Bobby Petrino landed one of the top players in the class of 2017 when DB Brian Edwards (FL) picked the Cards. Now look I know what you are saying, “2017…really?” but this could end up being a big time get for Louisville. The 6’4 180 lb CB (yes 6’4 180 lb cb!) already holds offers from the likes of Florida State, Miami, and USC. The Cards will have a lot of work to do to hold on to Edwards but if they do look for him to be a 5 star player when the initial 2017 rankings come out. Follow Brian Edwards on twitter @_talljitt
