Louisville lands another Frankfort standout

Louisville already had one verbal commitment from a Frankfort, Kentucky prospect - running back Quan Weaver. Thursday, the Cardinals picked up a second commitment from the state capital - Western Hills 6-5, 240-pound QB/DE Dylan Curry.

Two days after landing an offer from Louisville, Dylan Curry paid the Cardinals a visit Thursday and gave Steve Kragthorpe a verbal commitment.

Curry, a 6-5, 240-pound quarterback/defensive end from Frankfort (KY) Western Hills, played quarterback last season but likely projects as a tight end or defensive end in college.

"I talked to Coach (Matt) Wells and Coach Kragthorpe Tuesday morning and they said they were going to make an offer and they did," Curry said. "So I told them I was going to wait until Thursday and come up there and visit the campus and commit in person. And that's what I did. I'm probably done with (recruiting) because I feel happy about Louisville. That's where I wanted to go because that's where I feel comfortable."

Curry attended Louisville's camp last weekend and impressed the coaching staff enough to earn a scholarship offer. Though he plays quarterback and defensive end, Louisville worked him out at tight end and that's probably where he'll play for the Cardinals.

"I went to their one-day camp last Sunday," Curry said. "I did tight end the whole time. They said they're probably going to sign me as an athlete because they're still not sure where I'm going to play. They liked how I did at tight end. The blocking stuff was new to me but I picked it up pretty quick."

As a sophomore in 2007, Curry was one of the Top 20 passing quarterbacks in Kentucky, completing 92-of-206 passes for 130 yards per game and nine touchdowns.

As a junior, Curry, who also played defensive end, passed for 1,562 yards and ten touchdowns. He also rushed for 99 yards and three other scores, while also making 19 tackles on defense.

Curry also had an offer from Ball State. He received interest from Indiana, Kentucky, Western Kentucky, and Purdue.

Curry, who runs a 4.8 forty-yard dash, also participates in track and field at Western Hills.

Curry is Louisville's seventh commitment in the Class of 2010. Dallas (TX) Highland Park quarterback Luke Woodley also committed to the Cardinals this week.

Louisville's 2010 recruiting class is currently ranked No. 66 nationally and seventh in the Big East in the Scout.com team rankings. With seven commitments, Louisville is tied with Rutgers for the fifth-most 2010 commitments in the Big East.
