Bobby Petrino likes quarterbacks. I believe we already knew that. He just got another one as JUCO QB Pat Thomas has sent in his letter of intent to Louisville and he will enroll on May 16. He is listed 6’4 and 185 lbs and is a dual-threat quarterback. He will have 3 years of eligibility at UofL.
Thomas was signed at UAB when Garrick McGee (UofL offensive coordinator) was the head coach there. When McGee came to Louisville, Thomas was released from his letter of intent.
In 2013 at Georgia Military College, Thomas threw for 1,695 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also rushed for 199 yards and 2 touchdowns.
It looks like Bobby Petrino and his staff will be hosting a pretty important visitor on Wednesday. According to Kipp Adams of 247 Sports, running back Jovon Robinson will be visiting the Cards. He is rated as the top JUCO player in the country by 247sports. He is listed at 6’0 and 220 pounds.
Robinson is from Memphis, Tennessee and actually was a member of Auburn’s football team in 2012 for a short time. Before the season started, he was declared ineligible because of an NCAA investigation over a grade change on his high school transcript.
He was named the NJCAA Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 after he rushed for 2,387 yards and 34 touchdowns for Georgia Military College.
