Lackawanna College linebacker Kapri Doucet confirms he will make a visit to Louisville on Jan. 15

Lackawanna College linebacker Kapri Doucet - who de-committed from Arizona earlier this week - confirmed to Cardinal Authority that he will make an official visit to Louisville on Jan. 15. Doucet will also visit Oklahoma.

Lackawanna College linebacker Kapri Doucet picked up an offer from the University of Louisville last month after a visit to his school from Cardinals' head coach Bobby Petrino.

Doucet had set up a visit to see Louisville but then committed to Arizona. Now, earlier this week the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Doucet backed off that commitment to the Wildcats after a coaching staff shake up.

He set up a visit for Jan. 22 to Oklahoma and has now confirmed he'll make a visit to Louisville on Jan. 15.

"I will be there," Doucet said. "I might also go to Ohio State, Iowa State or Nebraska, but I know Oklahoma and Louisville for sure."

Doucet said he was impressed with Petrino when the head coach came to his school. The Cardinals finished 8-5 and return most of its defense, but is looking to add another linebacker to the mix for next season.

"Coach Petrino is the biggest reason," Doucet said of why he likes Louisville. "I really like him as a coach. I like his program a lot."

Doucet said he would make his final decision after his visits but "before signing day" on Feb. 3.

Doucet, a native of Williamsburg, Va., had 59 tackles, six sacks, two fumble recoveries and one interception in nine games this season as a sophomore at Lackawanna. He returned the interception for a touchdown and one of the fumble recoveries for a TD.

Lackawanna College safety Kyzir White, who is committed to West Virginia, is also expected to visit U of L on Jan. 15.
