This morning, 4* defensive tackle Poona Ford decommitted from the Louisville Cardinals. He is from Hilton Head, South Carolina and had been kind of wavering on his committment anyway. So when Charlie Strong took the Texas job, we knew it would be tough to keep Ford here. He will take official visits to Texas, Missouri, and Oregon now.
Later in the afternoon, Chris Nelson, who is also a defensive tackle, decommitted as well. He is from Lakeland, Florida and is rated a 3* on most sites.
Shake-ups happen all the time in recruiting classes when a new coach comes in, so you couldn’t expect to keep everybody. But with the staff that Bobby Petrino is putting together, our recruiting should be just fine.
