Louisville up next for Tyler Wimsatt

Owensboro High School product Tyler Wimsatt has already made official visits with both Kentucky and Ohio. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder has one remaining official visit left and he tells InsideTheVille.com that he could make his college decision soon after the January 7 trip.

This past weekend, Owensboro High School linebacker/running back prospect Tyler Wimsatt made his second official visit, this time tripping to Lexington to visit the Kentucky program.

"It went pretty good," said Wimsatt, who made an official visit with Ohio in November. "I chilled out with the players and got to check out the facilities and the campus. They didn't try to pressure me to commit or anything."

Wimsatt displayed his versatility throughout his senior year and spent mush of the season playing out of position as the team's quarterback. Offensively he rushed for 770 yards and 8 touchdowns, while also throwing for an additional 541 yards.

While the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Wimsatt has visited Louisville previously on an unofficial visit, he told InsideTheVille.com on Sunday that he's looking forward to seeing more of what the school and football program have to offer.

"My last visit I didn't get to see any of the campus really, so I want to check all of that out," he explained.

While there are some that believe that Louisville is the leader for his services, Wimsatt said that until he takes all of his visits that his trio of favorites are all equals.

"I have to see Louisville before I can say I have a favorite," explained Wimsatt, who has recently received in-home visits from all of his favorites, including U of L assistants Mike Summers and Tony Levine. "Ohio, Louisville and Kentucky are my top three right now."

However, he added that he could make a college decision soon after he returns home from his trip to the River City.

"I'll probably do it on the 9th or 10th of January," he said.
