Stoudt will visit Louisville Jan. 18-19.

First up for the Dublin, Ohio star, who threw for more than 3,500 yards and 34 touchdowns this season, will be an official visit to Pittsburgh. Stoudt will follow that trip with a recently scheduled official visit to Louisville.

"I'm going to Pitt (January) 11-13," Stoudt said. "I'm going down to Louisville (January) 18-19 for an official visit."

Stoudt remains committed to Pittsburgh and says "I'm going there as of now." But with a crowded quarterback situation in the Steel City, Stoudt is keeping his options open – meaning he intends to investigate Louisville's offer before signing on the dotted line next month for the Panthers.

"Coach Brohm calls me once a week and I call him once and a while, too," Stoudt said. "I talked to him about two days ago. We were just catching up and he was making sure I was coming down for that visit – he just wanted to see what was going on."

Stoudt earned Ohio Capital Conference Offensive Player of the Year, Columbus Dispatch Offensive Player of the Year, Division 1 First Team All-Ohio and was a finalist for Ohio's Mr. Football Award this year.
