Louisville Football officially added a grad transfer OL today. Cam DeGeorge, a 6’4 290 lbs OG is transferring from UConn and will finish his career as a Cardinal.
DeGeorge, who is originally from MA, was a 3 year starter at OG for UConn. He helped a rushing attack that produced two 1000 yard rushers in 2018 according to uconnhuskies.com. That bodes very well for him to be an impact lineman at UofL where the rushing attack is a focal point of Coach Scott Satterfield’s scheme.
The experience that DeGeorge brings to the Cards will help immensely. He adds proven depth to the offensive line that lost a few highly experienced players. With the way Coach Satterfield likes to rotate linemen during games to keep guys fresh, having a player like Cam DeGeorge that is a quality talent to plug in is essential.
