Had Montrezl Harrell not gone to the University of Louisville or another school to play college basketball, the power forward guesses he'd be on a football team somewhere instead.

Even though Harrell is a projected lottery pick in next year's NBA draft having returned to U of L for his junior season, well, football coach Bobby Petrino should take a listen to what Harrell had to say in a summer catchup interview posted to the Cardinals' YouTube page this week.

"If coach Petrino needed me to play any possession in football, I'd be ready to play one possession of defense a game," Harrell said after noting he'd be "a football junkie."

Harrell, listed at 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds on last season's roster, would measure up as the tallest player on the football team.
