Louisville football hosted 8 recruits this weekend. Five are commits and three are targets. It is always a big deal when recruits take their official visits, but this one was especially big because it was the first time for Bobby Petrino and his staff to host here at Louisville. So the goal was to keep the commits solid, and try to get the targets to commit or at least take a harder look at the Cards. National Signing Day is Wednesday February 5th.
Here are some of the things that the recruits were tweeting while talking about their visit to Louisville.
Reggie Bonnafon just posted this picture on Instagram. It is all 8 football visitors wearing the black uniforms. Looks pretty sharp! The list of visitors is here.
Coach Bobby Petrino and the staff have hit the recruiting trail hard and have a crucial 3 weeks ahead of them. Over these next 3 weekends before signing day the Cards will try to get as many commits and targets on campus as possible and it starts with the group this weekend:
With the recent decommits of Poona Ford and Chris Nelson, both defensive tackles, Louisville fans are needing to see a defensive tackle on the radar for Bobby Petrino and his staff for this class. Well this weekend they will get a big-time visitor when four-star defensive tackle Daniel Cage visits the Cards.
Cage is from Cincinnati, OH and is listed at 6’3 and 290 lbs. Scout ranks him as the 7th best defensive tackle in the country. He has already visited Illinois, and now has visits to Louisville (Jan.17), Michigan State (Jan. 24), and Missouri (Jan. 31). He also recently got an offer from Notre Dame, so we will see if he visits the Irish as well.
