Louisville tight end commit Kemari Averett has scheduled his official visit for the coming weekend

Louisville tight end commit Kemari Averett updates his recruiting

One of Louisville's members of the 2017 recruiting class has set his official visit.

Atlanta, Ga., Grady tight end Kemari Averett committed to Louisville in June and impressed his future coaches with his performance at the program's Light Up the Ville camp in July.  He'll return to the Derby City this weekend for his official visit.

"I want to see if I'll be comfortable and can make myself at home," he told Cardinal Authority. "I want to see the environment I'm in and how it would it be a great fit for me."

Rated among the top 50 tight end prospects nationally, Averett committed to the Cardinals over scholarship offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and others.  With National Signing Day rapidly approaching, U of L still must compete against others to secure his Letter of Intent on Feb. 1.

Louisville won't be the only visit he's making.  Auburn, which has yet to offer, will get his last trip.

"I've got U of L on the 20th and Auburn on the 27th," he said.  "Those are the last two visits."

U of L assistant Lonnie Galloway has been the primary recruiter for Averett, who will receive a visit from the Cardinals staff on Thursday.

Averett, 6-foot-7, 205-pounds, is a proven commodity for a passing offense.  He finished his senior season with 55 receptions for 796 yards and 11 touchdowns.
