Malcolm Munroe rates Louisville visit

Louisville didn't host a large number of official visitors last weekend, but they did host a pair of three-star prospects, including Miami, Florida standout Malcolm Munroe, the No. 18 strong-side linebacker nationally. What did Munroe think about his visit to Louisville?

Louisville didn't host a large number of official visitors last weekend, but they did host a pair of three-star prospects, including Miami, Florida standout Malcolm Munroe, the No. 18 strong-side linebacker nationally.

"It went pretty good," Munroe said. "I really liked the facilities. I liked the family atmosphere and the coaching staff. I've got a good relationship with the linebacker coach (Reggie Johnson). I'd rate it about a 9 – it would have been a 10 if they had won."

Louisville dropped their second straight game against the Orange, a 38-35 setback. Though the loss dampened his spirits some, Munroe said the Cardinals setback won't affect his decision.

"I would have liked it if they had won but I've had some tough losses in my career so I know how it feels," Munroe said. "That won't play that big of a factor in my decision."

Munroe got a chance to do the usual official visit stuff: tour facilities, investigate the academic opportunities, get to know the coaches and players and take in a game. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Munroe also had an opportunity to talk with Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe.

"He just told me they have great people there and that it's a great program," Munroe said. "He promised that he'd help me get my degree and he also told me that the defense needs help and that it would be good if I came there."

The Cardinals have struggled on defense this season, allowing 32 points per game. Munroe didn't sound turned off by Louisville's defensive struggles; in fact, he says he sees opportunity for himself.

"That's a positive for me because I'm looking for early playing time, so that's good," Munroe said.

With official visits to Auburn and Louisville now complete – plus an unofficial visit to UCF – Munroe's next stop will be to Georgia Tech this weekend when the Jackets host ACC rival Clemson.

"After the Georgia Tech visit I might have an order to my list," Munroe said. "I'm taking one more visit for sure to Georgia Tech this weekend. My visits to Auburn and Louisville were good. They were both good, I'll leave it at that."
