This weekend is shaping up to be very big for the University of Louisville football team. The Cards enter the game against rival Kentucky with an 8-3 record and are playing to improve their Bowl Game stock. The Cats are 5-6 and are playing to become bowl eligible. That makes this game exciting enough.
On top of that, Bobby Petrino and the Cards will be hosting a LOT of recruits on campus for the game. The list is pretty incredible. What makes it more impressive to me is that this is rivalry weekend. There are huge games all over the country, and these kids will be right here in the ‘Ville checking out the Cards. That says a lot.
*The “four recruiting sites” that are referenced are 247 Sports, ESPN, Rivals, and Scout.
The Cards picked up their 8th commitment for the 2015 class today when Matt Colburn gave his pledge. The 3-star running back (on Rivals) is from Irmo, South Carolina and is 5’8 and 186 lbs. He attended camp at Louisville in early June and got an offer after that.
He is the second running back commit in the class, joining James Allen.
