Strong Switch? Dunn visits Louisville

Pleasure Ridge Park defensive lineman Brandon Dunn verbally committed to Kentucky last month. But Dunn re-opened his recruitment last week after Louisville made an offer. The 6'3, 275-pound Dunn will make an official visit to Louisville this weekend and could switch his commitment soon.

Brandon Dunn, a two-way lineman from PRP, got the offer he hoped for last week from Louisville head coach Charlie Strong. Dunn verbally committed to Kentucky in December, but visited Strong at UofL late last week and left campus with an offer from the Cardinals.

"Louisville offered me last Thursday," Dunn said. "I was glad they offered me because I always had Louisville in my heart. It opened my eyes and made me change my idea big time because everybody wants to play for Louisville that lives in Louisville, which I did growing up. That's a big accomplishment for me. I'll have my whole family cheering for me."

Dunn will make an official visit to Louisville this weekend. With a visit to UofL set, Kentucky appears to be in Dunn's rear-view mirror.

"It's a hard decision but I don't think I'm going to pass it up," Dunn said.

Dunn says that he wants to play for Strong and Louisville is the favorite heading into this weekend's visit.

"I felt like Coach Strong is a good man and good coach," Dunn said. "He was very down to earth. He really opened my eyes. He's going after players and it would be a privilege to play for him. I'll probably make a decision by the end of next week. I've re-opened everything."

Dunn could play defensive end or tackle in college. He runs a 4.95 forty, which is solid at his size. Dunn also plays basketball.

"He can play both positions," PRP coach Jason Hiser said. "I've told everybody that I definitely think this kid can hold 300 pounds and remain fast because he's pretty athletic. Even over the top of the center he's pretty good."
