In 2019, when Coach Satterfield and staff came to the University of Louisville they offered the son of an NFL great. The player was Shedeur Sanders, son of Deion “Primetime” Sanders. Shedeur is a 6’2 198 lbs QB from Cedar Hills, Texas. He plays for Trinity Christian School.
Sanders is a composite 4 Star QB according to 247sports and has offers from many big time programs including Alabama, LSU, Florida State, and Florida, among many other offers. Sanders did an interview with 247sports Michael McCammon and gave an update on his recruitment.

He discussed how he’s building a relationship with the Cardinal coaching staff and what he is really looking for in a school, among other things. I think one of the key quotes from the article is this one:
This quote shows two things: Sanders has a good head on his shoulders and Louisville fits the profile of a program he would be interested in.
Sanders is a dual-threat QB that figures to be a great fit for what Coach Satterfield likes to run offensively. His highlights show he can run really well, but he’s a pass first QB. Accuracy is a strength of his, as he drops dimes all over the field. His touch and accuracy on his deep ball are very good. As we saw this past season, Coach Satterfield enjoys throwing the big play deep balls to make defenses pay for sucking up to the line of scrimmage to stop the run. Sanders can hit deep balls over the middle and down the sideline with precision.
In the pocket, he stands tall and shows good footwork. He displays some good pocket awareness and knows how to move in the pocket under pressure. When he is on the move, Sanders keeps his eyes upfield looking for open receivers. If he can’t find one, he is perfectly capable of making defenders miss and running the ball. He can be a big play guy with his arm and legs.
I can’t help, but feel if Sanders becomes a Card and learns under Frank Ponce he could really grow into an All-ACC performer. Shedeur Sanders is definitely a player Louisville fans should keep their eyes on. He could definitely be the next in line of great UofL QBs.
Make sure you read Michael McCammon’s article. It’s chalk full of information on this high level recruit and gives you a good idea of where he is in his recruitment.
