A few recruiting notes from the University of Louisville football program, including more offers extended from the Cardinals' staff.

U of L coach visits Poutasi

Las Vegas Desert Pines offensive lineman Poutasi Poutasi committed to the University of Louisville two weeks ago. On Tuesday, Poutasi said he got his first visit since his commitment from one of his future coaches.

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Poutasi said U of L offensive line coach Chris Klenakis stopped by his school.

"We talked about how fired up they are to have me as a Cardinal," Poutasi said. "We didn't talk too long because he watched me work out."

Poutasi, the younger brother of Tennessee Titan offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi, also held offers from UNLV, Nevada, San Diego State, Colorado State and others, with interest rising from Arizona State, Michigan, Utah, Washington and others.
