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.
