Eteyen Edet visited Louisville –his stated dream school - last weekend but didn't commit to the Cardinals. The 6'2, 235-pound linebacker from Maryland will take the SAT's and make an ACC visit this weekend.

"It was real good and I had a great time but there was no commitment. But I had a great time," Edet said.

A few days before visiting Louisville, Edet told InsideTheVille.com that a commitment to the Cardinals was a strong possibility. Any reason that didn't happen?

"No, not at all," Edet said. "That's a great place to be. There's nothing wrong with Louisville. It's a great program. Coach (Ron) English, the defensive coordinator from Michigan, is a great guy. Coach (Kragthorpe) is a great guy. Coach (Tony) Alford, who is my recruiter, is a great guy. Everything was straight. I just want to see other things – see what Maryland is talking about. I never thought I be recruited to play football and I'm just trying to live this dream to the fullest."

Louisville recently learned that junior middle linebacker Lamar Myles, the team's leading tackler, was heading to the National Football League Draft. The Cardinals are hoping Edet will sign with them and help out at Myles' old position.

"They want me as a MIKE – a true middle linebacker," Edet said. "They want me running the show. They need help at linebacker and they talked about me playing as a freshman."

Edet said he's planning to go to Maryland this Friday, head back home Saturday to take the SAT and head back to College Park to finish up his official visit. A visit to Michigan State before signing day is also a possibility.

"I'm going to Maryland this weekend and I still have to talk to Michigan State and see if they still want to set up a visit," said Edet. "I wouldn't say it's a three team race but those are three programs I'm strongly considering.

"I have no leader right now," Edet added. "I'm just sitting back and enjoying my life. Right now I do not know what university I will be attending in the fall."
