Louisville Butler running back Greg Bethel has made multiple visits with the hometown Cardinals, including attending the program's recent Junior Day.
"It was great," he told Cardinal Authority. "I loved it all."
While on his visit, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Bethel, who's cousin Tony suited up for U of L in the 1990s, toured the facilities, attended a basketball game at the KFC Yum! Center and spent time visiting with the U of L coaching staff.
"I was able to see the atmosphere and see how the fans are," he said. "I was able to sit down with the coaches, too. It was a very good visit."
Joining Louisville in expressing early interest is Indiana, Kentucky, Purdue, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and WKU. He's scheduled to attend an upcoming Junior Day at Western Kentucky on February 20.
Bethel, who stated that's he's "dreamed" about staying home to play for the hometown Cardinals, continues to work to attract interest to make certain that he finds the best place for him.
"Staying at home would be great, but I need to also keep getting my film out there," he said.
As a junior, Bethel played in only five games because of an injury but he rushed for 424 yards and five touchdowns. He also had two receiving TDs and averaged seven tackles a game on the defensive side of the ball.
