Year in and year out, some of the best high school football players in the country come from the state of Florida. So when you are selected for an All-Star game in that state, that says a lot about the kind of talent you have. The Louisville Cardinals have 3 players committed for the class of 2014 that will play in the Nike Miami-Dade vs Broward football All-Star game.
Wide receiver George Rushing (Cardinal Gibbons High School) and defensive end Rashawn Shaw (Fort Pierce Central High School) will play on Team Florida, and safety Michael Johnson (Champagnat Catholic of Hialeah) will play on the Miami-Dade team. Rushing said that “I feel honored. I can’t wait to play in the game…I’m honored to played with two of my future teammates. It should be fun and competitive.”
The game will be played in Miramar, FL on December 28.
Currently the Cards have 14 verbal commits for the class of 2014. Of those 14 players, 8 are from the state of Florida. Coach Strong and staff continue to be a big time presence in the sunshine state when it comes to recruiting. Here is the list of commits so far, as well as their ranking on certain sites. Go Cards!

Charlie Strong and company landed their 2nd commitment of the 2014 class today when 6’3 Safety Michael Johnson said he would be a Cardinal. Johnson was a teammate of current Louisville signee Chucky Williams. Johnson recently measured in at 6’3 190 lbs and ran a 4.49 40, Charlie continues to bring in the large DB’s that will be needed in the ACC. Johnson forced seven fumbles in his JR year so I think we can expect a big physical Safety here. Johnson had offers from WVU and Nebraska along with others. On a side note Johnson recently told Deep South Recruiting that Miami was his dream school and now he’s a Card, Think on that Canes fans.
