Louisville 2017 football commitment Cole Bentley helped Belfry win a fourth straight state title, made his official visit to the Cardinals' campus and the four-star offensive guard is now ready to enroll with the Cardinals.

Cole Bentley has had a busy week.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive lineman helped Belfry High School to a fourth consecutive Class 3-A Kentucky state championship last Saturday afternoon and on Monday was elevated to a four-star prospect by Scout.com.

On Wednesday, Bentley made his official visit to Louisville.

"I loved it," Bentley reports, noting he will be enrolling with the Cardinals the first week of January.

Bentley, ranked as the No. 24 offensive guard in the country and tops at his position in Kentucky, has made several unofficial visits to campus. He spent time on his official touring the campus, chatting with the coaches and attending the basketball game on Wednesday.

He'll enroll at U of L in January and participate in spring practice.

"I feel really confident in my decision with U of L," Bentley told Cardinal Authority. "I love the coaches and the play style there at Louisville. I'm just excited get in there in January to get going."

Bentley helped the Pirates to a 14-1 record this season, averaging 44 points a game. The Pirates rushed for 5,207 yards and Bentley finished with 52 tackles while playing defensive tackle.

"I want to bring that (winning attitude) to Louisville and hopefully carry through and get some championships when I am there," Bentley said.

Added Belfry coach Phillip Haywood: "He's got a great future. He's a big, strong physical kid who moves well. He's going to go in there and has such a great work ethic, he's going to do a great job for them."
