Munroe, 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, listed Wisconsin, Louisville, Auburn, Georgia Tech and South Carolina as his current favorites, with the Yellow Jackets currently in the lead for his services. Munroe also said Clemson, Florida and UCF are still in the mix.
"I'd say Georgia Tech is in the lead right now," Munroe said. "They've got the total package in terms of academics, depth chart, coaching staff and location. I really like Atlanta."
Munroe is currently in the process of scheduling official visits. He's already got visits to Wisconsin and Auburn scheduled. He'll visit the Badgers September 29 for their game against Michigan State and the Tigers Sept. 1.
"My top five for visits are Wisconsin, Louisville, Auburn, Georgia Tech and South Carolina," Munroe said. "I'll probably set some more visits up tonight."
Louisville loses two of its top linebackers to graduation this year in Malik Jackson and Preston Smith. That means finding a few good replacements is probably one of Steve Kragthorpe's highest priorities. Munroe, who runs a 4.6 forty and sports a vertical leap over 37 inches, certainly would be a major pickup.
So what does Munroe like about Louisville, who he said he plans to visit officially this fall?
"Louisville is a real exciting team to watch," said Munroe. "I feel like their coach is going to be there for a while and the depth chart looks (good) for me to come in and play early."
How important is having the opportunity for early playing time in Munroe's decision? What other factors will he consider in making his decision?
"It's not that important, but you know, it's a (factor) in my decision," Munroe said. "I don't have just one main factor - it's a combination of things. Academics, location, chance of playing for a national championship, atmosphere and my relationship with the coaches."
