Auburn trio hope to visit UofL this weekend

A trio of prospects from Auburn High School are anticipating a visit to Louisville on Sunday for the Cardinals season opener.

Two have scholarship offers and one has an impressive leg. Defensive tackle L.D. Scott, defensive back Brandon Carlisle and kicker/punter Chris Beck all hope to make the drive to the River City on Sunday morning.

"We're not sure if we have our ride up there yet," said Carlisle. "We are working on it though."

The trio is highlighted by 3-star prospect, 6-foot-2, 265-pound defensive tackle L.D. Scott. Scott has the potential to contribute right away as a true freshman, which has played a role in the Cardinals rising to the top of his list of favorites.

"I'd don't want to start or anything like that, but I think I could help out my first year," Scott said.

Louisville, along Auburn, Alabama and Southern Miss currently top Scott's list.

"Nothing has really changed, those are still my favorites," said Scott. "Georgia Tech and Mississippi State have come up some too."

Auburn High School alum and Louisville assistant Joe Whitt Jr. spoke with Scott on Wednesday, as did Joe Whitt Sr. of Auburn.

"He wanted to make sure I was coming up to the game," continued Scott. "He was telling me how much fun I'd have."

Carlisle, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back, also holds a scholarship offer from U of L.

"Arkansas, Louisville and Auburn are my favorites," Carlisle said. "Alabama too."

Carlisle, who also starts at receiver for AHS, claims that all three are even at this point.

Kicker/punter Chris Beck also plays receiver for AHS and will join Scott and Carlisle on the trip.
