Austin Cummins is currently a Louisville commitment

Stevenson, Ala., North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins, who committed to Louisville in March, is strongly considering another Bluegrass program

Stevenson, Ala., North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins, who committed to Louisville in March, recently caught up with Scout.com Recruiting Analyst John Garcia Jr., following a practice for the Alabama v Mississippi All-Star game.

Cummins, a three-star recruit, was one of 40 players selected to Alabama's squad. 

"It's competitive, it's physical, but it's a great experience because you are going against the best players in Alabama," he said.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound prospect committed to Louisville over scholarship offers from Southern Miss and Western Kentucky, as well as interest from a host of others, but as National Signing Day gets closer Cummins anticipates taking multiple official visits.

"I'm going to take my officials where I can take them," he told Garcia. "I'm going to take as many as I can."

While committed to the Cardinals, Cummins does remain slightly open on his future school and currently favors a pair of Bluegrass programs.

"Western Kentucky is definitely number two," he said. "I'm still committed to Louisville, but it's between them and Western Kentucky right now."

His final decision will come down to a number of factors, including how each program projects him and how soon he could see the field.

"How they're going to use me," he explained. "When I'm going to useful. Basically if I'm going to fit in there or not."

Cummins is the top-rated tight end in Alabama and is among the Top 20 in the South Region.
