St. Fleur sets Louisville visit

Ronnie St. Fleur, a two-star linebacker from Hollywood, Florida, is getting ready to make some official visits. The 6-2, 220-pound St. Fleur is focused on four big time programs and Big East champion Louisville will get the final crack to sway him next month.

Ronnie St. Fleur is gearing up to hit the road for some official visits that will play an important role for him in picking a school from among his four favorites – West Virginia, Louisville, Michigan and Minnesota.

The 6-2, 220-pound linebacker from Hollywood, Florida has a nice official visit schedule lined up. He'll start things off this weekend with an official visit to West Virginia. Jan. 13 he'll head to Minnesota and then head back to Big Ten country the following week for a Jan. 20 visit to Michigan. Louisville will get final crack at St. Fleur when he makes an official visit one week before national signing day Jan. 28. St. Fleur said Indiana, Iowa and Miami are in the running if he decides to take a fifth visit.

"I'm open minded and I'm going to take my visits and find the right situation for me," St. Fleur said. "They're all in the mix right now. I'll take all my visits and probably make my decision right before signing day. But I could make it earlier. You never know."

St. Fleur spoke with a pair of Big East programs Wednesday.

"I talked to coaches from West Virginia and Louisville (today)," St. Fleur said Wednesday. "Coach (Louisville assistant Reggie) Johnson has been straight up with me and I like that a lot. He told me he loved my film and what we could do together I went there."

While Michigan hasn't offered a scholarship yet, Wolverine assistant coach Steve Stripling checked in on St. Fleur last week and is slated to make another visit with the two-star prospect next week. "They're talking about an offer when I go up there for my visit," St. Fleur said. Minnesota will also make a visit next week.

St. Fleur, who holds offers from Minnesota, West Virginia, Iowa, Indiana and Louisville, had more than 110 tackles and 30 tackles for loss this season.

"Early playing time isn't that important to me," he said. "I expect I'll redshirt next season wherever I go. Then I want to be read to make a big impact on the field after that."
