JUCO DT sets visit to Louisville

Itawamba Community College defensive tackle Lee Autry has been committed to Mississippi State since March but is still listening to several other schools, including the Louisville Cardinals.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Autry is one of the top targets on the defensive line for the Cardinals. He's expected to make a visit to the U of L campus for a game next month.

Autry, the brother of former Mississippi State and current Oakland Raiders defensive end Denico Autry, is originally from Albemarle, N.C. He had been committed to Wake Forest before going to a junior college.

4-star LBer to visit

Loganville, Ga., Grayson four-star linebacker Breon Dixon is expected to make a visit to U of L in December.

A former commitment to Georgia, the 6-foot, 215-pound Dixon has a long list of offers, including TCU, Miami, Michigan, Tennessee, USC, Georgia, Mississippi State, LSU and California.

Dixon will play in the Under Armor All-American Game and is expected to be an early enrollee.

Cards visit top DT target

Louisville defensive line coach L.D. Scott was expected to make a stop in Augusta, Ga., to check out top defensive line target Tyrone Truesdell, a three-star prospect from Laney High School.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Truesdell is the No. 3 ranked defensive tackle in the state of Georgia.

Truesdell made a second trip to Florida last month to attend a game and is expected to make official visits to Louisville, Florida and Ole Miss. He's expected to make the visit to Louisville on Jan. 14.

Top in-state tackle high on U of L

Bowling Green, Ky., South Warren 2019 defensive tackle Jacob Lacey has been to Louisville several times since his first visit for a game last fall, including a trip to the recent win over Florida State.

The 6-foot-1, 290-pound Lacey already has a lot of options but is high on the Cardinals.

"I grew up a Louisville fan, so they are easy for me to like," Lacey said. "I loved it up there and the atmosphere and I can't wait to get back up there and see them again soon."

Lacey already has six offers, including U of L, Notre Dame, Kentucky and Cincinnati.

He said right now he's "still wide open."

Alabama '18 OL checks out Cards

Cullman, Ala., junior offensive lineman Tyler Nunnelley was also a recent visitor to Louisville and said he was "impressed" with the Cardinals. He checked out the Cardinals in the game against Florida State.

"They are high on my list and I had a great time," Nunnelley said.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound Nunnelley has also made trips to Vanderbilt, Memphis, South Alabama and Middle Tennessee.
