Lartey to sign with Louisville?

Three-star cornerback Emmanuel Lartey has already made official visits to Louisville and South Carolina State. Lartey was hoping to visit Mississippi State this weekend but didn't make the trip. updates his status.

"I didn't go to Mississippi State," Emmanuel Lartey said.

That likely means the SEC's Bulldogs are now out of the mix. That leaves two schools - Louisville and South Carolina State - still in the running three days prior to National Signing Day.

"On signing day it will probably be Louisville," said Lartey. "We're going to have a ceremony at 8 o'clock in the morning at school."

New Louisville defensive coordinator Brent Guy made a trip to College Park, Georgia last week to visit with Lartey but didn't drop of a binding National Letter of Intent for him to sign on Feb. 4 – the day high school prospects around the nation can make their commitments official.

"They said they were going to fax it (letter of intent) to my coach this week," Lartey said. "He was just explaining to me what they do and stuff. He said they like the way I attack the ball, my speed and how physical I play."

Lartey is still awaiting a qualifying SAT score for freshman eligibility. He recently took the SAT but is still awaiting his scores. How that will affect his signing day plans remains unclear.

"I'm not qualified right now," Lartey said. "Two weeks ago was the first time I've taken the SAT."

Stay tuned this week for Lartey's signing day plans.
