Nathan Nord, a three-star Louisville commitment, is nearing the completion of his senior season. The nephew of Louisville assistant Greg Nord, the 6'6, 220-pound tight end from West Boca Raton, Florida, still hears from other college recruiters despite his early commitment to the Cardinals.

"Everything is good," Nord said of his commitment to Louisville. "I think I'm actually going to take an official to (Louisville) December 8th. I think that's going to be the only official that I take. Other schools like Southern Miss and Iowa State have been asking me to visit but I don't think I'm going to do it."

Nord said he's followed the Cardinals season to this point. And despite an unexpected .500 record this season, Nord expects Steve Kragthorpe to right the ship next season.

"I've been following them and I've watched a couple games," Nord said. "They've been struggling a little bit but I think they're going to be alright, though. They've got all the talent. It's just - I don't know what's going on really. I think just the new coach and the new system – they needed a year to get on the same page and I think next year it'll start clicking a little bit better."

With the regular-season over, Nord and his team are preparing for the second round of the state playoffs this week.

"We came in second in district and 6-4 overall," Nord said. "I think I had about 15 catches and four touchdowns. I think our offense could have done a lot better. Our quarterback struggled a lot and our offense just didn't click."

Nord missed half of junior season with an injury. He said he's fully recovered now and plans to hit the weight-room as soon as his team's run ends in the state playoffs.

"I'm definitely back to normal now," Nord said. "I'm just going to concentrate on getting bigger and stronger during the (off-season)."
