California athlete commits to U of L

Pomona (Calif.) High School running back Titus Teague became the seventh member of Louisville's 2009 recruiting class when he gave an oral commitment to defensive coordinator Ron Enlgish yesterday.

Though he's rushed for 1,032 yards and seven scores thus far this season, Teague's future in red and black likely rests at the cornerback position.

"We talked to coach English (on Wednesday) and he told him he was coming to Louisville," Pomona coach Don Cayer told Jody Demling. "He's an outstanding athlete and a great kid. He transferred to us from another school this summer and has been great."

"They recruited him as a defensive back and right now because of his size and speed, he projects on the defensive side. But we felt like and Louisville thinks if he can get in the weight room and put on some weight and increase his speed then he might be able to play running back."

In his most recent game, Teague rushed for 208 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also went off for 252 and 225 yards in two earlier games this season.

He plans to visit U of L on the weekend of the West Virginia game.

Yeah, it is about time. I mean we just couldn't land that seventh recruit. We wanted to, but we just couldn't do it. (Rips off Tressel's sweater vest and punches him in the stomach).
