Louisville has offered and will likely get a visit from current South Carolina RB commitment CJ Freeman

The University of Louisville football team is searching for a running back in the Class of 2016 and the latest scholarship offer is out to a South Carolina commitment. The Cardinals offered Greensboro, N.C., Northern Guilford running back C.J. Freeman.

Greensboro, N.C., Northern Guilford running back C.J. Freeman has been committed to South Carolina since March and said on Tuesday that he was still committed even after Steve Spurrier announced his retirment.

But Freeman said in a statement that he would continue to look at his options.

"Me and my family will decide what's best for my future," Freeman said.

One school that could be in his future to take a closer look at is the University of Louisville. The Cardinals offered Freeman a scholarship last week - before Spurrier announced his retirement - and he's likely to visit Louisville.

"I don't know when, but I'm probably going to visit there yes," Freeman told Cardinal Authority.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Freeman had 2,000 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns and he has 799 yards rushing and nine touchdowns in the first six games of his senior season.

Freeman ranks as the No. 84 running back in the country by Scout.com and checks in at No. 30 in the South.
