Huge recruiting weekend for Strong, U of L

Charlie Strong will continue his quest to lay claim to the title of greatest recruiter in the history of the world this weekend when he plays host to at least 14 senior prospects, three of whom committed to the new coach without seeing the U of L campus.

In addition to committed defensive end B.J. Butler, Jody Demling breaks down the 13 other recruits who are currently in town.

The Cardinals will also be hosting four Miami Northwestern stars - wide receiver Michaelee Harris, running back Corvin Lamb, defensive tackle Todd Chandler and offensive lineman Torrian Wilson. Harris and Lamb have already committed, while Chandler had previously committed to Miami (Fla.) and is currently committed to South Florida.

Shelby (N.C.) athlete Reggie Wilkins has already made a verbal to North Carolina State but will visit the Cardinals.

Also visiting is Kentucky's top player - Central linebacker Tim Patterson, Summerville (Ga.) speedy running back Senorise Perry, Montvale (N.J.) wide receiver Kai Dominguez and running back Kamal Hogan, Virginia Beach (Va.) athlete Zach Dunston, Paramus (N.J.) offensive tackle Dan Foose and Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson defensive back Chris Sharpe and defensive end Malcolm Strong.

The Orlando Sentinel takes a closer look at the three Floridians who could end up being enormous gets for Strong:

  • Torrian Wilson, OG, 6-4, 315, Miami Northwestern: The No. 2-ranked guard in the country by and No. 53-ranked player in the Sentinel's Florida Top 100, Wilson had committed to Stanford before decommitting last month. He also has visits to Tennessee and Michigan coming up.
  • Todd Chandler, DT, 6-1, 290, Miami Northwestern: The No. 16 DT in the country by Rivals and 54th-ranked player in the Sentinel's Florida Top 100, has been bouncing around a bit. He committed to Miami, but was frustrated by lack of communication and so he switched to USF after Jim Leavitt visited his home. But he's still open and also plans to visit Syracuse, Michigan and FIU.
  • Kadron Boone, WR, 6-1, 190, Ocala Trinity Catholic: Boone, the No. 17-ranked WR in the country by and the Sentinel's No. 31-ranked player in the Florida Top 100, was left in a state of shock when Texas Tech, where he had committed, fired Mike Leach. He hasn't decommitted Tech yet, but he will be in Louisville this weekend.
