WDRB’s Eric Crawford has confirmed that sophomore forward Akoy Agau will transfer from the University of Louisville.
Bobby Petrino has just landed another commitment from a junior college player. This one is from running back Jeremy Smith, who plays for Fresno City College in California. Smith is a 3-star player on 247 Sports and they also rank him as the 6th best junior college running back in the country.
If you haven’t seen it by now, here is video of Montrezl Harrell in the locker room after the UNC Wilmington game. Trez pretty much lays it all out there and says that the team was not prepared to play and guys were not taking things seriously for this game. He said that there is no time for egos and that when you step onto the court, leave all of your off the court problems somewhere else.
An ugly win is better than any kind of loss. Go Cards!
Another one of this weekend’s visitors has committed to the Louisville Cardinals. This time it is Junior College defensive end Drew Bailey. He is from Atlanta, Georgia and plays for Pearl River Community College in Mississippi.
According to Mike Hughes of InsideTheVille.com, Louisville has landed a commitment from JUCO offensive lineman Justin Sandifer. He was one of the visitors that UofL hosted this weekend. Junior College players can sign with teams this coming Wednesday, and that is what Sandifer intends to do. So that should mean he and fellow JUCO offensive lineman Khalil Hunter will be on campus for spring ball.
On Sunday evening, the 4th ranked Louisville Cardinals (8-0) will return to action in the 13th Annual Billy Minardi Classic, which honors Rick Pitino’s late brother-in-law who died in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. This year the Cards will face UNC Wilmington (3-2), who are coached by former UofL assistant Kevin Keatts. He was with UofL for 3 seasons.
Louisville enters the game as heavy favorites, I believe by around 28 points or so. But in just five games this season, the Seahawks of UNC Wilmington have scored over 100 points twice already. They beat VMI 110-93 and St. Andrews 105-47. Their last game was on December 3, so they have had 11 days to prepare for this game.
For the third weekend in a row, Bobby Petrino and his staff are hosting some impressive recruits on campus. There aren’t as many this weekend when it comes to quantity, but the quality sure is there. Let’s take a look at who will be in town this weekend.
*Like always, the “four recruiting sites” are Rivals, Scout, 247, and ESPN*

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville football team will conduct a special autograph session on Wednesday, December 17 from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in the Trager Indoor Practice Facility.
Anyone interested in attending the session can donate a toy that will benefit the Salvation Army, and be given to needy families during the Christmas holiday.
Fans are asked to limit items to be signed to two per person because of the long lines expected for autographs.
Bobby Petrino did a short interview with the ACC Digital Network while at the Belk Bowl Press Conference on Wednesday. One thing that he was asked about was who would be lining up under center for the Cards. He says that Will Gardner will not be available, which we already knew. He then says that Reggie Bonnafon should be ready to go.
You love the picture, don’t deny it…
Well that certainly was an entertaining game on a late Tuesday night. Indiana shot lights out for a half, but couldn’t keep up as the Cards hit them with their signature “boom” in the second half and pulled away with a 20 point victory. The 4th ranked Cardinals moved to 8-0 on the season and Indiana fell to 7-2.
The trio of Montrezl Harrell, Chris Jones, and Terry Rozier were phenomenal. They combined for 71 points, only being outscored by 3 by the whole Indiana team. Here are some of my quick reactions from right after the game…
Ke’Shawn Vaughn is a 4-star (Rivals and 247 Sports) running back from Nashville, Tennessee and was leaning towards the hometown school, Vanderbilt, for quite a while. However, he just tweeted his final 3.

The following was posted on Rivals.com on Monday night and was tweeted out by Andrew Bone, who covers the state of Alabama for Rivals. Apparently, the Cards are parting ways with one of their early commitments in the 2015 class, offensive lineman Troy Thingstad.
