Tucker, Ga., outside linebacker Tabarius Peterson picked the University of Louisville for a number of reasons.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Peterson picked the Cardinals because of the style of defense, an opportunity to play as a freshman and the style of coaching he'll get from defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.
And then when he looked at the U of L roster he smiled.
"I know a lot of those names," Peterson said of the Georgia natives on the U of L roster. "I don't know any of them except Aaron Epps, who just graduated. But I know a lot of the names and have played against a couple of guys.
"I'm really excited to be part of it now. I think we're going to do some special things."
A three-star prospect, Peterson had a sensational senior season. He said other schools tried to get involved but "I just liked Louisville. I can't wait to get there. I'm down for the team, whatever I need to do."
