Five-Star Visitor

Chancey Aghayere

Five-star defensive end Chancey Aghayere made an unofficial visit to Louisville Thursday with Garland (TX) High teammate Jacques Caldwell. Will Caldwell's commitment to Louisville influence Aghayere? InsideTheVille.com has the latest.

Five-star defensive end Chancey Aghayere is currently making an unofficial visit to Louisville with Garland (TX) High teammate Jacques Caldwell.

Caldwell, a two-star speedster who can play multiple positions on both sides of the ball, verbally committed to the Cardinals Thursday during the visit.

Aghayere, rated the No. 6 defensive end in the nation by Scout.com, is one of the nation's most-sought defensive prospects. He's ranked one of the nation's Top 40 players.

Aghayere has Louisville listed in his Top 6 and plans to announce his college decision in September. He told Scout.com earlier this month that Texas is in the lead, but Louisville, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and California are also in the mix.

"I grew up following Texas," Aghayere told Scout.com recently. "Both my parents went there and it's not too far away. It would be nice if my friends and family would be able to see me play. I just like that they are a winning team and I love the campus. It's real big, but it's still a family atmosphere."

Might Caldwell's decision to attend Louisville influence Aghayere?

"I don't think Jacques decision will have any influence on Chancey," a source familiar with the situation told InsideTheVille.com. "He's a very strong-minded individual and he's committed to doing what's best for his future."

Aghayere is scheduled to make an official visit to Florida Sept. 15 and plans to announce his college two days later after returning from Gainesville. Whether or not Louisville can overcome the Longhorns or the defending national champions remains to be seen.

"I know Coach (Tony) Alford has recruited our area for a while and he does a great job recruiting down here in Texas," the source said. "I know Louisville has done a great job recruiting both Chancey and Jacques."

Aghayere collected 60 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and five sacks last season as a junior for Garland.
