Tennessee playmaker Lance Wilhoite made a trip to Louisville on Friday; says he hit it off with the Cardinals coaching staff

Tennessee playmaker Lance Wilhoite made a trip to Louisville on Friday. He says he hit it off with the Cardinals coaching staff during his unofficial visit to campus.

With already double digit offers in his pocket, Nashville, Tenn., Franklin Road Academy 2019 playmaker Lance Wilhoite is starting to make a few trips to check out some of the schools on his list.

On Friday, Wilhoite was at the University of Louisville and maybe left a little surprised.

"Louisville had a lot to offer from the facilities, the coaches and the community to the classroom," Wilhoite said. "The visit was great."

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Wilhoite was at Tennessee the week before and holds offers from U of L and the Volunteers, along with LSU, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Memphis and others.

Wilhoite said he doesn't have any favorites but noted the Louisville staff did a good job of making him want to return.

"I feel like I really hit it off with coach Lonnie Galloway," Wilhoite said. "I really enjoyed our conversations and I also loved when I got to talk to coach (Bobby) Petrino just to talk football, man-to-man."

But Wilhoite, who was named all-district as a sophomore at wide receiver, said he had one moment at U of L that really stood out.

"My highlight was when I met the Heisman Trophy winner - Lamar Jackson," he said. "That was a highlight."
