Louisville is making the defensive front a priority in the 2018 recruiting class and one of its targets will make an official visit with the Cardinals program later this month.
Copiah-Lincoln College (Miss.) defensive tackle Charles Cameron will trip to Louisville for an official visit June 16-18. It will be the first such visit for Cameron, who also scheduled time at Kansas in July.
When in town, his hope is to learn more about both the football program. To see if the fit is there for him personally.
"I want to see is this a place I can call my home and I don't want to make no mistakes," he said.
The 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive lineman played the three-technique, pass-rushing for Co-Lin last fall, recording 23 tackles, six sacks and seven tackles-for-loss. His ability to make a play in the backfield is part of what the Cardinals staff likes about him.
"They said I can play anywhere on the defensive line," he said. "They like how I shoot my hands and how I run to the ball."
The Cardinals staff has been building a relationship with Cameron for a couple months, which has led them becoming one of his current favorites.
"My relationship with Louisville is good," he told Cardinal Authority. "I like the coaching staff and it sound like a good place to play some football."
As for his favorites, he listed "Kansas, Louisville, TCU and Oregon."
Colorado, Colorado State, Florida Atlantic, San Diego State, Southern Miss and UNLV are among the others that have offered.
Cameron, a product of Morton (Ms.) High School, is on pace to graduate in December and will have three years to play two.
