Louisville Head Coach Scott Satterfield met with the media on Wednesday afternoon to discuss team workouts, recruiting, and much more. Below are the various takeaways from what Satterfield had to say in response to a multitude of questions.
It was no secret that Satterfield wasn’t pleased with the lack of offensive line depth when he took over the program. Two and a half years later, the numbers are finally satisfactory for the coaching staff.
Trevor Reid is expected to see a large role this season, and Satterfield sees him as a possible first-rounder in a couple years.
Luke Kandra ran the fastest 40-yard dash out of all of the offensive linemen, and has “shoulders as big as Satterfield’s desk”.
Although the Miami, Fl. native hasn’t seen many opportunities on the field, Harrell recorded a staggering 4.19 40 time.
In the defensive line room, Gillotte ran the fastest 40-yard dash and has also gained a significant amount of weight since arriving in Louisville. Satterfield and the coaching staff have been impressed and see him as an impact freshman in the fall.
Satterfield revealed that 40-45 players on the team are vaccinated, along with the majority of the staff. Although vaccines are optional, the staff has encouraged the program’s members to receive them.
Satterfield refused to speak specifically about the team’s recent additions due to protocols, but did identify safety as the main position of need that needs to be addressed with the remaining spots.
With the class being smaller than normal, the secondary will be the main focus of the class. The staff looks to bring in 4-5 defensive backs, while looking to add wide receivers, a running back, a quarterback, and defensive line. Satterfield also said that at least one recruit will be on campus every single day of June.
