Deerfield Beach, Fla., will visit Louisville on Saturday says Lamar Jackson's play is a big draw for the Cardinals

Deerfield Beach, Fla., wide receiver Leroy Henley will make a visit to the University of Louisville on Saturday for the Florida State game. Henley says Louisville has become more attractive after watching Lamar Jackson play.

Deerfield Beach, Fla., wide receiver Leroy Henley has over 30 scholarship offers, including the University of Louisville.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Henley said he's been recruited by the Cardinals for a while. U of L has been a serious school in the mix of his recruitment, along with West Virginia and Illinois among others.

But after the first two weeks of the season, Henley said he has to take a "much closer" look at Louisville.

"I need to get to know more about them," he said. "I mean the offense they run is great and the person they have running it, he's great.

"Of course, who wouldn't want to play with Lamar Jackson. The numbers he's putting up are ridiculous."

Henley, who said he knew Jackson when he was growing up in South Florida, is also friends with current U of L sophomore wide receiver Devante Peete, who is from the same area. He also said he knew of the Cardinals' long line of Florida stars.

"They've had a lot of guys from here," Henley said.

A three-star prospect, Henley is the No. 67 wide receiver in the country and said he was "very excited" to get to Louisville and see the Cardinals play against Florida State this weekend.

He's expected to make an official visit to the Cardinals in November.
