Four-Star LB rates Louisville a perfect 10

Josh Bynes wasn't really thinking much about playing his college football at Louisville prior to making an official visit with the Cardinals this weekend. But that all changed after what the four-star linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes, Florida termed a perfect "ten-plus" visit to U of L.

Josh Bynes wasn't really thinking much about playing his college football at Louisville prior to making an official visit with the Cardinals this weekend. But that all changed after what the four-star linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes, Florida termed a "ten-plus" visit to U of L.

"It was a great visit and I had a lot of fun," Bynes, the #5 linebacker in the nation said. "I'd rate that visit a 10 plus. They have a great group of guys and a lot of players from Florida there."

Bynes traveled to Louisville with teammate Patrick Grant, a three-star linebacker/defensive end that committed to Nebraska earlier this year but is re-considering his decision. Bynes watched Louisville practice, in addition to getting to know the coaches and players better.

"I really felt comfortable at Louisville," Bynes said. "At first, I wasn't really thinking about Louisville because it's in Kentucky, but something kept telling me to go up there and take a visit. Now, I'm glad I did. I fell I'd fit in perfect at Louisville with all the guys they have from Florida. That visit really helped Louisville's chances."

The Cardinals hosted several prospects from Florida this weekend, including running back Rai-Shawn Wilson and tight end Mat Williams. With 22 players already on Louisville's roster from the Sunshine state, Bynes felt right at home.

"I really had a great time just bonding with the players," Bynes said. "I was very impressed with the uptempo practice and I just like hanging out and chilling with the players. Rai-Rai (Rai-Shawn Wilson) and all of us really kind of bonded," Bynes said. "We had a lot of fun together and it was like we all knew each other all of our lives."

Bynes has already visited Iowa and Auburn and he'll make a final trip to South Carolina next month with his father. "After that visit I'll make my decision," he said.
