"I went to the game with Jordan Paschal," Render said. "It was basically a defensive game. It seems like they're strong point is defense. That's the reason I want to come in there because I can make an impact on their defense."
"I talked to my recruiting coach, Coach [Jeff] Lewis, but I didn't get to talk to my position coach (Ken) Delgado," said Render. "I talked to the coaching staff and they said they were going to offer me after the season because they've been focused on their team. They basically told me they were going to offer."
With heavy speculation that Louisville will make a coaching change after the season, Render said he's keeping an close on the situation for future developments.
"My [high school] coach, Coach [Maurice] Douglas told me there's supposed to be a coaching situation going on," Render said. "I don't think Coach Lewis really addressed what was going on with us."
Render said he's receiving strong interest from Toledo and Marshall. He said he plans to take official visits to Louisville, West Virginia and Marshall after the season. Render is still awaiting his first college offer.
"I'm supposed to take an official visit to Louisville in January," Render said.
Render also said he still favors Louisville. "The campus is very nice and they made me feel at home," Render said. "A lot of people knew me there during the visit and I felt like I was at home."
Render and Trotwood-Madison will play Winton Woods of Cincinnati this week in the regional finals. Render said he has made 65 tackles and six sacks this season.
"I think I've improved [a lot] this season," Render said. "I think I know the game better and it's become easier for me."
