One of the pros of Louisville hiring Jeff Brohm was the vast improvement of local recruiting; since being hired, the Cardinals’ head coach has landed commitments form two in-state players (Micah Carter and Saadiq Clements). That trend seems to be gaining steam, especially with former Louisville commit Jeremiah Collins including the Cards in his final list cut along with Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt, and Middle Tennessee State. The 2023 prospect joining the program would make sense for a team looking to relieve depth issues in the secondary.

Collins originally committed to Louisville back on January 30th, before backing off of his pledge on June 29th. The former Louisville Male standout moved to Tennessee prior to his senior season and joined Oakland High School. The 6-foot-2 defensive back is currently ranked as the 614th-best prospect in the nation (247Sports Composite). One thing to note: along with having offers from Louisville, Kentucky, and others; Collins held an offer from Purdue, with new Cardinals’ coach Chris Barclay being his primary recruiter.
