"I hear from Coach Whitt a lot," said Hobbs. "I really like him. He talked to Coach Petrino and the running backs coach about me and said that they both like what they see in me."
Hobbs, who also plays safety, told ITV that the correspondence from the Louisville staff indicated that they were most interested in him playing in the backfield.
So would he accept a scholarship offer from the Cardinals staff during his visit if one was extended? "I haven't thought about it to much, but I would probably accept it while there," said Hobbs.
As a junior at Straughn, Hobbs rushed for 1,547 yards and 16 touchdowns on 238 carries, an average of 6.5 per carry. He also pulled in 18 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown.
He's also an excellent student (3.8 GPA, 23 ACT) and is already fully qualified.
