Ace Wales Commits To Louisville

OK, now it's more than a tad absurd.

According to The Courier-Journal's Jody Demling, Central High School running back Anthony "Ace" Wales has committed to Louisville.

Wales had previously planned to visit Western Kentucky and wait until early February to make his decision, but he told Demling on Monday that he didn't need any more time to figure out where he wanted to be.

"I want to be the face of Louisville football," Wales said. "Two weeks ago, I told coach (Charlie) Strong and coach (Vance) Bedford I was pretty sure I wanted to go to Louisville but I had to see Kentucky and make sure it was the right place for me.

"I am just excited to get it over with and be a Cardinal."

Wales finished his high school career as the third leading rusher in the history of Kentucky football.

Two running back commitments in one day has to reverse the basketball curse. It's just basic science.
