Alabama tight end Austin Cummins flirted with other schools, ends up signing with Louisville on Wednesday

Austin Cummins, the No. 1 ranked tight end in the state of Alabama, signed with the University of Louisville on Wednesday. He had been committed to Louisville since last March but did look at other schools.

Stevenson, Ala., North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins had several other schools inquire in recent months and he did listen. But on Wednesday the No. 1 tight end in the state of Alabama signed with the University of Louisville.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Cummins said the official visit all but sealed the deal for him.

"I just loved it at Louisville; everything about it," Cummins said. "I felt like I was at home and I'm excited to get back there and be part of coach (Bobby) Petrino's offense. I love how they use the tight end."

Cummins, a three-star prospect who was selected to the 40-man Alabama All-Star team that participated in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game, caught 11 passes for 225 yards and four touchdowns as a senior. He also had 28 tackles, including two sacks, and blocked a kick.
