Junior college linebacker Kapri Doucet said Louisville visit gives him 'something to think about' before decision

Junior college linebacker Kapri Doucet cut his list of schools to three after a Louisville visit and said the Cardinals gave him "something to think about." He'll make a decision after he visits Oklahoma and Arkansas in the next two weekends.

The University of Louisville made an impression with junior college linebacker Kapri Doucet during a weekend visit. Doucet said after the visit that he has narrowed his list of schools to U of L, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

"They're definitely up there for me," Doucet said. "It was a great visit. I really enjoyed myself and they showed me it's a situation where I can come in and make an impact at linebacker."

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Doucet, who starred at Lackawanna College the past two seasons, said he will visit Oklahoma this weekend and Arkansas on Jan. 29 before making a decision "just after the final visit."

Doucet said Louisville gave him "something to think about" during his visit.

He spent time with U of L head coach Bobby Petrino but was mostly with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and staffer Cort Dennison, who is recruiting while the Cardinals are down an assistant coach. Dennison went to see Doucet on Thursday.

"Coach Grantham, that's my guy," Doucet said. "I really like what he does and the way he coaches. It's an NFL-style defense and you can learn a lot from him. I really like him a whole lot, so I could see myself playing for him."

Doucet said the Cardinals "definitely, for sure," are an option for him.

"I'll just have to see, but I really liked it," he said.

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.

Just before Christmas, Doucet committed to Arizona but re-opened his recruitment after a staff shakeup with the Wildcats.
