Louisville football hosted 8 recruits this weekend. Five are commits and three are targets. It is always a big deal when recruits take their official visits, but this one was especially big because it was the first time for Bobby Petrino and his staff to host here at Louisville. So the goal was to keep the commits solid, and try to get the targets to commit or at least take a harder look at the Cards. National Signing Day is Wednesday February 5th.
Here are some of the things that the recruits were tweeting while talking about their visit to Louisville.
Reggie Bonnafon just posted this picture on Instagram. It is all 8 football visitors wearing the black uniforms. Looks pretty sharp! The list of visitors is here.
Coach Bobby Petrino and the Louisville staff have been working around the clock preparing for the upcoming signing day. As we posted yesterday the Cards will have some impressive recruits on campus over the next 3 weeks starting today. (Visitor List 1/17) One of those guys will be 4 Star RB Marlon Mack (FL). Mack had been committed to UCLA before announcing his de commitment earlier this week.
New Louisville RB coach and former Cardinal and Kansas City Chief Kolby Smith established a connection with Mack while he was at WKU and that has continued with the move to Louisville. While Mack is a dynamic RB you may be even more impressed with him at the Safety position. Mack flat out brings the hammer! The position that the Cards want Mack to play isn’t known but what is known is Mack is a flat out athlete and that’s what Bobby likes. Keep a close eye on this one over the weekend

Coach Bobby Petrino and the staff have hit the recruiting trail hard and have a crucial 3 weeks ahead of them. Over these next 3 weekends before signing day the Cards will try to get as many commits and targets on campus as possible and it starts with the group this weekend:
