Another Katy prospect looking at Louisville

Louisville continues to spread its recruiting roots in Texas. The Cardinals and assistant coach Tony Alford are looking hard at Katy H.S., and now they are in on a speedy defensive back from the school.

Terrence Frederick, a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder who said he runs a 4.45 forty, is one of several Katy players receiving Division I attention. Louisville is also pursuing four-star running back Aundre Dean.

Frederick plays at a position where the Cardinals need help - the defensive backfield. "I found out (about an offer) about three or four weeks ago," he told Cardinalsports.com. He said the offer was connected to Dean. The two were hanging out together and Dean introduced him to Tony Alford. Then he passed highlight film onto Louisville, which he said eventually resulted in an offer.

"I like everything about (Louisville)," he said. "I've seen stuff on the computer and I talk to them a lot. They came down here and I talked to them about (going there). I like talking to them. We talk like we've already been together ten years. They have a really good staff and everything."

Frederick said he keeps in regular contact with the coaches at Louisville, and he talked to Coach Alford within the past week.

Currently with offers from Abilene College and Wichita State, Frederick is also getting interest from Arizona State and Baylor. The cornerback said he picked off eight passes last year. With his speed and ability, one thing that may be keeping many Division I schools at bay is that he has yet to take his SAT and won't do so until January 26, just a little over a week before National Signing Day. That will likely delay any official visits or decisions until the actual signing period begins. He said he hopes to take a visit to UofL once he gets his qualifying test score in.

On the field, Frederick's quickness is what attracts attention from colleges. "I think I'm good with my feet," he said. "I'm quick. I see the ball and I react. Wherever the ball is I'm going to try to get there."
