Hazelett still an option for Louisville?

Ed Hazelett, a three-star tight end from Indianapolis, verbally committed to Western Kentucky a few weeks ago. Saturday, the 6-foot-8, 265-pound Hazelett paid Louisville a visit. Are the Cardinals still an option for the talented Hazelett?

"What it is with Western (Kentucky) is it's a soft verbal," Ed Hazelett told InsideTheVille.com. "Right now I'm still considering a couple schools – Louisville, Michigan and Western Kentucky. Those are the only three right now. I'm looking to play on a bigger stage."

Hazelett made an unofficial visit to Louisville Saturday to watch the Cardinals upset No. 14 South Florida 24-20. Hazelett, who travelled south with Warren Central teammate Eric Williams, a 6-0, 200-pound running back, enjoyed the day at PJCS.

"It was real nice and the fans were real supportive," Hazelett said. "It was a good game and they pulled out a big win against a good team. So it was real nice."

While in town, Hazelett talked with Jeff Brohm and gave the Louisville offensive coordinator some recent game film.

"I talked to coach Brohm mostly," Hazelett said. "I didn't get a chance to talk with any of the other coaches. I talked to a couple of the players. Coach Brohm said they want to get me back up there because they've got some more home games and get me on an official visit once the season is over with so we can go more into detail. I gave him my film from our first sectional game."

Though he plays tight end for his high school team, some project Hazelett as an offensive tackle in college.

"(Coach Brohm) said they would try me at tight end and give me a year to prove myself," said Hazelett.
