University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz and his staff used the huge football game last weekend against Florida State as a big recruiting weekend, including a couple of in-state commitments.
The Cardinals had Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall and Mercer County junior Seygan Robins - who both committed to the Cardinals late in the summer - made unofficial visits to campus.
The two future U of L players spent time with the U of L staff and watched the Cardinals whip the Seminoles in football.
An All-State performer at Bullitt East High School, Duvall at one time was committed to Kentucky but backed off that commitment and then picked the Cardinals over Michigan. She said the visit was "awesome."
"I love being with them," Duvall said. "The players are so much fun to be around and so goofy.
"And the coaches always make me feel welcomed. It was a lot of fun."
Duvall, who missed a portion of her junior season following the removal of a tumor near her left knee, averaged 18.7 point and eight rebounds in seven outings as a junior. She is rated among the nation's top point guards and is a top 50 prospect.
Robins picked the Cardinals over Kentucky when she committed in July. She is also a top prospect nationally and said her trip back to campus was "a whole lot of fun."
"It was a lot of fun, especially hanging with the team and also future teammates," Robins said. "It was also a great game and the atmosphere was incredible."
Robins was a first-team All-State pick as a sophomore, averaging 16.2 points a game and leading Mercer County to the semifinals of the Kentucky Sweet 16.
