Louisville quarterback commitment Tylin Oden, who had been looking elsewhere, says he will likely visit Louisville

With another quarterback commitment on the books, many felt the University of Louisville and Columbia, Tenn., quarterback Tylin Oden would parts ways. But Oden, who has started his senior season strong, considers himself still committed to the Cardinals and said he may end up taking a visit soon to U of L.

Columbia, Tenn., Spring Hill High School quarterback Tylin Oden still considers himself a University of Louisville commitment, even after the July commitment of another quarterback prospect - Jawon Pass.

"Yes sir, a soft commitment," Oden said.

But Oden still hears from the U of L staff at least once a week and has the Cardinals' on his mind a bit.

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound Oden, who has recently visited Oregon and Florida, said there's a good possibility he will be headed to Louisville sometime in the next month or so to take in a Cardinals' football game.

"Yes, there's a good chance," Oden wrote in a text.

Oden had been considered a player who would filp to another school once he heard the news of Pass' commitment. Oden came to U of L the weekend after Pass' commitment for a camp and has since remained firm that he hasn't de-committed.

In a recent interview, Oden said he was "just looking for the right fit."

U of L has four quarterbacks on the current roster and all four are eligible to return next season, but the Cardinals have started three different quarterbacks in three games this season after three QBs won games for the Cardinals' last season.

As a junior, he totaled 1,947 yards of offense with 28 touchdowns. He threw for more than 1,000 yards and rushed for just under 1,000 yards and led Spring Hill to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. He also had just three interceptions.

In four games as a senior, Oden is completing 55.8 percent of his passes for 718 yards and eight TDs with four interceptions. He has also rushed for 485 yards and two TDs on the season.

"I think I've started pretty good, but I plan on finishing extremely strong," Oden said.
