Vero Beach (Fla.) cornerback Sean Paul claims nine offers at this time, but says one school has made a strong impression early on.
"Louisville is standing out," Paul said. "They were one of my first offers. They are just a school that I like a lot, but I have begun to build a good relationship with some other schools."
The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect says Boston College, Cincinnati, Florida Atlantic, Georgia State, Louisville, Memphis, Northern Illinois, South Alabama, and Western Kentucky have all offered. He talked about what has the Cardinals standing out amongst that bunch.
"I like Coach (Tommy) Restivo at Louisville a lot," Paul said. "He is the defensive backs coach. I have been talking to him for a while. He says that it is a family-type bond over there. He talks about how there are a lot of Florida athletes there. He says that I could fit right in. He wants me to check it out, come up there and visit."
The Sunshine State prospect says that Charlie Strong's team is his leader.
"At this point they are," Paul said. "It could change easily though. It will depend on what other schools offer and visits I am able to take. I am trying to stay open so I can take my time and make the right decision."
Paul, who previously camped at Miami, has yet to take any visits this year to check out schools showing interest in his services. He hopes to change that this summer.
"I haven't really gotten out to see schools," Paul said. "I am going to visit some schools this summer. I am going to a couple of camps. I will also be doing a lot of 7-on-7 with my team."
Florida State and Miami were mentioned by Paul as possible camp visits. He said he hopes to see other schools, but will have to see how his summer schedule works out.
He shared no specific timeline for making a decision.
As a junior, Paul recorded 32 tackles, an interception, seven pass deflections, a forced fumble, and blocked a punt.
