Louisville Football is looking for a WR or possibly 2 in this class. One of their top targets is 3 Star WR Demetrius Cannon. You can read a little about him by clicking here. However, there is another WR that Louisville just offered back on June 9th. It appears in that short amount of time, the staff made quite an impression as 3 Star WR O’Mega Blake released his final 3 schools and Louisville is on the list.

Blake is a 6’2 188 lbs WR from Rock Hill, SC. He is ranked as the 86th best WR in the class by 247sports. Along with his top 3 of South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and the Cards, he held offers from Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kansas State, Penn State, and Kentucky, among others.
Blake had 50 receptions for 1019 yards and 14 TDs last season for South Pointe High School. Blake is a receiver that possesses excellent speed and agility. With short throws, he uses his agility to juke, make defenders miss, and get major YAC. On deep balls, he uses his speed to run right past defenders and get behind the defense. He attacks the pass at its highest point and often comes away with the ball when there’s a lot of traffic because of his terrific and strong hands.
With Louisville just having gotten involved in Blake’s recruitment in earnest at the beginning of June, the fact they have made his final 3 now speaks volumes. This is definitely a recruit to watch Louisville fans. It may be hard to overcome the call of his home state school, but with our staff, I wouldn’t be shocked if it happened.
