If anyone has been tired of all of the back and forth with G.G. Robinson and his recruitment, it has been me. It got to the point where I was just ready for him to sign with Florida or Auburn. I didn’t even have a post ready for him yesterday to say that he had signed; I just didn’t think it would happen.
But now that he is officially a Louisville Cardinal, none of that matters now and we (or I) can move on. He is one of us now. In this article on GwinnettPrepSports.com, it is pretty clear that the Auburn Tigers did just about everything they could to get Robinson to flip his commitment and play his football on the Plains.
The ACC Digital Network had JC Shurburtt on to talk about Louisville’s recruiting class. Shurburtt is the National Recruiting Director for 247 Sports.
In the video, he says that he “definitely sees a replacement” for Lorenzo Mauldin, talks about who can possibly replace DeVante Parker, and talks about Traveon Samuel.
The Louisville Cardinals have signed 25 players in the 2015 class. That includes 8 that were already signed before National Signing Day. The full list is below, along with their star ratings from each of the four major recruiting sites.
Total players signed: 25
I have been saying all along that two guys I have just not been sold on are Sheldrick Redwine and GG Robinson. Read my earlier post about Redwine to see why. For Robinson, yes he did commit last night to Louisville for a second time. But until his National Letter of Intent is signed, I won’t buy it.
So you thought the Sheldrick Redwine recruiting story was over? Think again. From the start, Louisville has seemed like his backup plan. It is pretty well known that he did try to commit to Auburn last week, but they wouldn’t accept it, and then he said he was still with Louisville. So from that time until now, it seemed like the Cards would get him to sign the dotted line on National Signing Day, which is tomorrow by the way.
Not so fast my friends. David Furones, who covers the Miami Hurricanes on a few different platforms, says that this isn’t over yet.
