Louisville strong with Wilson

Torrian Wilson, a three-star offensive lineman, liked everything about his visit to Louisville. The No.19 offensive guard prospect nationally plans to make a few more visits before making a signing day decision. Are the Cardinals at the top of the list? Wilson spoke with InsideTheVille.com.....

Torrian Wilson enjoyed his visit to Louisville last weekend. It was a visit that moved the Cardinals into strong contention for the three-star offensive lineman's commitment.

"It was real good," Wilson said. "I liked everything. I like the coaches and I already had a relationship with them when they were at Florida. I just liked Louisville the city. The players are real cool and I got along with them real good. I liked their academic program and talked to a couple of the professors."


Louisville is in great position to land three-star OL Torrian Wilson.
He also spoke with Charlie Strong, who told the 6'4, 310-pound lineman he could make a quick impact for the Cardinals.

"It went real well," Wilson said. "He was telling me that they want me in the program and that they could use a guy like me. They're looking at me as a guard. I told him that Louisville is in my top [list] right now and that I'm going to make my decision on signing day."

Before he makes a decision, Wilson will make a few more visits. Wilson plans to visit Memphis (Jan. 16), Michigan (Jan. 23) and UCF (Jan. 29).

"This week I'm going to Memphis, next week I'm going to Michigan and the week after that I'm going to Central Florida," Wilson said. "They're all pretty much even right now. I'm giving every school in the running a chance."

Louisville might have an advantage because of Corvin Lamb and Michaelee Harris – two Northwestern teammates who have committed to play for the Cardinals next season. Lamb and Harris, along with teammate Todd Chandler, visited UofL together last weekend.

"Every five minutes it was all about 'you've got to be a Cardinal.' They were always in my head telling me that," Wilson said. "They kept telling me and Todd that. That will be a slight factor because I played with those guys in high school and I blocked for Corvin and Michaelee. I wouldn't mind going to the next level and blocking for those guys. That could be a factor."

The biggest factors in Wilson's decision, though, will be a chance to play early and academics. Wilson plans to major in Business Management.

"Early playing time is an important factor and I was talking to one of their professors and their [Louisville] class size isn't as big as normal universities so if you need help get that with the professors," Wilson said. "I think that's a big deal for me because I like smaller classes so I could get help if I need it."
