Watson's visit to Louisville helps the Cards

Louis Watson, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back from St. Paul's H.S. in Mobile, Ala., made an official visit to the University of [tm]Louisville[/tm] this weekend, and he told Cardinalsports.com that the trip helped the Cardinals' chances.

"Yeah, it helped them," Watson said from the airport as he waited to return to [tm]Alabama[/tm]. The two-star prospect has already visited [tm]Purdue[/tm] and [tm]Mississippi State[/tm], and he will visit [tm]Marshall[/tm] on Jan. 18. "The trip went well. I really enjoyed it."

While he didn't make a commitment, Watson said he enjoyed what he saw, saying the highlight of the trip came as he toured the city at night. "It was real beaufitul. The city was nice," he commented. "We went downtown and we basically toured downtown
and the campus. And I just fell in love with it."

Watson said UofL defensive coordinator Ron English plans to make an in-home visit with him later this week, and Steve Kragthorpe may visit with the player before signing day.

One of the big items on Watson's list of importance is academics, and he seemed impressed with what the Cardinals had to offer. "They have one of the top med(ical) schools in the country," he said. "That
would be a great help to my major in kinesiology."
