Louisville is recruiting and hosted the son of former first round NFL Draft pick Ray Agnew

The University of Louisville football staff hosted the son of a former NFL first round draft pick last week. Defensive lineman Keenan Agnew recaps his visit to Louisville and updates his recruiting process.

The University of Louisville football staff has been hosting a ton of top prospects in recent weeks, including the son of a former first-round pick in the NFL Draft who played in the league for more than 10 years.

Defensive lineman Keenan Agnew, the son of former Rams lineman Ray Agnew, made the trip from St. Louis last week and attended a Louisville practice with his father.

"I thought my visit was awesome," the younger Agnew said. "The facilities were great, and I was really impressed on how energetic practice was.

"I also had great conversations with members of the coaching staff including coach (Bobby) Petrino even though I only got to speak to him for a short time. Overall, it was a great experience for me and my family."

The 6-foot-1, 250-pound Agnew plays defensive line at De Smet Jesuit School in St. Louis. He said he's also hearing from North Carolina State, Duke, Southern Illinois, Missouri State, SE Missouri State, Illinois State, Buffalo, Northern Iowa and a few Ivy League schools.

The younger Agnew said he's hoping for his first offer "sometime soon."

Agnew's father was the 10th overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He played 11 years in the NFL, including five with the Patriots, three with the New York Giants and the rest with the Rams. He was a key player on the 1999 Super Bowl championship team.

Ray Agnew III was a standout at De Smet before playing at Southern Illinois. He's been a fullback with the Cleveland Browns in 2014 and was with the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins last season.
