U of L commitment says visit was 'amazing'

Stevenson, Ala., North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins, who committed to Louisville last month, recently visited the Cardinals' for the spring game. Cummins checked in with Cardinal Authority to update us on his recruitment.

Stevenson, Ala., North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins committed to the University of Louisville last month but other schools have still been recruiting him.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Cummins has been to Vanderbilt's Junior Day and received an offer from Troy since his commitment to the Cardinals.

But after a visit to the U of L Spring Game, Cummins is a solid commitment.

"It was amazing," Cummins said. "I absolutely love everything about it. It was such a great atmosphere and it was only a spring game."

Cummins said he is excited about playing in the Bobby Petrino offense and noted the community support and campus were a "major draw" for him.

"The community is so involved and I love that," he said. "I loved the energy the coaches and players showed throughout the night. And, of course, how welcoming the coaching staff was to me. They already treat me like part of the family."

Cummins said he is "for sure" still committed and firm with the commitment, noting that "I can't wait to get back up there."

Cummins is considered a sleeper in the state of Alabama, which has become a major priority for the U of L staff. The Cardinals have five guys in the Class of 2015 from the state of Alabama. Cummins, who said he knew from the time he left U of L's Junior Day that he was likely going to commit, made the decision after visiting Southern Miss and also considering several other schools, including Florida Atlantic.
