Mainland (FL) High School quarterback Jonathan Garner had all but ended his recruiting process when he verbally committed to Florida, but when Ron Zook was fired as the Gators head coach, Garner began to look elsewhere.

One of his stops was to Louisville over the past weekend, when the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Garner made his official visit.

"The visit went real well," Garner said on Sunday. "I was hosted by Brian Brohm and I was really impressed with the coaches there."

While his visit included a trip to Freedom Hall for the Cardinals basketball game, Garner mentioned that he was most impressed by his experience inside the U of L football complex.

"It was probably when they had us in the locker room and watching game film," Garner explained of what stood out the most. "I also met with Coach Petrino on Sunday morning."

Garner, who was Area Player of the Year, liked what he heard during his time with the Cardinals head coach.

"He told me how much that they wanted me to come there and that I would be a big addition to their team," explained Garner. "We talked about the offense and how I would fit in."

Coach Petrino isn't the only one that has mentioned how well Garner would fit in with the Louisville offense. His parents, who are both graduates of the University of Memphis, have mentioned the similar thoughts.

"His dad used to coach football and he told him that he thought the Louisville offense would be perfect for him," said Garner's mother. "I told Jonathan that we would be happy if he decided to go there."

Despite his parents being graduates of a long-time U of L rival, Garner knows that his parents are completely behind him.

"It wouldn't matter to them," Garner said. "They just want what is best for me."

And in the end, it just may be Louisville.

"Louisville and Georgia Tech are my leaders right now," explained Garner. "I still have a couple visits left and then I'll decide."
