October 11th Visitors

Once again ITV has done its research and has uncovered a number of players making visits to the Louisville football program this weekend.

The following are players are those that ITV has learned that are planning on making the trip to Louisville this Saturday to visit the Cardinals football program.

Dwayne Coy (Lexington Bryan Station High School)
Coy is a 6'4, 290-pound lineman that ITV first introduced you to in April. Coy spoke with ITV on Friday and informed us that he has yet to decide if he will make the trip to Louisville this weekend or if he'll visit Western Kentucky.

"I'm not sure yet," said Coy of a possible visit this weekend. "I'm definately going to visit Louisville though. I really liked the facilities and coaches there when I was there in the spring."

Coy also informed ITV that Louisville and Kentucky currently top his list, followed by Ohio and Western Kentucky.

Nick Dooros (Cincinnati LaSalle High School)
A coach's son, Dooros, according his head coach Tom Grippa, has his "best football in front of him." At 6'5, 225-pounds Dooros could develop into an imposing tight end or defensive end.

Dooros, who is also the starting center for LaSalle's basketball team, is hearing from Cincinnati and most of the Mid American Conference programs, as well as Louisville.

Chance Freeman (Gadsen (AL) Southside High School)
Chance's mother Debbie Freeman spoke with ITV recently and told us that her son receives frequent letters from the Cardinals and that he hopes to make the trip to Louisville this weekend.

"He wants to come up real bad," said Ms. Freeman. "I'm not sure if he will yet or not."

At 6'4, 235-pounds, Freeman has great size for a linebacker and has already made unofficial visit to North Carolina State.

James Gallatin (Cleveland (TN) Walker Valley High School)
Gallatin (6'4, 230) has already visited the Louisville football complex a number of times, for camps and junior day.

"We're real excited to come up to Louisville," said Ms. Gallatin. "We love Louisville!"

Projected as a defensive end on the collegiate level, Gallatin has attracted attention from a number of programs, including Vanderbilt and Memphis. He's also an excellent student and has drawn interest from the IVY League programs as well.

Kevin Jacobs (Lexington Bryan Station High School)
With a 6'6, 330-pound frame, offensive tackle Kevin Jacobs has drawn the attention of a number of programs and will be making his second visit to Louisville of the year.

Jacobs, who also attended Louisville's Junior Day, provided ITV with Top 5 of Louisville, Kentucky, Northwestern, West Virginia and Duke.

"Louisville and Kentucky are high on my list, but Northwestern is probably my favorite right now," said Jacobs.

Michael Melanpy (Vandalia (OH) Butler Senior High School)
Michael's father Dave Malanpy spoke with ITV on Friday about his son and informed us that they'd be making the drive south on Saturday to visit the Cardinal football program.

"We've been there before as well," explained Mr. Melanpy. "They have beautiful facilities and did a really good job building that stadium."

In addition to the interest from Louisville, Melanpy is also receiving interest from Cincinnati, Minnesota and most Mid American Conference programs.

Other area athletes ITV expects to be making unofficial visits for the game against Army on Saturday:

Myron Pryor (ITV)
Myron Pryor: Louisville Eastern's impressive 6'1, 290-pound offensive lineman. ITV believes that Pryor is a Louisville lean and will once offered by the Cardinal coaching staff. Pryor, who has offers from both Kentucky and Indiana, also lists Michigan State and Cincinnati among his favorites.

Mario Urrutia: Unable to make a scheduled visit for the home opener due to a conflict with his work schedule, ITV believes that the talented receiver from Louisville Fern Creek will be on hand on Saturday. Urrutia currently lists Louisville, Kentucky, Nebraska and Virginia as his favorites.

Nick Borgelt: Possibly a hidden gem right here in the River City, Borgelt has the size (6'5, 270) and ability to play both ways and has been a standout for Holy Cross for the past couple seasons. He is receiving interest from Louisville, Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and others.
