Hidden Gem OL Making Official Visit

Cardinal football has had it's share of success in locating and developing 'hidden gem' offensive line prospects and it may be in the process of uncovering another. The 6'5, 290-pound prospect from Spencer County is currently making an official visit with the Louisville program and InsideTheVille.com has the latest.

The University of Louisville offensive line has seen it's share of ‘hidden gem' prospects that have developed into key members of the Cardinal offense. Breno Giacomini, whose only major scholarship offer came from U of L, and former walk-on George Bussey are great examples of true hidden gems.

Is the current Cardinal coaching staff in the process of uncovering another such gem in 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman Vincent Biller of Taylorsville, Kentucky?

"Vince only played half a season last year because he had to have knee surgery before the season started," his father David Biller told InsideTheVille.com on Wednesday. "He's fine and completely 100% now, but he only was able to play in the last six games of his junior year. He's a four-year starter who played just about every down on both sides of the ball."

Limited to just six games as a junior and with little media attention, the Spencer County prospect has stayed under the radar until recent interest from both major in-state programs.

"He'll be up at the Louisville on Thursday afternoon and will stay for the game that night," said Biller. "I suspect he'll get a tour of the campus and facilities, plus get a chance to talk to the coaches."

"Coach Nord actually called Vince the day before he went up to the Kentucky - Mississippi State game and invited him to come for their game for that same weekend. Vince told him that he had already committed to visit Kentucky that weekend, so he invited him for the Rutgers game."

Biller, who has yet to receive his first scholarship offer, put his abilities on display at lineman camps held at Eastern Kentucky, Kentucky, Louisville, Richmond and Western Kentucky.

"Out of all of the camps that he attended, in my opinion he performed the best at the U of L camp," said Biller. "He was able to go up against the top rate guys and I thought that he did pretty good against them."

Biller, an All-District choice as a sophomore, helped guide Spencer County to a 6-5 record and a birth in the state 3A playoffs.
