Late qualifying DB visiting Louisville

Louisville continues to beat the bushes in search of defensive help for next season. More than a week after signing linebacker Antwon Canady out of the Kansas junior college ranks, the Cardinals have thrown their hat into the ring for Kardell Dunning, a late qualifying DB from Glades Central (FL) High standout.

Louisville continues to beat the bushes in search of defensive help for next season. More than a week after signing linebacker Antwon Canady out of the Kansas junior college ranks, the Cardinals have thrown their hat into the ring for Kardell Dunning, a late qualifying DB from Glades Central (FL) High standout.

"I think he's taking a visit to Louisville next week – he's going there Sunday and coming back Tuesday," Glades Central athletic director Henry Cook told InsideTheVille.com last week. "He's a late qualifier."

After receiving a qualifying standardized test score recently, Cook turned to the internet to generate interest in the 6-0, 185-pound Dunning. So Cook compiled a highlight tape, uploaded it to youtube.com and waited for the telephone to start ringing.

It did.

Michigan, North Carolina, Louisville and Syracuse are just a few of the programs who called to express interest in Dunning, a hard-hitting, sure-tackling DB.

"There are quite a few schools that have shown interest," Cook said. "I put a tape on YouTube for him and that garnered a lot of interest from several universities. So he's just taking his time and trying to make a decision on where he wants to go to school."

Besides Louisville, Cook said Dunning would also visit Michigan before making his decision.
