Louisville will host about a dozen visitors this weekend, including three junior college prospects

The University of Louisville football staff will host around 12 official visitors this weekend, including three junior college prospects. The Cardinals will host two JUCO defensive standouts - London Iakopo and Kapri Doucet - and offensive lineman Paul Ramirez.

The University of Louisville football team had two junior college standout players - defensive end Chris Williams and cornerback Ronald Walker - enroll in classes last week.

But the recruitment of JUCO players is not over for the U of L staff.

Three junior college standouts will be among about a dozen official visitors to the Cardinals' campus this weekend. The visitors are expected to arrive on Saturday and stay through Monday since it's a holiday weekend.

"Yes sir, I'll be there," Long Beach City College safety London Iakopo confirmed.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Iakopo is currently committed to Arizona and will have three years to complete two when he enrolls at a school. Iakopo is a physical, hard-hitting safety who had a solid season at Long Beach.

Iakopo racked up 58 tackles, two sacks, 7.5 tackles for a loss, forced a fumble, blocked three kicks and collected two interceptions to earn first team all-conference honors during his second season at Long Beach.

Lackawanna College linebacker Kapri Doucet will also make his visit to U of L this weekend before heading to Oklahoma next week. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Doucet had been committed to Arizona but backed off that commitment to the Wildcats after a coaching staff shake up.

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.

San Bernardino offensive tackle Paul Ramirez will also make a visit to Louisville this weekend. The 6-foot-7, 295-pound Ramirez was named first team CCCAA All-American honors and now has 15 offers.

Ramirez has already taken a visit to New Mexico and is also expected to visit Indiana and maybe Arizona State.
