U of L offer surprises Paris' Chase Dumphord

Paris High School offensive lineman Chase Dumphord added Louisville to an already impressive list of scholarship offers on Tuesday

Paris (Ky.) Offensive Lineman Chase Dumphord added offers from Louisville and Cincinnati recently. The two Big East programs join Kentucky and Auburn as early offers for the talented 6-foot-7, 285 pound offensive lineman.

"I'm pretty excited about it," Dumphord said about the in-state offer from Louisville that arrived today. "I didn't expect it to come, because I didn't really know they liked me so much and then the letter came in."

A host of schools are on the outside looking in, possibly joining the foursome in due time. "I'll probably see some more offers soon," Dumphord added. "Florida has really gotten in the mix of late and the Tennessee coach called me last night."

Dumphord, who has made unofficial visits with Auburn, Kentucky and Louisville, is scheduled to participate in Saturday's Scout.com All-American Combine being conducted at the University of Louisville.
