Steinmetz: "It was more than I expected!"

Like many current Cardinal commitments, Drew Steinmetz was introduced to Louisville fans by Inside theVille. The <a href="http://louisville.theinsiders.com/2/221382.html">recent commitment</a> spoke with ITV again to tell us about his first visit to the University of Louisville.

Jacksonville Trinity Christian High School's Drew Steinmetz became the Cardinals 11th known commitment when Inside theVille first informed our premium subscribers last week during a chat session. On Sunday, we released the complete story of his commitment, so that all would know.

Drew spoke with ITV shortly after his return home from his official visit on Sunday to tell us about his time spent in Louisville.

"It was great," explained Steinmetz of his first experience of U of L and the city. "It was more than I expected! The field was unbelievable. It was all great...the whole thing! I wouldn't say there is any downfall to Louisville at all!"

He continued to explain that he had an opportunity to tour the campus, visit with each coach individually and spend time with the current players.

One of the many highlights of his visit was the tour of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

"They took us into a room where they would take the players and talk about goals and then all of the sudden Coach Petrino jumps up and yells, 'Let's Go!', Steinmetz explained. "Coach Petrino has so much energy. He took us into the locker room, where they had our names on the lockers and jerseys with our numbers on them hanging. Some of the [current] players were in there and he gave us a pregame speech, which had our adrenaline going. We put our jerseys on and then they took us down the tunnel and into the stadium. The smoke was going and they had highlights playing on the big screen. It was really cool."

With his decision made, Steinmetz is now looking foward to February 5th, National Signing Day, so he can begin preparing for his future at Louisville.

"I'll get the playbook around February 5th," said Steinmetz. "I'll start studying for about two or three hours a night so I can be ready. I know it's different than experiencing the real thing, but I want to know as much as I can when I get there."
