Funderburk closing in on decision?

Florida safety Steve Funderburk hoped Louisville would offer during his official visit this weekend. The 6-3, 195-pound Funderburk received good news from the Cardinals while in town and might be close to committing to Louisville coach Charlie Strong....

Steve Funderburk had a great time on his official visit to Louisville and will likely commit to the Cards this week. "I had a good time," Funderburk said. "I like the players there. Charlie Strong is a cool guy and knows what he's talking about. All the other coaches are really good and they know how to win."

The big question for Funderburk this weekend was if UofL would offer a scholarship. Louisville made Funderburk an offer while he was on the visit and the underrated prospect said he intends to commit to Louisville in the next few days.

"They offered me a scholarship," Funderburk said. "I'm going to make a decision by Wednesday. Louisville is at the top, they are my favorite."

Is Funderburk considering any other schools besides UofL?

"Not any more," Funderburk said. "I want to talk things over with my parents and coaches. I think the coaches are coming down this week. Coach [Kenny] Carter is coming down Wednesday and I believe Coach Strong is coming down Thursday."

Louisville is recruiting the 6-3, 195-pound Funderburk as a safety. He made 91 tackles and six interceptions as a senior. Funderburk spent a lot time during his visit talking with defensive coordinator Vance Bedford.

"He's a great coach," Funderburk said. "He likes aggressive players and he was telling me he likes how I hit."

Funderburk was hosted by one of the Cardinals redshirt freshmen offensive linemen. He said he enjoyed hanging out with UofL's players on his visit.

"He said that he's happy Coach Strong got there," Funderburk said. "We got to see the town. It's a great city that's based around the school. I really liked that."

Funderburk visited Louisville this weekend with teammate Deon Rogers, a three-star linebacker is currently committed to Georgia.

"Deon said he's considering going to Louisville, too," Funderburk said.
