Louisville signee P.J. Blue checked out his future teammates on Saturday at the Cardinals' spring game; Blue arrives on campus May 29

The University of Louisville hosted more than a dozen signees from the Class of 2016, including P.J. Blue, at the spring game on Saturday. Blue is a linebacker/safety prospect from Montgomery, Ala., Park Crossing High School.

P.J. Blue was excited to watch his future teammates on Saturday.

And the University of Louisville signee wasn't disappointed at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium during the Cardinals' spring game. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Blue was all smiles as the Cardinals' first-team defense was on the field.

"That's fun to watch," Blue said. "The first team played so well.

"I'm just so very excited to be part of this team. I can't wait to get there on May 29."

Blue, a star from Montgomery, Ala., Park Crossing High School, was ranked as the No. 17 safety prospect in the South by Scout.com, but could also be a candidate to play some linebacker.

After he signed in February, U of L defensive coordinator Todd Grantham called him a "guy we can do a lot of things with on the field."

Blue was originally committed to South Carolina, but flipped in December and then the Cardinals had to hold off Oklahoma - who made a late bid for his signature - just before signing day.

In his first season at Park Crossing as a senior, Blue had 67 tackles, two interceptions and six pass deflections as a safety for the Thunderbirds. He was named to the All-State team and was selected to play in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star game.

Blue attended the spring game with his Park Crossing teammate - Malik Cunningham. The latter is a quarterback in the '17 class who made a verbal commitment to U of L on Saturday.
