With one scholarship left for the Class of 2016, the University of Louisville football staff is turning over every stone.
And that led the Cardinals to Linwood Foy.
The 6-foot-5, 275-pound offensive tackle from College of the Canyons said it's "happening really fast," but he's coming to Louisville on Thursday for an official visit after contacted by U of L recruiting director Dave Boller.
"Coach Boller contacted me a month or so ago and I sent my transcripts," Foy said. "But then it went quiet and I didn't think anything about it. About a week ago, he contacted me and started talking again.
"It was a shocker to me. I didn't expect Louisville to come my way."
A native of Los Angeles, Foy played volleyball, basketball and football at St. Genevieve High School, a small private school in Panorama City, Calif. He had Division I interest as a basketball player but opted to play football.
Foy played defensive end until prior to last season - his sophomore season - at College of the Canyons. But he made the switch to the offensive line and said he's "really glad he did it."
"(The coaches) asked me and I tried it out for two weeks and liked it," Foy said. "I just stuck with it and I am glad I did."
Foy said the U of L staff likes him because of his athleticism. He said the coaches have told him he "has a huge upside," because of how athletic he is and how he's only played line for one year.
"I'm very coachable," Foy said. "I like to get dirty on the field, I like to take care of business."
Foy said he is learning more about the U of L program but did know they "have a Heisman (Trophy) candidate at quarterback and I sure would love to block for him," he noted talking about Lamar Jackson.
