Coach Petrino and his staff are hosting another group of recruits this weekend. These “official visit” weekends are huge for the staff since the coaching change and because National Signing Day is just a couple of weeks away. They have to lock down the guys who were committed to the previous staff as well as impress the targets. Here is the list of visitors this weekend for the Cards.
Desean Blair– 4* wide receiver from Jacksonville, FL. 6’4 185 lbs
*According to our own post here, Blair said that Nebraska was his favorite after visiting them last weekend. However, after Coach Petrino visited his school this week, the Cards pulled even, making this weekend a big one for the Cards with Blair.
Michael Johnson– 4* safety from Hialeah, FL. 6’2 190 lbs
Isaac Stewart– 3* linebacker from Matthews, NC. 6’1 230 lbs
Zykiesis Cannon– 3* defensive back from Greenville, SC. 5’11 181 lbs
Danny Burns– 3* offensive tackle from Fairfield, OH. 6’7 318 lbs
Shaq Jones– 3* cornerback from Merritt Island, FL. 6’1 170 lbs
*Jones was the first commit for Bobby Petrino at Louisville in this class.
George Rushing– 3* wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale, FL. 6’0 182 lbs
*Rushing is a former Louisville commit. He backed off when Bobby Petrino was hired, but since meeting Coach Petrino in person, his interest is back. Don’t be surprised at all if Rushing ends up at Louisville when it’s all said and done.
Kelby Johnson– JUCO offensive tackle from Hyattsville, MD. 6’8 315 lbs
Grant Harris– 3* defensive end from Clinton, MS. 6’5 260 lbs
Trumaine Washington– 3* cornerback from Miami, FL. 5’9 175 lbs
And if this picture is any indication of how all the visits start out, then I am really jealous. (Pic by Marlon Mack last weekend)
