Louisville lands big first commitment

One of the Bluegrass State's top prospects, offensive lineman Brad Durham has made his decision. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound three-star prospect informed InsideTheVille.com that he called Louisville this afternoon to accept their offer of a scholarship.

Scout.com three-star offensive lineman Brad Durham told InsideTheVille.com that he committed to in-state Louisville on Thursday afternoon.

"I decided today," Durham said. "I called Louisville today and told them that I wanted to come there. I talked to Coach Greg Nord and he said that he'd pass the news along to Coach Petrino."

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Durham, who was a Scout.com All-American combine selection for the event held at Louisville in May, selected Louisville over Cincinnati, Kentucky, Tennessee and a host of others.

"It was the whole school overall," Durham said of what made Louisville stand out above the others. "It's a great school and a great football program."

Durham, who runs a 5.2 forty yard dash, played defensive end and offensive tackle as a junior. Durham, according to published reports, has also already qualified academically to play as a college freshman.

"He has a world of potential," Rockcastle head coach, Chris Larkey told KentuckySportsReport.com's Larry Vaught. "He used to play basketball, but he stopped so he could lift weights and get stronger. He moves well. He is real quick on his feet."

A member of Kentucky's 'Tremendous 26,' a preseason list picked by high school coaches of the top 26 players in the state, Durham is considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the Bluegrass state.
