PRP Spillman's nearing college decision

Pleasure Ridge Park standout JuJuan Spillman had a monster game against Seneca Friday night, rushing for 308 yards and five touchdowns while intercepting one pass on defense. Spillman, who was on hand Sunday to watch U of L shutout Kentucky 28-0, now says he's close to announcing his college decision.

The University of Louisville's 28-0 shutout victory over Kentucky Sunday afternoon is starting to pay recruiting devidends off the field.

Shortly before the season opener, 6'4, 235-pound defensive end Blake Boyd from Madisonville decided Louisville was the place for him and told U of L head coach Bobby Petrino he had decided to join the Cardinals program.

Now, another Kentucky high school standout, Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park's JuJuan Spillman, says he ready to pull the trigger and commit to the Cardinals, possibly on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.

"I had a really good time at the game," Spillman said Monday. "It was a big game and I was very impressed with the crowd and the atmosphere. And the fans were very welcoming and nice."

Spillman, who rushed for 308 yards and five touchdowns and intercepted a pass against Louisville Seneca last Friday said Monday that he felt the U of L coaching staff would extend a scholarship offer this week.

"I'm going down to U of L either Tuesday or Wednesday of this week to meet with the coaches," Spillman said. Asked whether or not he would make a verbal if the scholarship was offered, Spillman responded, "Yes, sir."

Spillman, one of the top football players in the state of Kentucky, is also considered the top high school basketball player in the state by many recruiting services.

Off to a 1-0 start, Louisville already has three known verbal commitments from Fairdale's Maurice Grinter, New Jersey defensive back Darius Mann and Madisonville's Blake Boyd.
