James talks about decision to become a Cardinal

Craig James of Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville, FL spoke to InsideTheVille.com about his decision to join Bobby Petrino's nationally-ranked University of Louisville football program.

One of the last uncommitted prospects to visit Louisville has committed to Bobby Petrino and staff.

Wide receiver prospect Craig James told InsidetheVille.com this afternoon that he made the decision on Sunday morning.

"I actually committed earlier today," said James. "I had a great visit there."

James continued to describe his visit as one that felt perfect from the moment that he arrived on campus.

"I liked everything about my visit," explained James. "I had a good time hanging out with the players, the coaches were straight up with everything that I asked about and everyone there made me feel like it was already my home."

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound James came out of the Lee High School backfield this season, racking up 732 rushing yard. He also added over 100 yards receiving. From his cornerback position James intercepted two passes and recorded 36 tackles.

"I'm going to come in as a receiver," said James, who has been clocked with a 4.39 40-yard time.

James, who had actually verbally pledged to East Carolina during the summer, committed to Louisville over offers from South Florida and Middle Tennessee State.

"I still have a visit scheduled to South Florida, but I think I'm done taking them," James said.
