Greene's list also includes, UCLA, Maryland, Central Florida, West Virginia, Nebraska and Texas A&M. He's an electric wide receiver with a lot of speed and great hands.


Tennessee DT has Louisville in top seven

Nashville, Tenn., Hillsboro defensive tackle Ben Hutch has narrowed his list to seven and Louisville made the cut.

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Hutch recently made an unofficial visit to U of L and is close friends with current Louisville commitment Rodney Owens of Nashville, Tenn., Ensworth.

Top 2018 LBer camps at Louisville

Highstown, N.J. The Peddie School 2018 linebacker Javar Garrett spent time at Louisville camp last weekend and the staff spent a lot of time watching and chatting with the potential star.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Garrett already has offers from Indiana, Rutgers, Monmouth and Temple with likely plenty more on the way.

Garrett, who also camped at Penn State this week, was impressive in one-on-one drills against the wide receivers.

"They haven't offered yet but coach (Todd) Grantham told be ready for the call in the next few days," Garrett said, "I feel like I performed really well and especially with covering the wide receivers in the stadium."


Tennessee '18 OL makes visit

Cordova, Tenn., St. Benedict's 2018 offensive lineman Jerome Carvin made an unofficial visit to Louisville on Tuesday with several other prospects from the state of Tennessee.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Carvin claims an offer from U of L and said the Cardinals are his early favorite.

Tennessee OL strong at U of L camp

Corryton, Tenn., Gibbs 2018 lineman Dalton Widner was impressive last weekend at U of L's camp.

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Widner was a standout on a day when the U of L staff had several recruitable linemen on campus working out. He was very solid in one-on-one drills with the defensive line and moves well for a big kid.

Widner said he doesn't have an offer yet but said he has several smaller schools talking about an offer.

"I have a lot of schools showing interest in me," Widner said.
