2010 WR favors Louisville

Chicago (ILL.) Clark junior wide receiver Earlzo Singleton is getting a lot of big-time attention after going for more than 1,000 receiving yards last season. The 5-9, 165-pound Singleton is already thinking about college favorites and plans to make an early decision.

"I've got offers from Louisville, Boise State and Oklahoma State and I'm hearing from Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Kansas," Earlzo Singleton said. "I love Louisville. I've been to their campus with my cousins over the summer and just loved it. Coach (Nord) sends me mail every week."

As a sophomore, Singleton had 52 reecptions for 1,013 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those numbers caught Louisville's attention and assistant Greg Nord has been made it a point to keep in touch with the talented wide out.

"I love the fan base and I watched the (Kansas State) game the other day," said Singleton, who has family members living in Louisville. "It was a good win. I felt like Louisville needs someone to stretch the field and I feel like I can do that. I think I'd fit right in with their offense."

Singleton said Nord invited him to come down on an unofficial visit for Louisville's season-opener against Kentucky but the Chicago standout couldn't attend. He does plan to make a trip to see a Louisville game later this season.

"I got invited to their first game of the year against Kentucky but I didn't have a way to get down there," Singleton said. "I'm definitely going to get there for a game this season when we have a bye-week."

Singleton says he enjoys the recruiting process but is looking to make an early college decision. That could be good news for Steve Kragthorpe's Cardinals.

"Louisville is my frontrunner out of all the schools," Singleton said. "Louisville is No. 1. Southern Miss is No. 2. Oklahoma State is No. 3. Boise State is No. 4. And Indiana at No. 5 rounds it out."
