Alabama lineman plans to visit Louisville

Antoine Caldwell of Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Alabama spoke with ITV on Tuesday evening and gave us the latest on his recruitment.

When ITV first spoke with Antoine Caldwell of Lee High School in Montgomery, Alabama, we learned that Louisville was the first program to offer the talented lineman. Since our previous conversation in June, Caldwell has added three more scholarship offers.

"I have added three more since then," explained Caldwell. "Southern Miss, Auburn have offered and then last week Alabama offered me."

While his recruiting process is going very well, Caldwell's senior season at Lee High School isn't going as well as he had hoped, but yet he continues to provide examples of his positive attitude which college coaches must appreciate.

"Our season hasn't been going as good as we would like it too," said Caldwell. "We have lost two of our three games so far, but they have been against really good teams. We can't make excuses though…we have to make the best of what we have."

Caldwell, who plays along both the offensive and defensive line, is drawing attention from coaches for his abilities on both sides of the ball. "I have had schools talk to me about playing either position," explained Caldwell. "It doesn't really matter to me though…I'll play wherever they need me."

Caldwell also informed ITV that Louisville assistant coach Joe Whitt Jr., who is responsible for recruiting the Montgomery area and last spoke with him this past Sunday, has told him that the Cardinals are interested in having the 6'4, 265-pound lineman play along the offensive line.

In addition to Louisville, Caldwell has also received phone calls from Vanderbilt and Auburn this week and anticipates receiving a few more by weeks end. While a number of those calls are now requesting official visits from talented senior.

"I haven't made any yet, but I plan on talking about that with my parents and making decisions this week or next," Caldwell said. "I do plan on making Louisville one of my visits."

While he has been unable to watch the Cardinals play yet this season he has been impressed by the team's 40-24 win over Kentucky and 30-20 win at Syracuse.

"They have come out good," continued Caldwell, who was a 6A All-Metro selection as a junior. "They are playing really well. I didn't get to watch the game against Kentucky, but my dad did and he was excited about how they played."
