Lartey headed to Louisville?

Emmanuel Lartey, a three-star cornerback from College Park (GA) Banneker, recently received a qualifying ACT score. Now, he's looking for a college that has room for him next season. Is's No. 50 cornerback headed to Louisville?

Louisville offered Emmanuel Lartey a scholarship early in the recruiting process, but the talented defensive back signed with Coffeyville (KS) C.C. on national signing day because he didn't have a qualifying test score at the time. Now with his qualifying ACT score in the books – he received a 22 on his most recent attempt - Lartey is hoping Louisville has room for him next season.

"That's one of the teams we're waiting to hear from," Lartey said. "They had offered me before signing day and thought that I was going to make it but I signed with a JUCO team. I signed with Coffeyville – that's the junior college team Louisville wanted me to go to."

Lartey said his coach contacted Louisville last week. Lartey said Monday that he is still awaiting word from the Cardinals.

"I just sent my scores to them (Louisville) and I'm waiting to hear back from them," Lartey said. "We haven't contacted any other schools yet because we're waiting to see what Louisville says. My coach said we'll probably hear back from them this week."

Akron and South Carolina State are also possibilities, according to Lartey.
