Louisville stands out for Three-Star LB

Three-Star Cypress Bay (FL) LB Austin Gamble is the type of player any defense would love to have. He is looking at several places to call home and three schools stand out right now. Who is Louisville in competition with? We have the answers.

Standing at an imposing 6 foot 2 inches and 225 pounds Cypress Bay (FL) LB Austin Gamble is a physical presence on the football field. And it is that aggressive and physical style that has coaches pursuing the three-star standout. This is the nature of the game that new Defensive Coordinator Ron English and Linebackers Coach Bill Miller are trying to bring to the University of Louisville.

When we spoke to Gamble he said that intense style of play is his calling card.

"I'm very physical, explosive, fast, and I have play making ability," said Gamble. "And this summer I need to work on my hands to help getting off blocks and reading plays quicker."

Though Austin is familiar with Louisville, but he has yet to make a visit. Gamble also mentioned he has met the newest member of the coaching staff.

"I know in the past Louisville has been a very strong program. I had a chance to meet Coach Miller, and I think he's a great guy," said Gamble.

Gamble is receiving interest from several schools but says there are a few that stand out right now.

"I have offers from Mississippi State, FIU, and PITT," said Gamble. "Wake Forest and Wisconsin are also interested."

Austin says that he is wide open at this point but he did say three are in the forefront of his mind.

"There's really no favorite now, but Louisville, Wake Forest and Pittsburg stand out," said Gamble.

As he begins to narrow his Austin wants to look for a few areas of importance in his recruitment.

"Education, coaching, and overall atmosphere or feeling around the program," said Gamble.

Austin is still in the process of setting up a schedule to make visits, and says that a decision is probably still a ways off.

"I am probably going to wait until sometime after the fall season to make my decision," said Gamble.
