'17 OL from Kansas visits Louisville

The University of Louisville picked up a commitment on Monday and also had a top 2017 prospect from Kansas in on an unofficial visit. Overland Park, Kan., Blue Valley lineman Kirrian Kirby stopped by U of L's campus and checked it out.

Kirrian Kirby said he's starting to get his name out there.

A 2017 offensive line prospect who played last season at Wake Forest, N.C., High School, Kirby will attend Overland Park, Kan., Blue Valley this coming season and is hearing from a bunch of colleges, including Louisville.

Kirby said he has been talking to the Cardinals for a while. His father - Scott - played at Arizona State in the 1980s when U of L director of on campus recruiting was the director of football operations for the Sun Devils.

"They spoke to my dad and asked if we could stop by," Kirby said. "I really liked the campus a lot. It was a nice place."

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Kirby said he's still waiting on his first offer but noted that he's hearing more and more from schools.

"My name is starting to get out," Kirby said.
