Things have been interesting for Todd Chandler. First he was committed to Miami. Then is was USF. Chandler, a defensive tackle standout from Miami Northwestern, has now officially visited Syracuse, Colorado State, and Louisville. He came away impressed by all three schools.
"I love the history at Syracuse," Chandler said. "I love the players. They coaches are great towards you. I like the town and don't mind the weather.
"Colorado State was an all-around good visit. I like the town and the players. I bonded with those guys.
"I was at Louisville earlier this month. It was pretty good. Coach (Charlie) Strong and I have had a strong relationship since he was at Florida. Overall it was a good trip. They are going to have a good scheme. They just need some players because Strong will turn it around."
At this time Chandler has only one other visit and that's to Florida State (1-29) at the end of the month. He was scheduled to go to USF this weekend but he will have to cancel the visit.
"I have a family situation and can't go. But USF is still there. Coach (Jim) Leavitt got fired and that really opened up my recruiting. I was very disappointed. But you can't get mad or sad because it's a business,
"I am still talking with USF but I haven't talked with Skip Holtz yet. I don't know too much about him."
With all the schools courting Chandler does one currently stand out above the others?
"Louisville is my top team right now. I just like them and where they are going. Plus, Corvin (Lamb) and Michaelee (Harris) are recruiting me hard."
Lamb and Harris are both Louisville commitments.
Chandler, 6-0 and 290 pounds, says he will wait and make his decision on National Signing Day.
