Louisville busy in Buckeye State

The University of Louisville assistant Chris Klenakis visited Springfield, Oh., on extended a scholarship offer to five prospects before leaving town.

Always preparing for the future, the University of Louisville coaching staff continues to hit the recruiting trail in search of the top prospects in multiple classes.

U of L assistant Chris Klenakis spent much of Wednesday visiting high schools in Ohio, including a stop at Springfield High School, about 45 minutes west of Columbus. His purpose was to personally express the level of interest that the Cardinals program has for five players on the roster.

Offensive tackle Darius Harper and defensive tackle Kordell Looney, both 2016 prospects, added scholarship offers from Louisville during Klenakis' visit at the school. Harper, a 6-foot-8, 260-pound three-star prospect also holds offers multiple offers including Power 5 invitations from Illinois, Maryland and Pittsburgh. Looney, who has extended a verbal commitment to Kentucky, also has offers from Bowling Green, Kent State, Illinois, Miami (Oh.) and Toledo.

Wide receiver Danny Davis, a member of the Class of 2017, also added a Louisville offer, as did Class of 2018 prospects Antwuan Johnson, an inside linebacker, and athlete Leonard Taylor.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Davis also has offers from Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Michigan State, with Cincinnati, Ohio State and others expressing early interest. U of L joins Kentucky in offering both Johnson and Taylor.
