Randy Salmon, a 6'3, 290-pound defensive tackle from Stockbridge (GA) High, verbally committed to Louisville during his official visit this weekend.
"The people were real good and the facilities were great and everything academic-wise is set up to help me succeed," Salmon said. "I feel like this was the best choice I could make for myself on and off the field."
Coming into the visit, Salmon anticipated committing to the Cardinals. On his trip, time spent with the Louisville coaches and players helped cement his decision.
"The guys were real nice," Salmon said. "The football players were real nice and we went out. Rodney Gnat was my host. We went to the basketball game and the fan support was huge. We walked in and the place was packed. I had fun."
Salmon attended Louisville's basketball game against St. John's Saturday with assistant Ken Delgado – his future position coach.
"He showed me a lot of things and told me how powerful I was," Salmon said. "He showed me how he would tweak some things to help me be a better player. He was real good. He talked about formations and how we were going to run stuff."
