Largo, Fla., Pinellas Park nose guard Jordon Scott says Louisville chances 'boosted' after a weekend visit to campus

Largo, Fla., Pinellas Park nose guard Jordon Scott says Louisville chances 'boosted' after a weekend visit to campus.

Former Florida commitment Jordon Scott made a visit to the University of Louisville this weekend and said the Cardinals chances of landing him on signing day were "a lot better" after the trip.

"It was way better than I expected," Scott said. "It boosted them way up."

The 6-foot-1, 350-pound Scott, who is the fifth-ranked defensive tackle in the Sunshine State, said there were more than just one reason why the Louisville program has moved up his list.

The Largo, Fla., Pinellas Park High School standout is being recruited by Nick Petrino.

"It was good," Scott said of the visit to U of L. "It was the first one for me and I have Ole Miss coming up this week. It was better than I expected because I was just thinking it would be like every campus I have seen before, but it wasn't.

"Everything was up-to-date and just all so nice. They did a nice job and I really like the coaches. The dorms nicer than what I have seen with just two people, instead of four. So, there was just a lot of good things."

Scott said the staff told him about the programs recent success producing defensive linemen.

"They did a good job," he said. "It was also more about just trying to show me around and show me all of the school."

Scott said he recently picked up an offer from USC and "may try to visit there," but noted he likely won't be making all five of his visits.

He will make his decision on Christmas Day - his birthday - and enroll at a school in January.

"I was already considering Louisville," Scott said. "But this helped them."
