L.T. gives Louisville visit high marks

Scout.com four-star wide receiver prospect Latarrius Thomas spoke with InsideTheVille.com on Tuesday about his official visit with Louisville last weekend

Scout.com four-star receiver prospect Latarrius Thomas of New Smyrna Beach (Fla.) High School made his second trip to Louisville last weekend, when he tripped to the River City for his official visit. While he was somewhat familiar with the Cardinals program because of his visit this past summer, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Thomas indicated that his latest visit spiked his interest even more.

"It went really well," he explained. "I was able to see the campus, the weight room, the new indoor facility and spoke with the coaches. My interest in Louisville has increased dramatically since my visit."

L.T., who was hosted by U of L receiver Harry Douglas during his trip, said that part of his discussions with the Cardinals coaching staff concerned possible early playing time and how he would fit in Bobby Petrino's offense. However, it was his time watching the 16th-ranked Cardinals prepare for their upcoming Gator Bowl contest against Virginia Tech that left a strong impression.

"It was nice to get see them practice," he said. "They practice with a lot of intensity. Their offense is stunning to watch. They could definitely win that game."

Upcoming official visits with Florida, Mississippi State, South Carolina and West Virginia remain for Thomas, who claims that all of his favorites remain as equals.

"No one really stands out over the others right now," said Thomas, who will receive a visit from U of L assistant Tony Levine at his school on Wednesday. "I plan on taking all my visits before making a decision."
