Florida safety Kaheem Roach is committed to Louisville but will make a visit to Illinois on Jan. 27.

Miramar, Fla., safety Kaheem Roach committed to Louisville in August but has been still getting recruited by other schools.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Roach made his official visit over the weekend to U of L, hoping to get acquainted with the two new defensive coaches and to build a stronger bond with the rest of the staff.

And when he left, Roach said it "felt like home."

"Basically, I wanted to get to see the coaches and I really liked everything," he said. "It was all good, I really enjoyed it at Louisville and it really did feel like home to me."

Roach, who was hosted by cornerback Trumaine Washington, said he "really liked" chatting with new secondary coach Lorenzo Ward and had a chance to spend time with new defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon.

"I got a chance to meet them and talk to them," Roach said. "I really liked coach Ward. Coach Sirmon is pretty cool; it seems like he knows his stuff. I made a good bond with them.

"I think I could come into Louisville and make an impact."

So, does that mean his recruitment is over?

Roach said "almost" noting that he will make an official visit to Illinois on Jan. 27.

"The commitment is almost close to 100 percent, it's real close," Roach said.
