Koehne enjoys trip; Eyes official return

Cathedral (IN) OL Kyle Koehne has the size and strength to be a dominant tackle at the college level. Several BCS programs want his signature this February. With his official visit schedule beginning this weekend, Koehne took time for an unofficial visit to the University of Louisville. And he liked it enough that he is planning a return trip.

With senior OT George Bussey playing in his final season at the University of Louisville talent is always at a premium on the perimeter of the offensive line. Cathedral (IN) OT Kyle Koehne took an unofficial visit to the Louisville campus and both could be a perfect fit for the other.

In trying to find his perfect match Louisville seemed to strike the right cord with the 6-6 300 pound prospect.

"It was good I enjoyed meeting Coach Brohm and Coach Myers in person, I liked them both a lot they both have really good personalities. I was real impressed with the facilities and it was a good game," said Koehne. "I was coming up there for the coaches. That is the most important thing for me and I like them the most."

Koehne made an unofficial visit to Louisville last weekend and was introduced to the Battle of the Bluegrass.

"The stadium was really nice and it was definitely a great game day atmosphere. And that is to be expected with a big rivalry," said Koehne.

"On this trip I didn't get to see much of the city. Next time I would like to see more of the campus and get more info about their academics," said Koehne. "And from what I have seen it is a great school with good alumni support and a great fan base."

So with his first taste of the Derby City fresh in his mind Koehne will begin taking his official visits.

"This weekend I have a trip to Boston College then I will have one to Florida next. Then I will possibly officially visit Louisville and possibly NC State," said Koehne.

Koehne plans to make a decision after he takes a few visits.

"Hopefully it won't take me too long to make a decision. I want to find out all the information about the schools I am looking at and then make a decision," said Koehne.
