Hancock County pair to visit Louisville

<B>Michael Schwindel</b> and <B>Jordan Doyle</b> of Hancock County High School will visit Louisville this weekend for the Cardinals Junior Day on Saturday.

As spring practice nears its last week, the University of Louisville will use this Saturday's practice and scrimmage as a recruiting tool and welcome numerous prospects from around the state and region for Junior Day.

Two such prospects that will be on hand are defensive back Michael Schwindel and running back Jordan Doyle, both of Hancock County.

Schwindel, a second team All-State choice as a junior, is among the top prospects in the state on both the gridiron and hardwood.

Since completing the recent basketball season, when he averaged 21.5 points per game and drawn interest from Murray State, Morehead State and others, Schwindel has turned his attention to improving both his strength and speed.

"Lately I've been lifting weights and doing some speed acceleration programs," said the 6'3, 200-pound defensive back.

His visit to Louisville for Junior Day will be his first such trip of the year, but he does have plans to visit Kentucky and possibly Tennessee this spring.

"Right now I am pretty open between those three," Schwindel explained of his current favorites, Louisville, Kentucky and Tennessee. "I probably get stuff from Kentucky the most and they offered me a scholarship a few weeks ago."

Teammate Jordan Doyle will also be attending U of L's Junior Day on Saturday, which will also be his first such visit.

Doyle, an All-State honorable mention selection last fall, was one of the top running backs in the state last fall when he racked up 1,608 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Doyle is also receiving quite a bit of attention from programs from around the region.

"I'm hearing from Arkansas, Louisville, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Vanderbilt the most right now," explained the 6'0, 210-pound back. "I'm pretty wide open to any school right now. I want to see what the facilities are like and find the right coaches that will work with me and make me a better player."

Schwindel and Jordan are just two of many that will visit the U of L football complex on Saturday, so stay logged on to InsidetheVille.com for additional prospect updates.
