Like we said earlier the Cards may have lost on the field against FSU but they are winning on the recruiting trail. Today Petrino has landed FOUR commitments (3 2015/1 2016). Here is a look at the new Cardinals:
3 star LB/S
Chose Louisville over: Miami, Nc State, Missouri, UK
Rundown: Smith is rated as a “High” 3 star player that will get his 4th star in a matter of time. Smith has incredible upside and will be a starter down the road for the Cards.
#12 JUCO OL
Chose Louisville over: Georgia, Missouri, and Cincinnati
Rundown: Of all the four Hunter will make the quickest impact. Hunter will walk into Louisville and compete for a starting job on next season’s offensive line.
#4 JUCO RB
Chose Cards over: Arizona, Cal, Iowa St, and Wisconsin
Rundown: Cook is a powerful down hill runner that could see some time at running back and full back for the Cards.
4 Star Wide Reciever
Rundown: Fitzpatrick is an excellent route runner that has began drawing interest from Ohio St, ND, Michigan, and Michigan St. The 4 star receiver will fit right into Petrino’s system.
