Michael Hobbs talks about visit to Louisville

Running back Michael Hobbs made an unofficial visit to Louisville on August 8th & 9th. The talented back spoke with ITV on Sunday night about his time on campus.

Michael Hobbs (5'10, 185) of Straughn High School in Andalusia, Alabama made Louisville his first unofficial visit when he traveled to the River City on August 8th & 9th. While visiting he was able to observe the Cardinals practice, meet with the coaches, visit the campus and tour the football facilities.

"I really liked it, I was impressed," said Hobbs of his visit. "I was shocked when I walked into the facilities and saw how nice they are."

During my conversation with the talented back it became apparent that he was impressed with his entire visit, which included a visit to the dorms.

"I really like the way they run practice," continued Hobbs. "They seem to have the attitude that they won't put up with crap, which I like."

Hobbs, who also plays safety, informed ITV that the coaching staff considers him a running back first. "Coach Whitt said it was a possibility to play safety, but said they like me as a running back. I do like running back better, but I'd play either position. I just want the opportunity to play."

As a junior he rushed for 1,547 yards and 16 scores on just 238 carries. He also pulled in 16 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown.

While the Cardinals have yet to extend an offer to Hobbs, he did tell ITV that Louisville "is at the top" of his list. Southern Miss, Alabama, Middle Tennessee State and Auburn are a few of the other programs that have expressed an interest.

While he says that he isn't in a hurray to commit, he said that he would most likely commit if the Cardinals offered.
