PRP's Spillman Commits

As InsidetheVille.com first reported on Monday, JuJuan Spillman of PRP was strongly considering a commitment to Louisville this week. On Thursday evening he met with U of L coaches and did just that.

This is a commitment that comes as no surprise.

On Monday JuJuan Spillman informed Inside the Ville that after watching the Cardinals defeat Kentucky 28-0 that he was close to making a verbal commitment to Louisville.

"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."

"I'm going down to U of L either Tuesday or Wednesday of this week to meet with the coaches," Spillman said.

That meeting occurred on Thursday at around 5:00 pm.

"I met with Coach Petrino and Coach Nord," Spillman explained. "Coach Petrino told me that they had a scholarship waiting for me, so I took it."

With his commitment, Spillman becomes the second visitor from Sunday's game to decide to commit to Louisville. Blake Boyd committed just prior to the contest. Louisville now has four commitments, including Maurice Grinter and Darius Mann.

"I'm going to start telling guys like James McKinney and Alfonso Smith that they need to come to," Spillman said.

Spillman, like Grinter, is also expected to walk-on Rick Pitino's basketball program.

"I haven't talked to the basketball coaches yet, but I will soon," Spillman said.

In his last outing, Spillman rushed for 308 yards and 5 touchdowns, while also recording one interception in the win over Louisville Seneca.

Spillman chose the Cardinals over offers from Iowa and Purdue.
