Wisconsin TE makes visit to Louisville

Germantown, Wis., High tight end Conner Edmonds is making three visits this week and started his tour with a stop at the University of Louisville on Wednesday. Edmonds will also visit Indiana and Ball State on his trip through the Midwest.

University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino loves to use the tight end position in his offense and it didn't take long for Conner Edmonds to figure that out.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound from Germantown, Wisc., High watched U of L's spring football on Wednesday and said he "really liked" what he saw from the Cardinals.

"Oh yeah, they really use the tight end," he said. "I really liked it. Louisville was a great place. We got to see the campus, facilities and the dorms.

"It was a really good visit."

Edmonds recently picked up his first offer - Cornell - and said he's also hearing a lot from Bowling Green, Illinois, Northwestern and Wyoming.

An athletic tight end in a spread offense in high school, Edmonds grew up just a few hours from the Wisconsin campus and is a fan of the Badgers. He was named all-conference as a junior after 10 catched for 278 yards and three touchdowns.

Edmonds said he was the only underclassmen among the five players who were the leading receivers for Germantown. He said the other four will play college football.

After watching U of L practice, Edmonds spent some time with the U of L staff and said he was invited to camp this summer. He's hoping to be able to make the trip back.

"They said stay in touch," he said. "They want me to come back down and I liked it a lot, so I want to try and get back."
