OL Mike Donoghue commits to Louisville

The Cardinals near win against Miami in the Orange Bowl seemed to be enough for Mike Donoghue of Covington Catholic to make the decision to commit to Louisville.

3-star prospect Mike Donoghue of Covington (KY) Catholic High School became the second offensive lineman to commit to Louisville when he informed the Cardinals coaching staff of his decision on Tuesday evening.

"Yes he did, he gave a verbal commitment to Louisville," said Covington Catholic head coach Lynn Ray.

The 6-foot-3, 290-pound lineman had long favored both Louisville and Kentucky over heavy interest from Cincinnati, Boston College and Indiana.

"I've been coaching here for over 30 years and he probably has the best feet that I have seen," continued Ray. "He has extremely quick feet and is an agressive player on the football field."

The self-proclaimed Kentucky fan made the decision to commit to Louisville after seeing the Cardinals race to a 4-1 start, a No. 15 ranking in the Associated Press poll, the school's first appearance in the official BCS ratings and the near victory at Miami.

"I think that it's the perfect fit for Louisville and Mike," said Ray.

On Wednesday evening, Donoghue was selected to the Northern Kentucky All-Star, which is voted on by the Northern Kentucky High School Coaches Association.

Donoghue, the seventh commitment for Louisville on the season, joins Darius Mann, Maurice Grinter, Josh Byrom, JuJuan Spillman, Blake Boyd and Steven Black as U of L pledges.
