Louisville vaults to top of Chandler's list

Todd Chandler arrived in Louisville for his official visit Friday committed to South Florida. Sunday he left to head back home with the Cardinals at the top of his list.

"Louisville is No. 1 on my list right now," Chandler said.

Chandler didn't commit to Charlie Strong on his visit and plans to make a few more official visits before finalizing his college decision.

"The visit went awesome," Chandler said. "I have a really good bond with Coach Strong and the whole coaching staff. And all the recruits that were up there we all bonded. The crowd was really into it at the basketball game and they love Louisville. The weight room was real good and everything was nice up there."

Chandler, a four-star defensive tackle from Miami, will visit Syracuse next weekend, then trip to Memphis and Florida State. Asked if his decision would come down to Louisville and Florida State, Chandler admitted that it would, before adding a qualifier. With a coaching change at USF, Chandler said the Bulls are no longer in the mix.

"Yes, well, I'll say Syracuse is in there too because my uncle likes Syracuse," Chandler said. "I don't think I'll go to Memphis I'm just going there to see what they have to offer. It's probably going to come down to Louisville, Syracuse and Florida State. South Florida is out."

Louisville could have an edge because of Corvin Lamb and Michalee Harris, two of Chandler's teammates at Northwestern who have already committed to the Cardinals. Harris, Lamb and another teammate, offensive lineman Torrian Wilson, all made official visits to UofL this weekend.

"Corvin Lamb and Michaelee are going to have a real big impact on my decision because I played with those guys since sophomore year and we're real close friends and we'd love to play with each other in college," Chandler said. "They work on me every day for Louisville. They were working on me pretty hard this weekend."

Chandler confirmed that Wilson didn't commit to Louisville on the visit but said his 6'4, 320-pound teammate likes the Cardinals.

"Torrian is real high on Louisville, too," Chandler said. "It's all going to come down to signing day."
