Photo Courtesy of Andrew Ivins/247sports.com  Miami made a late push to try to steal Jared Goldwire from UofL. Fortunately, UofL was able to get him signed. Goldwire could be a great player for UofL. Coming out of high school, Goldwire was a DE.  After going JUCO, he has grown into an interior DT. He’s got…

Signee Breakdown: Adonis Boone

Photo Courtesy of Adonis Boone’s Twitter Account (@Ajb1_) Adonis Boone, as it stands, is the only OL in this class. That could change by the time February rolls around, but Petrino found a brute in the 6’5 285 lbs Boone. As a run blocker, he is devastating. Watching him hit a defender is like watching a…

Signee Breakdown: Robert Hicks III

Photo Courtesy of Robert Hicks’ Twitter Account (@1_JetSet) Robert Hicks III is one of UofL’s highest rated recruits in this class. The LB from Miami powerhouse Central High School is 4 Star Under Armour All-American and is worthy of that ranking. At 6’2 230 lbs, Hicks appears to be physically ready to step in and…

Signee Breakdown: Trenell Troutman

Photo Courtesy of Trenell Troutman’s Twitter Account (@FlyyNell) Trenell Troutman was an excellent edition during this early signing period for UofL. Many Safeties are one dimensional. Either they are ball hawks that are great in coverage or hitters that are great in the box. Troutman is a safety that can do both. UofL may use…

Signee Breakdown: Jordan Travis

Photo Courtesy of Jordan Travis’ Twitter Account (@JTravis10) 3 Star QB Jordan Travis signed his Letter of Intent to play football at UofL. UofL got a player that appears to be a steal. The 6’2 185 lbs Travis has moves like Lamar Jackson as a runner, but he’s a much more polished passer. Imagine combining…

Signee Breakdown: Thurman Geathers

Photo Courtesy of Thurman Geathers’ Twitter Account (@TJTherm) UofL signed another DL for this class. Unlike the others who are versatile and can line up inside or outside, Thurman Geathers is definitely a DE, but could possibly be an OLB Geathers is a tall, lanky 6’3 218 lbs and primarily plays in a 3 point stance….

Signee Breakdown: Dejmi Dumervil Jean

Photo Courtesy of Dejmi Dumervil Jean’s Twitter Account (@kingdez1k) UofL signed a legacy recruit in Dejmi “Dez” Dumervil Jean. He’s the nephew of UofL legend “Kool” Elvis Dumervil. Unlike his Uncle, who used superior speed and pass rush moves, Dez is a giant who uses brutal power. At 6’5 367 lbs, Dumervil Jean is a…

Signee Breakdown: Yasir Abdullah

Photo Courtesy of Yasir Abdullah’s Twitter Account (@AbYasiir) Louisville as a whole has been looking to add more speed. The signing of Yasir Abdullah goes a long way in accomplishing that goal. Yasir played high school football as Carol City in Miami, Florida. Yasir, mostly played OLB but isn’t afraid of putting his hands on…

Signee Breakdown: Telly Plummer

Photo Courtesy of Telly Plummer’s Twitter Account (@tempp16) UofL signed CB Telly Plummer out of GA. With the departures that the secondary will have, Petrino loaded up on DBs. Plummer may be the most underrated player in the class. At 6′ 185, his size is excellent for the position. Plummer is a cover corner. From…

Signee Breakdown: Marcus Riley

Photo Courtesy of Marcus Riley’s Twitter Account (@PrimeeTimee2) Marcus Riley is an interesting recruit in this class for Coach Petrino. They list him as an ATH and with good reason. After watching his film, I saw him play 4 different positions; WR, QB, Safety, and CB. It’s obvious why UofL wanted him; they coveted his…

Signee Breakdown: Chandler Jones

Photo Courtesy of Chandler Jones’ Twitter Account (@1OfficialCJ)  Bobby Petrino needed secondary help in this class, especially with the loss of CB Trumaine Washington and the likely loss of Jaire Alexander. He couldn’t have done any better than getting Under Armour All-American Chandler Jones. The 5’10 173 lbs CB is everything you could want in…

Signee Breakdown: Mike Boykin

Photo Courtesy of Mike Boykin’s Twitter Account (@1_goat46) UofL didn’t sign a defensive lineman in last year’s class. They set out to rectify that issue in this class and it appears they did just that. UofL fans remember Mike Boykin being a member of the 2016 class, but he was forced to go JUCO. Well,…

Signee Breakdown: Jarrett Jackson

Photo Courtesy of Jarrett Jackson’s Twitter Account (@Jsavagee_5) South Carolina came in late and tried to flip Jarrett Jackson from UofL. Jackson, a DE, chose to stick with the Cards and signed his Letter of Intent. I’m sure Bobby Petrino, LD Scott, and Peter Sirmon are extremely happy he did. Jackson is ideal size for…
