"I heard from him last night," Petersen said Monday night. "It went well. He said my scholarship is being honored and he looks forward to meeting me on my official visit in January. He said he was impressed with me so I assume he looked at my film."
"He sounded like a very nice guy and I look forward to meeting him," said Petersen. "He's very down to earth and seems concerned about his players."
Zachary Hundertmark, a two-star offensive lineman from Princeton, New Jersey, also heard from Strong this past weekend.
"He called yesterday and I also talked to him last week," Hundertmark said. "It went great. He said he's going to honor the scholarship and he likes me. He seems like a good guy. I watched the press conference and I believe in him."
Hundertmark said he plans to visit Louisville before he makes a final decision about his college choice.
"I'm going to visit in the near future," Hundertmark said. "Possibly in January. I'm still planning to sign with Louisville. I think everything is going in the right direction with Charlie Strong. I'm going to go down there and check things out for myself and see the environment. There are other schools that are talking to me but I'm still [committed] to Louisville."
