"It was an excellent visit," Cushing told Inside the Ville on Tuesday. "I was great to finally get to meet Coach Petrino. I never knew how laid back he really is. He and Coach Wolthausen spent about two hours here, plus they came by my school earlier."
During their time in the Cushing home, Coach Petrino discussed how he'd best utilized the U.S. Army All-American's talents and what he'd expect of him if were to suit up in the Red and Black.
"Coach Petrino had a peice of paper with a list of things he'd like for me to if I come there," said Cushing. "It had things like lead the team in tackles, tackles for a loss and sacks."
"Coach Weis called and talked to my dad," Cushing said of the new Irish head coach. "I still feel the same, but I'll listen to see what he has to say."
With Louisville as his first official visit, Cushing has an idea of some of the things that he'll be looking for during the time spent on the U of L campus.
"I want to see what the enviroment around the campus is like, the football facilities and I'm real interested in watching them practice," explained Cushing, who will also take in the basketball game between the Cardinals and Wildcats on Saturday afternoon in Freedom Hall.
"It's going to be live! It's going to be a lot of fun!"
