It has all come down to one visit for Alliance (Ohio) Marlington wide receiver Troy Pascley before a decision will most likely be made.
Currently in the off-season workout routing at his high school, Pascley has found time to check out Michigan State, Ohio State, and Bowling Green. With offers from Michigan State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Miami of Ohio, and Akron among others, he is now looking to head down to Louisville, on the last weekend in July with an offer and a decision in mind.
"Louisville is my favorite right now," Pascley said. "I feel like I fit in best with their offense and the staff is real nice with the way they've treated me. I didn't get a chance to go to camp so they just want to see me in person to make it official on the offer."
"After my trip or on my trip I'll make my commitment."
With Louisville in a very firm lead, other teams look unlikely to challenge. However, Michigan State also appears to be not completely out of this race. Anything can happen with those two teams, but it was a family decision that put one above the other.
"We just sat down as a group and talked about everything so that I could be making the best decision academically and athletically," Pascley said. "We decided Louisville was that school."
Considering a commitment to a certain school is most likely, will that pledge be a solid one?
"I think it would be," he said. "I would take trips to a couple of football games if I had that chance, but nothing would change my mind."
