Buford, Ga., athlete Anthony Grant was among the near 100 recruits that made an unofficial visit for No. 10 Louisville's home contest against No. 2 Florida State and it should come as no surprise that it left a positive impression.
A four-star prospect and a member of the Scout top 300 for the class of 2018, Grant toured the program's facilities and watched the team warm-up before taking his seat among the record crowd at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. The trip to watch the Cardinals defeat No. 2 Florida State in a key ACC contest would not only be his first trip to U of L, but it was also his first college football game experience.
"Great school, great atmosphere," he told Cardinal Authority. "It was great for my first college game ever. I loved the fan support."
Among the many highlights of the game was the new red chrome helmets that the Cardinals wore against the Seminoles.
"They were sweet," said Grant.
Due to the timing of the game, the visiting prospects time with members of the U of L coaching staff was limited, but he did spend a few minutes with running backs coach Kolby Smith.
"I really like it and would love to go back and visit," he added.
Louisville was the first to extend a scholarship offer to the 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back, with fellow ACC member NC State recently following the Cardinals lead. Georgia, which has received a visit from Grant, is also in the mix.
