A pair of top prospects from the state of Ohio - Tresean Smith and Jarell White - made unofficial visits to the University of Louisville last week. Both prospects recap visits to U of L.

The University of Louisville football staff is hoping to get more active recruiting the state of Ohio in the Class of 2017.

The Cardinals have offered a bunch of the top prospects from the state, including a pair of kids that made it to campus last week for unofficial visits - TreSean Smith and Jarell White

Smith is a 6-foot-3, 180-pound safety and White is a 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back. Both prospects are three-star prospects and teammates at Cincinnati LaSalle High School.

Smith is ranked as the No. 8 safety prospect in the Midwest and was making his second trip to U of L. He said he also has visits to Penn State and West Virginia schedule for this weekend and is up to 11 offers.

As a junior, Smith had seven interceptions and was named second-team All-Conference at LaSalle.

"It was great to get there and see more," Smith said of the visit. "Now, I love it even more. The coaches believe I can come in there early and have a major impact. I had a great time."

White, who played a lot of defensive back as a junior, has 11 offer but doesn't hold one from U of L. He's also looking at Michigan State, Illinois, Purdue, Kentucky and others.

"It was great and I really like the coaches," White said. "I really like academically and how they take care of their players."

White indicated with an offer the Cardinals would be in his top five.
