Recent Louisville commit Wales visiting WKU this weekend

Anthony “Ace” Wales committed to Louisville Monday, telling the Louisville Courier-Journal he wanted “to be the face of Louisville football.”

But the former Louisville Central High School running back is still taking his earlier scheduled official visit to WKU this weekend.

A verbal commitment does not bind a student-athlete to a school, only a signed letter-of-intent. This means Wales could rescind his commitment to Louisville and not face any NCAA repercussions.

Wales is the 14th ranked all-purpose running back in the nation according to

He ran for 2,784 yards in 2011, leading Central to the Class 3A state championship.

Other visitors for the weekend include:

-Jamie Gilmore, running back. Ranked as the No. 9 all-purpose running back in the country by Rivals. Gilmore’s list is trimmed down to WKU, South Florida and Temple.

-Devante Terrell, defensive tackle. Also looking at South Florida, Ball State, Missouri.

-Brooks Abbott, kicker. Abbott recently played in the Army All-American game.

-Andy Pappanastos, kicker. Holds the Alabama high school career field goal record.

-Calvin Washington, defensive end. Junior college player currently enrolled at Eastern Arizona Community College.

-Brett Harrington, cornerback. Also considering Akron and Buffalo.

Additional recruits will be visiting the weekend of Jan. 27-29. Most recruits submit their binding letter-of-intent to the school of their choice on National Signing Day, Feb. 1.
