Alston surprised by game; thinking of visit

Lamar Alston was suprised by the strong performance of the Cardinals play against Miami and now the Paducah Tilghman standout is considering an official visit to Louisville.

Lamar Alston is finding that his stock is rising with each passing week and has added a new scholarship offer to go along with those previously extended from Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Illinois, Wake Forest and Alabama.

"[Purdue] just offered me," Alston said. "They are doing pretty good, so they are up there."

Also among his favorites are Florida, Kentucky and Louisville and with the Cardinals strong play against Miami last Thursday, U of L may have strengthened its case.

"I was surprised by how good [Louisville] played," said Alston of the game. "I didn't think it was that close, but they played really good and should have won it."

U of L assistant Mike Summers called Alston to discuss the game and a possible official visit in a few weeks.

"He asked me what I thought of the game and we talked about about an official visit," said Alston, who is considering an official visit to Louisville in November. "He asked me about committing and I told him I wasn't ready and he said to take my time, whenever I'm ready."

When asked if he is planning any other official visits, Alston quickly replied, "not right now, I'm trying to win a state championship with my team."

Paducah Tilghman is currently 6-2 and will face Calloway County this weekend.
