Louisville lands Georgia wideout

54222
Three-star Jonesboro (Ga.) wide receiver
Harry Douglas has given his
verbal commitment to Louisville.
"I went up there Dec. 20 for my official visit, and it
had everything I was looking for in a school," he said. "I really liked the
players and people up there most of all. They seemed to be a lot like me and my
personality. I also liked the school and what it had to offer in my major. I'm
looking to go into the law field."
Douglas (6-0, 160, 4.45) picked the Cardinals over
Cincinnati, South Florida, Missouri, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and West Virginia.
Louisville lost its head coach, John L. Smith, to
Michigan State shortly after Douglas made his official visit, but he said he was
pleased with the Cardinals' decision to hire Auburn offensive coordinator Bob
Petrino.
"I like him a lot," he said. "They picked a great guy to
replace the old coach. They both have the same philosophy of throwing the ball a
lot, so I liked that."
Douglas caught 43 passes for 829 yards and eight
touchdowns as a senior at Jonesboro.
