Surprise! Quentin Castille Visits Louisville

Quinten Castille, one of the top running backs in Texas, made an official visit to Louisville Saturday to watch the Cardinals finish the 2006 season 11-1 win an impressive 48-17 victory over Connecticut. Is the 6-2, 225-pound Nebraska commit reconsidering his decision?

Surprise! Quinten Castille, one of the top running backs in Texas, made an official visit to Louisville Saturday to watch the Cardinals finish the 2006 season 11-1 win an impressive 48-17 victory over Connecticut.

Castille, a 6-2, 225 pound power back with 4.5 speed, made a verbal commitment to Nebraska earlier this fall, but apparently his recruitment remains open – evidenced by his visit to U of L. Castille also recently made an official visit to Texas A&M.

A three-star running back rated the #7 fullback nationally, Castille seems an ideal replacement for Michael Bush should the Louisville senior opt to depart for the National Football League after the season. Castille rushed for over 1,200 yards as a junior, and more than 1,600 yards and 20 touchdowns this season.

Before the game, Castille watched the Louisville running backs closely from the endzone during warmup drills. Recruited by Louisville assistant Greg Nord, Castille, accompanied by his parents, seemed to be enjoying himself. Moments before kickoff, Castille posed for photos with both his mother and father on the U of L sideline.

Clad in red, Castille was certainly the Cardinals top prospect for their season finale against the Huskies. Will Castille change his mind about his commitment to Nebraska and instead choose Louisville?
