Nicholas 'Nico' Law, a three-star safety from Forrestville, MD, is expected to visit Louisville Thursday. The 6-3, 190-pound Law recently halved his list and the Cardinals made the cut. has the latest.

Nicholas Law, a three-star safety from Maryland, told that he will make an unofficial visit to Louisville Thursday with his family.

Law, 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, is one of the top defensive backs on the east coast and holds offers from several Big East programs, including Louisville, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Syracuse and Rutgers.

A priority recruiting target for several Big East programs, Louisville assistant Larry Slade has convinced Law, who also plans to visit Cincinnati this week, to check out the Cardinals.

"Coach Slade made Louisville sound like a real good place for me," Law said. "I just want to see it for myself. I've talked to him a couple times on the phone. The last time I spoke to him was about two weeks ago. I think he's a cool guy. I looked him up..he's put a lot of safeties into the pros. He sounds like he knows what he's talking about."

Law, who holds 15 offers, has also visited Maryland and Virginia this summer. Both programs have offered the 52nd-best safety in the nation.

"The only other visits I've taken this summer are to UVA and Maryland," Law said. "I liked both of them. UVA I liked the coaches, the environment and they had nice players. Maryland is the home school, I love the home school."

Though Law is interested in Virginia and Maryland, two programs within a short drive of his hometown, Forrestville, MD., staying close to home won't be the main factor in his college decision. "Location is not really a factor but I don't want to be too far from home," Law said. "I wouldn't say Louisville or Cincinnati are too far."

As for a decision, Law plans to make several official visits this fall before he settles on a school. "I'm going to take some officials," Law said. "Depending on how I like Louisville, I might take an official visit to Louisville. I don't have a leader. I've narrowed my [list] to eight schools from the 15 who have offered and Louisville is one of those eight schools."

Law also said that Virginia, Cincinnati and Maryland also made the cut.
