Louisville hosted 3-star running back A.J. Davis for an official visit; Davis said he 'loved' the visit and has a tough decision coming

The University of Louisville hosted three-star running back A.J. Davis for an official visit this weekend. Davis said he 'loved' the visit and has a tough decision coming.

A.J. Davis admitted he has a "very tough" decision coming.

The Lakeland, Fla., High School three-star running back finished up his visit to the University of Louisville on Sunday and said the Cardinals are "way up there" on his list of schools.

The 6-foot, 205-pound Davis has also visited North Carolina and Pittsburgh and will make a trip to Oregon next weekend.

"I will then sit down with my parents and talk about it all," Davis said. "It's going to be tough, very tough."

The Under Armour All-American has had Louisville in the mix for a while with running backs coach Kolby Smith building a "great relationship" with the star from the Sunshine State.

Davis said his mother made the trip to U of L with him this weekend.

"It was a lot of fun," Davis said. "My mom liked it a lot and I loved it. I like everything about it (at Louisville).

"I can see myself playing there."

The leading rusher for three straight years in Polk County, Davis said Smith and the other Louisville coaches made him feel welcome.

"They showed me a lot of love," Davis said. "They showed me I am a priority to their school. I really liked it a lot."

Davis was among 11 official visitors on campus but the only prospect not committed to the Cardinals. He said the other 10 guys "were really working and telling me they wanted me to join them."

Named the large school Player of the Year in Polk County, Davis finished his senior season with 1,498 yards on 187 carries. He averaged eight yards a carry and had 16 touchdowns. He finished his career with 5,398 yards rushing.
