Dalcourt narrows focus to four programs

Courtney Dalcourt has narrowed his recruitment to four schools that he will visit this fall before making a college decision. Louisville is on the Franklin(KY)Simpson star's short list. Do the Cardinals have what Dalcourt is looking for?

With his season underway, Courtney Dalcourt plans to start visiting his prospective suitors soon.

"I am in the process right now of setting up my visit schedule. I will be going to Louisville, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, and Central Michigan for my officials," said Dalcourt. "I am actually going to Western Kentucky for their game this weekend, but I have not been anywhere yet this season. I will probably start making my visits in a couple of weeks."

While Western Kentucky received a visit this past Saturday the Hilltoppers don't appear to be a serious contender for Dalcourt's services. What is it about Louisville, Kentucky, Central Michigan and Georgia Tech that have caught his eye?

"With these schools it's just the reputation they have. And the tradition of the schools on the D-1 level and having very good football programs," said Dalcourt.

Dalcourt has devised a list of what he will be paying close attention to while on his trip.

"First thing will be education-wise how the schools will set me up for being in a career. And then I will also be looking for a family atmosphere. It is always important to be somewhere you feel welcome," said Dalcourt. "I and just make sure that is the place I want to be for the next four years. I mean the football part is great, but I am really looking for the education."

One issue that Dalcourt will really pay close attention to will be how each team plans to use his versatile athletic talents.

"Georgia Tech is looking at me as a quarterback. And Central Michigan is also recruiting me as a quarterback. But as far as Kentucky and Louisville I really need to talk to the coaches to find out how the want to use me, said Dalcourt. "Really I want to have a chance to sit down with the coaches and talk to them about what they want me to do and see if it is something that I really want to do."

Heading into his visits, Dalcourt claims no favorites and plans to take all four of his visits before making a decision.
