Florida tight end sets official visit

Cardinals were among the first to extend a scholarship offer to the Fort Myers Riverdale High School tight end prospect

Fort Myers (Fla.) Riverdale tight end Mat Williams is no stranger to the University of Louisville football program and what it has to offer. Williams received a written scholarship offer from U of L over the summer and has made a couple visits since.

In addition to his offer from Bobby Petrino's staff, Williams also holds scholarship offers from Duke, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, South Florida and Wake Forest.

Williams will make a return trip to the Derby City for an official visit the weekend of December 16. As part of his official visit, Williams will tour both the athletic and academic support facilities, visit with coaches and attend the U of L - UK basketball game in Freedom Hall.

Williams also has official visits scheduled with Ole Miss, South Carolina and South Florida. A trip to Wake Forest is also a possibility.

A Third Team All-State choice as a junior, Williams helped his Riverdale team reach the region quarterfinals this season.
