Geron Christian, a 6’4″, 305 lb OL from Ocala, Florida, has committed to the Cards. Christian, a former Miami Hurricanes commit, is the younger brother of Louisville senior tight end Gerald Christian. The Cards will lose three starters on the offensive line after the season and need major help in the trenches. Landing Christian is a major pick up for U of L. In addition to Miami (FL), Christian also had offers from Mississippi State and Arkansas, and was receiving interest from ACC foe Florida State.
Christian is the second commitment in the last few days for coach Bobby Petrino and staff. The Cards also landed Jaire Alexander two days ago. With the commitment, Louisville’s class is ranked 30th in the nation and sixth best in the ACC.
