with Petrino and offensive coordinator Garrick McGee.
"I know all about coach Petrino and coach McGee through their work at Arkansas," he said. "Petrino came in and took that program to a high level. I loved the way he and coach McGee worked with (Ryan) Mallett and (Tyler) Wilson.
"I think I have a lot of the same traits as Tyler Wilson and would be a great fit in the offense.
Sale said he will keep in contact with the coaches and hopes to make another trip to Louisville.
