The University of Louisville football staff has had a lot of success recruiting the state of Georgia in recent years.
The Cardinals' staff is hoping to land a few more in the Class of 2017.
Fairburn, Ga., Langston Hughes linebacker Malik Horton is one of the targets from the Peach State with an offer from the Cardinals and he attended Louisville's Light Up The Ville camp on Friday night.
"I really enjoyed it there," said Horton, who made the trip with his mother. "I felt like I did a good job rushing off the edge. I know I could have covered a little better than I did - I wasn't at my best - but I still think overall I did just fine."
Horton has 20 offers to his credit, including Louisville, Maryland, Missouri, Colorado, Toledo, Western Kentucky, Western Carolina, UAB and others, while also getting interest from Duke, Oklahoma and Mississippi State among others.
"The coaches (at Louisville) said they really liked me for my size and athleticism," he said. "They wanted me to keep in touch with them and hoped that I would come back for a game."
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Horton said he's intrigued by the U of L offer and also noted he would visit Maryland and Missouri in the next two weeks. He had 150 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and scored two defensive touchdowns as a junior.
