Louisville battling for Trayvon Mullen

The news of Rivals250 cornerback Trayvon Mullen returning to Louisville for a visit over the weekend sent Cardinals' fans into a frenzy.

Mullen officially visited Louisville on the weekend of December 12th. Not many expected him to fly back up to Louisville on his own dime the weekend before National Signing Day.

Lucretia Peterman, Mullen's mother, couldn't get a good read from her son about his thoughts about the Louisville visit.

"Honestly, Trayvon says the same thing about every visit," Peterman said. "It's a blessing for us all, but he really doesn't know what he wants to do. I can't wait till it's all over with."

Although Mullen's actions indicate that Louisville will be a school that he's considering when he makes his National Signing Day decision, Peterman doesn't believe so.

"He's not interested in them at all," stated Peterman. "I know he's interested in his top three."

The top three, according to Peterman, is Clemson, Florida State, and LSU. However, she said that she was last informed that this was her son's top three last week, but she seemed pretty adamant that the top three was still accurate.

Florida State has long been considered the favorite for Mullen, but LSU and Clemson have been making a big push after his January official visits to both respective schools.

Peterman, the aunt of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, wanted her son, Jackson's cousin, to go to the Louisville visit over the weekend.

"I told him to go," said Peterman. "People are going to say and think all kinds of stuff. I will say that no matter what school he chooses, he can't go wrong. They're all great schools - especially his top three.

"Him going to Louisville could've been to go chill and have fun. I don't know. They were on his [initial top] list, but you know, he has his top three. They still said, 'Hey, can you come here and stop by.' Stuff like that."

Peterman isn't shy about naming what school she wants her Army-All American son to attend. It's the Florida State Seminoles.

"You better believe it," she said. "They're what I like. I'll be excited no matter what though. Whether it's FSU, like I want it to be, or whether it's somebody else."
