Louisville offers Louisiana cornerback

The U of L staff has been hitting Louisiana hard in the last few weeks. The latest with an offer is Slidell, La., Salmen three-star cornerback Eddie Smith, who now has more than a dozen scholarship offers.

Smith was one of the top defenders at The Opening in New Orleans in March. His offer sheet includes, Oregon State, Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Southern Mississippi and UAB.

As a junior, Smith played on both sides of the ball at receiver and defensive back. He caught 11 passes for 275 yards and five touchdowns on an impressive 25 yards per reception. Defensively, Smith recorded 33 tackles, one tackle for loss, and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

And another from Louisiana came when the Cardinals offered New Orleans Landry-Walker cornerback Corione Harris.

The 6-foot, 165-pound Harris is a four-star prospect and currently committed to Kansas.

Harris ranks as the No. 234 player in the country and No. 20 among cornerbacks nationally.

Mason County OL checks out U of L

Kindt has also been in contact with Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Wofford, Western Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky. He said he hopes to make the rounds to camp this summer, including at U of L.

"I did go (to the spring game) and it was amazing," Kindt said. "The coaching staff and campus was just perfect I talked to the offensive line coach  (Mike Summers) and I had a blast."
