With one week left until signing day, the University of Louisville coach staff was out and about on Wednesday visiting a bunch of prospects already committed to the Cardinals.
Defensive coordintor Todd Grantham spent time with U of L commits Malik Staples and Tabarius Peterson.
Staples is a 6-foot, 210-pound running back from Suwanee, Ga., Peachtree Ridge High School and confirmed that Grantham had been to see him and several younger prospects prior to the team's football banquet.
While he had been considered a "soft" commitment by some, Staples confirmed he's "solid" with Louisville after the chat with Grantham and he expects to sign next week. He made his official visit back in December.
Peterson is an outside linebacker from Tucker, Ga., who will visit Louisville this weekend.
"I can't wait," Peterson said. "I've been waiting for this. I didn't take any other visits. (Grantham) and I talked about what we were going to be doing and what to expect and I'm really excited."
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Peterson has been committed since July. He had 42 tackles, including 9 tackles for a loss as a senior.
U of L offensive line coach Chris Klenakis was in Ohio to see wide receiver commit Seth Dawkins, while new secondary coach Keith Heyward was in California to see wide receiver commit Chris Taylor-Yamanoha.
