Bobby Petrino just picked up a commitment from Paul Harris, a 6’4 wide receiver who is a former Tennessee Volunteer. Harris now plays at Iowa Western Community College. He is originally from Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
Coming out of high school, Harris was a 4-star prospect on Rivals. He is currently a 3-star on 247 Sports. The Cards will lose some big experience at wide receiver after this season, so bringing in the 6’4 Harris is a great thing for Petrino.
The big win on Monday night over Miami is already starting to pay off on the recruiting trail. Trey Smith, a 6’1 210 lb athlete, committed to the Cards. He is from Madison, Mississippi and is the son of former NFL wide receiver Jimmy Smith, who played for Bobby Petrino with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Smith also has offers from Mississippi State and Memphis. He is the 16th verbal commit for Louisville in the 2015 class. In his first high school game this season, Smith started at quarterback, but seemed to be more of the running QB. He rushed for 108 yards on 26 carries while throwing for 77 yards.
Bobby Petrino and his staff are certainly picking things up when it comes to recruiting. He just landed another verbal commit, the 14th of the class and the second one on Thursday night (G.G.Robinson committed earlier). This one is from Jaylen Smith, a 6’3 wide receiver out of Pascagoula, Mississippi. Smith is rated as a 3-star player on 247 Sports, ESPN, and Scout. Rivals has him as a 2-star player.
Smith recently named his final 6 schools, and ultimately chose the Cards over Nebraska, Cincinnati, Arizona State, Temple, and South Alabama.
The Louisville Cardinals just picked up a pretty big commitment for the class of 2015. Khane Pass, a safety from Columbus, Georgia has just become the 11th member of Bobby Petrino’s 2015 recruiting class. Pass is a 3-star prospect on all four major recruiting sites. He is listed at 6’0 and 195 lbs. Rivals ranks him as the 34th best safety in the country.
Pass also holds offers from Clemson, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Nebraska, North Carolina, N.C. State, Purdue, and more.
Myles Washington, a running back from New Orleans (John Curtis High School) visited UofL on Tuesday and came away very impressed. “The visit was great,” Washington told CSZ. “They (Louisville) are definitely at the top.” Although Washington is only rated as a 2-star player, that is thought to be a little misleading because he plays two positions. In high school, he plays running back and quarterback. If he played only running back, he may be considered a 3-star.
Louisville picked up their 10th commitment for the 2015 class on Monday afternoon. Tim Bonner, an outside linebacker/defensive end from Demopolis, Alabama chose the Cards over Mississippi State and Kentucky. He is listed at 6’5 and 215 lbs.
He will likely play both of those positions at UofL. He can play outside linebacker in the 3-4, and play on the line in the 4-3. He could be similar to what Lorenzo Mauldin will do this season.
Tevon Coney is a 4-star linebacker from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and has offers from nearly every big-time school in the country. On Monday afternoon, he tweeted out that he will also be considering the Louisville Cardinals. 247 Sports ranks him as the 11th best inside linebacker in the country. Rivals rates him as the 9th best inside linebacker.
Along with an offer from the Cards, Coney also has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Georgia, Clemson, Michigan State, and many more.
Will Gragg is rated as a 4-star Tight End on all four major recruiting sites (247 Sports, Rivals, Scout, ESPN). On Monday, he tweeted out his top 6, which he said in no order are: LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Alabama, Texas, and Louisville. 247 Sports rates him as the 3rd best tight end in the country. Scout has him 5th, ESPN 7th, and Rivals 9th. So he is a consensus top 10 player at his position according to those sites.
