A look at a few recruiting notes from the Louisville football program; updates on a few prospects

A look at a few recruiting notes from the University of Louisville football program; updates on a few prospects.

Louisville offers Arizona commitment

The University of Louisville has extended a scholarship offer to Arizona commitment Jalen Harris, an athlete who can play defensive end from Mesa, Ariz., Desert Ridge High School.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Harris had 15 offers when he committed to Arizona in early August.

Harris is considered the No. 1 athlete in the state of Arizona and checks in at No. 55 nationally among athletes. He's the son of former Arizona All-American middle linebacker Sean Harris.

Louisville entertains Cincy DE

Cincinnati St. Xavier defensive end Blake Bacevich made the trip down I-71 last weekend for the Louisville game against Wake Forest.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Bacevich said he enjoyed his unofficial visit.

He has also been to a game at Cincinnati and is hearing from Miami of Ohio, Ohio University and Michigan State among others.

"(Louisville) was great," he said. "It was an awesome atmosphere."

Bacevich said he chatted with recruiting guys Dave Boller and Pete Nochta and also had a chance to chat a bit with Louisville defensive line coach L.D. Scott, who invited him back to campus.

"Coach Scott said it was good to have me up and hope that I enjoy it," he said. "They told me to make sure I keep sending them film and to stay in contact. It was a really cool visit, it was awesome the amount of fans that came out."

Louisville still in contact with Moore

Trinity junior wide receiver Rondale Moore said he hasn't been too worried about recruiting in recent weeks.

Moore was just ruled eligible recently and made his first appearance on the field last week, catching three passes for 111 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout win over Louisville Eastern.

Moore was expected at U of L's game against Wake Forest but said he had some studies that kept him from attending.

"Academics come first for me," he said.

Moore said U of L remains in contact and he's been hearing from Notre Dame, Duke and North Carolina recently. He already has offers from Kentucky, Indiana and Central Michigan.

DT to visit next weekend

Louisville is likely to have several official visitors next weekend, including Itawamba Community College standout Lee Autry.

The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Autry is committed to Mississippi State and is the younger brother of former Mississippi State defensive end Denico Autry, who plays for the Oakland Raiders.
