Michael Dyer to be a Louisville Cardinal?

For a while, the 2011 BCS Championship MVP Michael Dyer still had some question marks about what school he’d be transferring.  As the days go by, it appears to be more and more evident that Dyer will select the Louisville Cardinals as his next football destination.

After visiting Louisville last week and having a good visit, Dyer received a seal of approval from Bridgewater.  In that same article from Jonathan Lintner, more news revealing that he more than likely will pick Louisville has been revealed:

An official with U of L’s registrar office confirmed that the university added Dyer to its system on Thursday, which is often an indication a prospective student plans to apply for enrollment. Dyer has until Aug. 26 to register for the fall semester if he intends to enroll at U of L, the official said.

Even a few days ago, Dyer’s wikipedia page had been edited saying that he had selected Louisville.  It’s obviously not indicative of his selection at all and has been changed back, but it’s funny that someone went to enough lengths to do that.

Of all of the prospective signs that point to Dyer’s selection, the addition to the registrar seems to be the most powerful of all, signaling that he’s more than likely going to pick Louisville.  There’s been no official news just yet, but expect the decision to be announced in the coming days.

Dyer has some previous issues that should be concerning to any team, i.e. his release from both Auburn and Arkansas State, but he is without a doubt a good football talent and would be a very welcome addition to a Louisville team that is very pass-oriented.  And if anyone is definitely able to make sure that Dyer stays in line, I’d put my money on Charlie Strong and the Louisville coaching staff.  He’s said he’s changed though, so perhaps a Louisville selection could provide a clean slate on which Dyer can perform very well.
