Louisville goes west for latest commitment

Louisville defensive coordinator Ron English went all the way out to California to land the Cardinals seventh 2009 commitment. Who's headed to the 'Ville?

Pomona (CA) H.S. coach Don Cayer told InsideTheVille.com Friday morning that 5-foot-11, 180-pound running back/defensive back Titus Teague committed to Louisville Wednesday night.

According to Cayer, the Cardinals offered Titus on Wednesday and the 2009 prospect immediately gave Louisville a commitment. Louisville is Teague's only scholarship offer to date. He also was receiving interest from Idaho, according to his coach.

Teague, who has rushed for 1,032 yards on 132 carries this season, is expected to play cornerback or safety for the Cardinals.

"Titus has family in Georgia and Louisville is a good fit for him," Cayer said. "Our assistant coach Johnny Brown got in touch with Ron English a few weeks ago and we sent him a disc on Monday on Titus.

"Coach English called back Wednesday and offered Titus a scholarship. Titus was so excited he couldn't say anything for a few minutes. He was very excited when he called coach English and gave him his verbal commitment."

Teague is scheduled to make an official visit to Louisville on Nov. 22 when the Cardinals host West Virginia.

"He's an athlete, that's what Louisville really liked," Cayer said. "They project him as a corner or possibly a safety. He really has good athleticism and he's a good kid - coachable kid."

Cayer said Teague is on target to qualify academically.

Teague is the third defensive back in the Cardinals 2009 recruiting class, joining Texas corner Zed Evans and Georgia safety Hakeem Smith. Bowling Green standout Shenard Holton is also expected to be a safety for the Cardinals.
