This weekend, Bobby Petrino and the Cards hosted another Cornhusker commit, 6-4, 225-pound defensive end/linebacker Patrick Grant, a three-star prospect from Florida.

Another Nebraska commit is considering Louisville. Earlier this month, Nebraska running back pledge Quentin Castille made an official visit to U of L. This weekend, Bobby Petrino and the Cards hosted another Cornhusker commit, 6-4, 225-pound defensive end/linebacker Patrick Grant.

Grant, a Lauderdale Lakes, Florida native, made the trip to Louisville with high school teammate and friend Josh Bynes. Like Bynes, Grant left U of L highly impressed with Petrino's program.

"It was a great visit," Grant said. "Coach Petrino was great. Everybody wants to win a national championship at Louisville. That's what I was most impressed with that they're players are all in sync and focused on winning.

Grant decided to reconsider his commitment to Nebraska when defensive line coach John Blake left Lincoln to become an assistant under Butch Davis at North Carolina. "He was 90 percent of the reason why I chose to commit to Nebraska, so it hurts that he's not there," Grant said.

Though Grant is still checking things out, he said he's still committed to Nebraska. "I guess I'm solid with my commitment with Nebraska, but it will depend on my meeting and comfort level with (Nebraska's) new defensive line coach," Grant said. "I got to meet with the defensive line coach at Louisville on my visit and, of course, I could see myself going there."

Rated the #30 strong-side linebacker in the nation and a three-star recruit, said he's looking for stability in the school he eventually signs with next February.

"Basically, they're both good schools," Grant said of Louisville and Nebraska "It's difficult to compare them. They're both good defensively. I'm looking for stability at the school that I pick. I like Louisville a lot. They're 40-8 since Coach Petrino has been there, and everything just clicks and they're constantly seeking perfection."

Grant said he is supposed to visit Wisconsin and South Florida in January.
