Moore High School star J.J. Weaver has an offer from Louisville, interest is picking up from other schools

Moore High School star J.J. Weaver has an offer from Louisville, interest is picking up from other schools.

The recruitment is picking up for Moore High School 2019 defensive end J.J. Weaver.

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Weaver is considered one of the elite '19 prospects in the state of Kentucky and had been offered by the University of Louisville in September.

But since the end of his season, Weaver had continued to hear from the Cardinals staff and added more interest.

"It's been going great," Weaver said. "I'm enjoying it all right now."

Weaver attended Louisville's Junior Day earlier this month and has been to several one-day camps, including one where he was named MVP. He said the U of L Junior Day put the Cardinals "definitely in my top five."

"I got some love and support from them as a sophomore," Weaver said. "Coach (Bobby) Petrino is a laid back and funny coach. All he said to me was to make a good decision and become a student-athlete first.

"I really liked him and I like Louisville."

Weaver, who moved to Louisville from Broward County in South Florida as a seventh grader, is working out with former U of L standout Dexter Heyman. He said Florida has always been his favorite school.

He's also visited Notre Dame and Florida State and has a visit planned for Tennessee.
