Atlanta St. Pius X kicker Chris Philpott is one of the nation's top kickers, but the 6-foot, 186-pounder was still searching for his first scholarship offer.
That offer finally came and he decided to accept the offer earlier this evening.
Philpott, the nation's No. 10 kicker, committed to Louisville special teams coach Mark Nelson.
"I was really impressed with the football program, the coaches, and the facilities," he said. "I know that I have very big shoes to fill as Louisville all-time leading scorer Art Carmody is a senior."
Philpott has kicking in his blood. His father Robert was a collegiate player at the University of Dayton, and played professionally in his native country of Australia.
He took his official visit to Louisville back on Oct. 27. Philpott was also excited about Louisville because he has family close by in Cincinnati, and his parents are likely to move there once he graduates from St. Pius X.
"I want to think my kicking instructor, Mike McCabe of One-on-One Kicking," he said. "He's been extremely influential in my preparation for kicking at the next level."
