(Photo – TC Palm Post) Coach Petrino picked up another verbal commitment this morning as 3-star LB Sharieff Rhaheed pledged to Louisville.  The Fort Pierce, FL product’s commitment is the 19th in the 2014 class for Louisville.  The one-time LSU commit Rhaheed was a major focus of Strong’s staff, but Petrino and Co. kept the full court press on him and sealed the deal.  The athletic and hard-hitting LB picked UofL over Arkansas, Michigan State, and Missouri.  His offer sheet is extremely impressive and includes Alabama,...Continue reading »

(Photo – WDRB.com) Though the NFL draft doesn’t start until May 8th of this year, that hasn’t stopped the various sports websites and publications from pumping out mock drafts at a high clip. It’s no secret that former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater is a coveted prospect and will likely be selected somewhere in the top-10. But his teammate and fellow early entrant, Calvin Pryor, is also starting to gain some serious momentum and garner the respect he deserves. In USA Today’s latest set of draft predictions, they...Continue reading »

(Photo – Atlanta Journal Constitution) Henry Famurewa is a big time prospect that has been committed to the University of Louisville football program since early June of 2013. The 6-foot-2, 231 pound dynamo has a motor that never stops and looks to be a huge get for the Cards at the defensive end position. Louisville fans have been on an emotional roller coaster in the last couple of weeks with the Charlie Strong to Texas fiasco and the recent decommitments of highly sought after recruits  George Rushing, Poona Ford and Chris Nelson....Continue reading »

  Photo — 247 Sports Madison, Mississippi offensive lineman Jimmy Terry has committed to Louisville. Terry was previously committed to Georgia Southern and coach Bobby Petrino made him a priority after taking over as the Louisville football coach. While Terry had only two offers — Louisville and Georgia Southern — he is a massive offensive lineman at 6-4, 350 lbs. Terry, who plays his high school football at Madison Central, could be a huge addition for Louisville’s offensive line. Terry is the 19th commitment...Continue reading »

Photo – tcpalm.com As signing day approaches, we are reminded that there always seems to be a surprise commitment.  A guy who is a termed a ‘sleeper’ or a ‘diamond in the rough’ will always make it into the class of commitments.  The 2014 definition of a sleeper is WR Javonte Bagley.  The 6’3, 180 lb. prospect from Vero Beach, FL wasn’t mentioned at all as a UofL target until he committed yesterday.  Bagley committed to Bowling Green in January and held an offer of UK, but once Petrino and Co....Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today) Following a week that included a rather lackluster win over a terrible UCF team and a narrow loss to a quality Cincinnati club, Louisville has dropped in both sets of top-25 rankings this afternoon. In the Associated Press poll, the Cards fell from 12th to 14th and in the latest USA Today coach’s installment, UofL dipped from 7th to 10th. All things considered, it could be a lot worse.     VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (2 votes cast)...

(Photo – 247 Sports) As Bobby Petrino and his staff gear up for National Signing Day on Wednesday, there continues to be tons of peaks and valleys on the recruiting front.

They also received a re-commitment from Charlie Strong hold-over, OL Lukayus McNeil (Indianapolis, IN). But this morning, some not-so-positive...Continue reading »

(Photo – Getty Images) Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino was a guest on the local WDRB in the Morning talk show and navigated through a few different subjects including his new coaching staff, the current roster, but mostly, recruiting was the hot topic of choice. Because, ya know, Candyce Clifft (God love her) brings the heat when discussing the college decisions of 18-year old kids. Anyway, here’s the video and a quick link to the interview transcript.

Photo – SI.com It all began last night with 4-star OL Lukayus McNeil re-committing to UofL before the Cards tipped off against UCF.  The 6’7, 272 lb. mammoth lineman chose UofL over Oklahoma and Indiana.  Late Sunday morning came news of two more commitments, 3-star WR/TE Charles Standberry from Montgomery, AL and 3-star DB Trumaine Washington from Miami.  Standbury was committed to Ole Miss and had offers from Boise State and Mississippi State while Washington chose UofL over Syracuse.  Washington visited the Louisville campus...Continue reading »

Photo – @ULFlyingCard *Louisville did what they’ve done all year; beat a team that isn’t ranked to improve to 18-4 overall and 7-2 in the league. *UofL jumped out to 14-2 advantage early, but eased up towards the end of the first half as UCF closed to deficit to six at 26-20. *Russ Smith led UofL with 27 points on 9-14 shooting from the floor.  He was benched last in the first half after a few ‘russdiculous’ turnovers. *Luke added 16 points and dished out 5 assists.  Hancock has 11 assists in the last two games. *’Trez...Continue reading »

Lukayus McNeil, a 4-star offensive tackle from Decatur Central High School, recommitted to the U of L football program tonight during his official visit to the school. McNeil, a 6-foot-7, 272 lb prospect from Indianapolis, Indiana, is one of 12 official visitors on campus and was previously committed to U of L before the coaching change. When coach Bobby Petrino took over after Charlie Strong left for Texas, he immediately went to work on the recruiting trail and the hard work by the staff has certainly paid off. Getting McNeil back in the...Continue reading »
