The 247Sports Crystal Ball continues to trend from Kentucky to Louisville on four-star tight end Leonard Taylor, who is at U of L for his official visit this weekend.

Taylor — a 6-foot-6 prospect from Ohio — took an official visit to UK last month, and Ohio recruiting analyst Bill Greene told the Herald-Leader last week that he thought the Cats still had the best shot to land his commitment. The hang-up was that Kentucky had started recruiting Taylor as a defensive end, and tight end might still be his preferred position in college.

Four-star football recruit Leonard Taylor is expected to take his official visit to Louisville this weekend, and there’s a new prediction in favor of the Cardinals on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page.

Mike Hughes, who covers U of L for 247Sports, logged a pick for the Cardinals on Taylor’s page Thursday morning. A large majority of the predictions for Taylor have gone in favor of the Wildcats, who have been recruiting him for more than a year.

UK has been recruiting the versatile Taylor — a 6-foot-6 prospect from Ohio — as a defensive end, but he’s been projected as a tight end for most of his high school career.

U of L hosted Koprivica for an unofficial visit last weekend, and the Cardinals have taken a sizable early lead on the star player’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page.

Five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford is ready for the first official visit of his recruitment.

Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — will take an official visit to Vanderbilt this weekend, his father told the Herald-Leader on Monday.

Tim Langford also said that the family is scheduled to have in-home visits with coaches from North Carolina and Indiana this week. Langford’s recruiting list also includes Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and UCLA, and there has been a steady stream of college coaches in New Albany to see the star player since the fall recruiting period opened Sept. 9.

Langford

247Sports analyst Andrew Slater logged a Crystal Ball prediction Sunday morning that projects five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford to Louisville.

Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — has scholarship offers from UK, Louisville, Duke, North Carolina, Indiana and several other top schools. Duke was the favorite on Langford’s Crystal Ball page coming into the weekend, but that could change with Slater’s pick.

Langford’s high school gym is less than 10 miles from the Yum Center, and he attended several Louisville games this past season. He also attended Big Blue Madness and hosted UK Coach John Calipari for an in-home visit last month.

247Sports ranks Langford as the No. 3 overall recruit in the 2018 class.
