Last year's Division IV Ohio state championship star, Creston Norwayne cornerback Trevahn Beery, reported earlier this fall that Louisville was the team showing the most early interest. This past weekend the class of 2014 prospect had a chance to attend a game at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
"That was my first time going down there," Beery said. "Two weeks ago I went to Cincinnati and I thought that was a big stadium, but going down to Louisville on Saturday - that place was double the size of Cincinnati. The fan base was amazing and it was so nice down there."
Beery had been communicating with Louisville coaches via mail and Facebook, but on Saturday was able to chat with defensive backs coach Tommy Restivo in person.

"He was just telling me they really need to get some taller corners," Beery said. "They don't have any corners committed to them in 2013 yet, and he wanted to talk about me to the head defensive coordinator. He wanted me to call him at least once a week just to keep a good relationship with them and see what happens from there."
Louisville is still the school Beery cites as showing the most interest early in his junior year. Missouri has also started to show new interest, while teams like Cincinnati and Illinois remain in contact as well.
Norwayne will look to cap off a perfect 10-0 regular season this coming weekend before heading into the post-season to defend their state title. Beery's three-interception game against record-setting quarterback Maty Mauk in last year's state title game has kept teams from testing him much as a junior, but the 6-foot, 160-pound prospect has intercepted two passes this fall.
