Louisville quarterback commit Tino Sunseri made his first unofficial visit to his future college home over the weekend for the first time since verbally committing to the Cardinals last month.

Sunseri, a talented prospect from Pittsburgh, watched several Louisville prospects in action, including highly regarded Lexington, KY wide receiver Aaron Boyd, during Louisville's 7 on 7 tournament Saturday afternoon at the U of L football complex.

Sunseri, who was accompanied by his mother on the visit, also had a chance to meet and talk with Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe, quarterbacks coach Jeff Brohm and recruiting coordinator Greg Nord while in town.

"I really enjoyed the visit," Sunseri told Sunday afternoon. "I got to see the campus for the first time since 1993, it's really changed a lot. We went past the old stadium and got to see all the new football facilities. It was great and it really reassured my mom and I of my decision.

"I also had a chance to sit down with Coach Brohm and Coach Kragthorpe for about 30 minutes and talk a little ball. Then during the 7 on 7 tournament, Coach Kragthorpe found me and we talked a little bit more."

While watching the 7 on 7 tournament, Sunseri also had a chance to talk with Michigan wide receiver prospect E.J. Riley. Riley participated in U of L's quarterback/wide receiver camp Sunday and is being recruited by the Cardinals.

"I saw Aaron Boyd work out and I got to hang out a little with E.J.," said Sunseri, whose cell phone ring tone is the Louisville fight song. "I wish I would have stayed for the quarterback camp, but I thought the camp was on Saturday and we already had our airline tickets booked to go back home."

Sunseri has a busy summer planned. His high school, Central Catholic, begins workouts Monday for the 2007 season. Those workouts will last thoughout the summer. He'll also participate in several 7 on 7 passing tournaments with his team.
