Stout makes decision

Tampa (FL) Wharton offensive lineman Hunter Stout tired of the recruiting process and decided it was time to make a decision. Wednesday,'s No. 103 offensive guard, called the school of his choice and let them know he's in the fold for next season.

"I just committed to Louisville," Stout told Wednesday evening. "Me and my dad have been thinking about it this week and we were just tired of wasting time. We just called coach (Brent) Myers and told him I want to be a Cardinal. Coach Myers said I made his day and he was happy to have me."

Stout made visits to Louisville and Auburn the past two weeks. When the Tigers didn't come through with a scholarship offer, the 6'4, 270-pound standout decided to cast his lot with the Cardinals.

"The main thing is coach Myers, who I think is one of the top offensive line coaches in the nation," Stout said. "The facilities are top of the line and you can't get any better. They have a will to win there and I think they're going to start winning games there. They want to win and I want to be there to win with them."

Stout also considered Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic.

Stout said Louisville recruited him as an offensive guard. "I'll most likely redshirt next season," he said.
