Signee Breakdown: Jatavious Harris

Photo Courtesy of Jatavious Harris’ Twitter Account (@screamtaaye) Thank you Tennessee for the gift of Jatavious Harris. Coach Petrino may have signed his very own Devante Parker. The UofL receiving corps should be special for years to come with Harris in the fold. The 6’3 184 lbs Harris is tall and athletic. Speed is a…

Signee Breakdown: Nigel Kilby

Photo Courtesy of Nigel Kilby’s Twitter Account (@NigelKilby_82) TEs are very important in Coach Petrino’s offense. He likes athletic, pass catchers.

Signee Breakdown: Adonis Boone

Photo Courtesy of Adonis Boone’s Twitter Account (@Ajb1_) Adonis Boone, as it stands, is the only OL in this class. That could change by the time February rolls around, but Petrino found a brute in the 6’5 285 lbs Boone. As a run blocker, he is devastating. Watching him hit a defender is like watching a…

Signee Breakdown: Robert Hicks III

Photo Courtesy of Robert Hicks’ Twitter Account (@1_JetSet) Robert Hicks III is one of UofL’s highest rated recruits in this class. The LB from Miami powerhouse Central High School is 4 Star Under Armour All-American and is worthy of that ranking. At 6’2 230 lbs, Hicks appears to be physically ready to step in and…

Signee Breakdown: Trenell Troutman

Photo Courtesy of Trenell Troutman’s Twitter Account (@FlyyNell) Trenell Troutman was an excellent edition during this early signing period for UofL. Many Safeties are one dimensional. Either they are ball hawks that are great in coverage or hitters that are great in the box. Troutman is a safety that can do both. UofL may use…

Signee Breakdown: Jordan Travis

Photo Courtesy of Jordan Travis’ Twitter Account (@JTravis10) 3 Star QB Jordan Travis signed his Letter of Intent to play football at UofL. UofL got a player that appears to be a steal. The 6’2 185 lbs Travis has moves like Lamar Jackson as a runner, but he’s a much more polished passer. Imagine combining…

Signee Breakdown: Thurman Geathers

Photo Courtesy of Thurman Geathers’ Twitter Account (@TJTherm) UofL signed another DL for this class.

Signee Breakdown: Dejmi Dumervil Jean

Photo Courtesy of Dejmi Dumervil Jean’s Twitter Account (@kingdez1k) UofL signed a legacy recruit in Dejmi “Dez” Dumervil Jean. He’s the nephew of UofL legend “Kool” Elvis Dumervil. Unlike his Uncle, who used superior speed and pass rush moves, Dez is a giant who uses brutal power. At 6’5 367 lbs, Dumervil Jean is a…
