Just a few quick notes before I head out the door this morning. You may already know all of these things, but maybe not…
*Football practice begins on Thursday for the University of Louisville. They will have a team meeting on Wednesday and then really begin on Thursday.
*There is supposed to be an announcement (I think today) as to if any practices are open to the public. I haven’t heard anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe the first two or three are open.
UPDATE – OPEN PRACTICE TIMES ANNOUNCED. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE SCHEDULE.
The 2014 football season may be over, but the recruiting season never seems to end. With National Signing Day coming up on February 4, the Cards are hosting a lot of big visitors on campus this weekend. Some are already committed to UofL, so the staff will do what they can to solidify those commitments. Some are committed to other schools and some are not yet committed anywhere.
The four recruiting sites used are ESPN, 247 Sports, Rivals, and Scout. As of right now, there will be 18 official visitors. Here is who will be on campus this weekend…
This weekend is shaping up to be very big for the University of Louisville football team. The Cards enter the game against rival Kentucky with an 8-3 record and are playing to improve their Bowl Game stock. The Cats are 5-6 and are playing to become bowl eligible. That makes this game exciting enough.
On top of that, Bobby Petrino and the Cards will be hosting a LOT of recruits on campus for the game. The list is pretty incredible. What makes it more impressive to me is that this is rivalry weekend. There are huge games all over the country, and these kids will be right here in the ‘Ville checking out the Cards. That says a lot.
*The “four recruiting sites” that are referenced are 247 Sports, ESPN, Rivals, and Scout.
The Louisville Cardinals just got a commitment from 3-star offensive guard Chandler Jones. Jones is listed at 6’4 and 310 lbs on 247 Sports. He is from Powder Springs, Georgia.
Jones chose Louisville over Mississippi State and also had offers from Syracuse, Cincinnati, Michigan State, NC State, Purdue, and more.
3 Star DT Chandler Jones (GA) tweeted the above tweet tonight. The 6’4 310lb Jones has been a Louisville lean for awhile and has himself throwing up the “L” in his twitter background. Jones crystal ball on the Louisville 247 site is also 100% Louisville. All signs pointing to the Cards here.
