Football visitors list for 1-24-14

Bobby Petrino 2

Coach Petrino and his staff are hosting another group of recruits this weekend. These “official visit” weekends are huge for the staff since the coaching change and because National Signing Day is just a couple of weeks away. They have to lock down the guys who were committed to the previous staff as well as impress the targets. Here is the list of visitors this weekend for the Cards.

2014 Commits

Desean Blair Desean Blair– 4* wide receiver from Jacksonville, FL.   6’4   185 lbs

*According to our own post here, Blair said that Nebraska was his favorite after visiting them last weekend. However, after Coach Petrino visited his school this week, the Cards pulled even, making this weekend a big one for the Cards with Blair. 

Michael Johnson Michael Johnson– 4* safety from Hialeah, FL.   6’2   190 lbs

Desean Blair has good visit from Bobby Petrino

Desean Blair

We posted an update on wide receiver Desean Blair last night, but as you would expect, there was more news today. Bobby Petrino visited Blair at his high school (Sandalwood) in Jacksonville, Florida. “We talked about school, academics, family, the offense, the defense, his history with good programs, all of that,” Blair said. “I like him a lot. Hes’s a good person and my grandpa and dad like him.”

A wide receiver surely would like Petrino’s offense right? Blair said “He (Petrino) said they get it around a lot. It’s kind of pro style.”

After this past weekend’s visit to Nebraska, Blair said that they (Nebraska) were his favorite. After today’s visit from Coach Petrino, there is no favorite, making this weekend’s visit to Louisville huge. When asked what he is most looking forward to from his visit to Louisville, Blair said “If I feel like I fit in and get along with the staff.”

He also has one more visit after Louisville, and that will be to Missouri on January 31. They have always been in the picture with him a little bit, but started to contact him again when Charlie Strong left.

ESPN lists Blair as a 4-star wide receiver.

Desean Blair update: This weekend’s visit will decide

Desean Blair

Three-star wide receiver commit Desean Blair (Jacksonville, FL) visited Nebraska this past weekend, and liked what he saw. What stuck out the most? “The facilities, the academics and the staff and players,” Blair said. He is still committed to Louisville and will visit the Cards this coming weekend (Jan. 24).

He has said that this weekend’s visit to Louisville will determine where he ends up. So can the Cards show Blair enough to hang on to him? Or did Nebraska do enough to take him away? This weekend should tell us a lot, and we will definitely keep you posted on this.

Blair is listed at 6’4 and 180 lbs and will be a great addition wherever he ends up. At 6’4, he could step in and fill the void that will be left by DeVante Parker.

Louisville commits meeting up at the bowl game


One of the reasons that this game is so big for Louisville is the location. To have a bowl game in Florida is awesome when you recruit that state so much. You can have recruits come watch your team in person without having to bring them up for an official visit. So it is like a bonus visit for those guys. Louisville will have a few commits from the class of 2014 in attendance, as well as a former commit who flipped to Miami.
