Louisville will be tough to match

It has been nearly two weeks since Scout.com five-star prospect Luther Davis made an official visit with the University of Louisville and according to the 6'4, 255-pound defensive lineman his Cardinal experience has only continued to get better

After making his first official visit of the year nearly two weeks ago to the University of Louisville, Scout.com five-star defensive end prospect Luther Davis used this past weekend to relax and spend time with family.

"I didn't go anywhere this weekend," said Davis. "I stayed home with my mom and my brothers and watched a lot of college football."

On his game watching agenda was 8th-ranked Louisville's road contest at Kansas State on Saturday afternoon, but despite a lengthy effort, Davis was unable to catch the Cards fourth win of the season.

"I didn't get to watch it," he said. "We have satellite and I tried for about an hour to find the game but couldn't. I saw the highlights and they looked impressive just like the weekend before."

Davis' West Monroe High School squad also remained unbeaten this weekend, due in part to a strong effort by the All-State performer.

"I had a great game on Friday night," said Davis, who was a 1st Team All-State, District and All-N' East Louisiana selection following his junior season. "I had 12 tackles and 3 sacks. We won 21-7 and that puts us at 4-0."

With his team focused on reaching and winning the state playoffs, Davis explained that the opportunity to play in the just re-opened New Orleans SuperDome has given his team even more motivation.

"Just watching the game makes me feel apart of it, because I haven't seen so many people come here for a long time," Davis said about the return of the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. "It's good to have the spotlight on our state for a good thing instead of a bad thing like Hurricane Katrina."

"Now that they have opened the dome back it up it helps motivate us even more," he continued. "That's where we have played our state championship games, so it's pushing us hard to get back to the dome."

While he claims no changes to his short list of favorites, which consists of Auburn, Louisville, LSU and USC, he explained that his experience at U of L has only improved since his return home.

"Crazy enough it's even better," he explained. "My host when I was there was Eugene Sowell and I talk to him about every other day now. I met a lot of guys there and we exchanged phone numbers and they stay in touch with me, so that's a big thing for me."

Davis, who will make his remaining four official visits following the completion of senior season, admits that his time in Louisville will be difficult for others to match.

"That visit is going to be tough to match," he said. "We all had a great time and it's something that I will remember for the rest of my life. Even if I play at Louisville or somewhere else, I will always remember that."
