Justin Satterfield, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound offensive lineman from Mt. Juliet, Tenn., made the three hour drive north last weekend to attend Louisville's Junior Day. His stop in the Derby City is the latest in what is becoming a busy recruiting process for 2017 prospect.
"He was impressed," his father, Jeremy Satterfield told Cardinal Authority. "He told me that he had a good time and they were able to go to the basketball game, tour the facilities and visit with all the coaches."
The Cardinals began eyeing Satterfield last spring when offensive line coach Chris Klenakis watched him work for a couple days. A return trip for additional evaluation is planned for the rapidly approaching spring.
"Coach K came up last year during spring and watched him for two days," he said. "They told him that they were planning two more trips to come and see him this spring."
Satterfield also attended Junior Day at Alabama, and has attended games as a guest of the program at N.C. State, Western Kentucky and elsewhere.
"He received a Junior Day invite last week to Alabama and Memphis has been in contact just about every day," his father explained. "He's getting letters from just about every ACC school, except for Clemson. There's a lot of interest from ACC schools. As for the SEC schools, Kentucky, Mississippi State, plus Alabama and a couple others."
While his first scholarship offer is still in the making, the interest continues to grow at a rapid pace.
"It is crazy," said Satterfield. "It's exciting to see the interest that he is getting from all the schools. It is overwhelming at times trying to schedule everything."
