A little over an hour ago, Mike Hughes of insidetheville.com broke a story detailing Charlie Strong’s newest commitment for 2012 – 3-star Georgia QB, Will Gardner. Gardner chose Louisville over Alabama and Mississippi State after hearing that he was the Cards’ top priority at the QB position.

Also, perhaps this whole situation sheds some light on Tyler Gabbert’s decision to leave Louisville this past weekend. Sources informed Louisville Sports Live on July 9th that the staff was close to securing a big commitment, and perhaps Gabbert wasn’t willing to compete with yet another strong contemporary at the same position.
