For the second time this week, UofL Football and Coach Bobby Petrino got a commitment from a 2019 in-state recruit. 3 Star ATH Anthony Adkins, from Larue County High School in Hodgenville, gave his pledge to UofL.

Adkins chose UofL over offers from Army, WKU, and Bowling Green. I expect more offers will likely roll in for him, so it is good UofL was able to lock him in before other schools come a calling.

UofL Football Is Trying To Win The State In 2019: Aidan Robbins Commitment May Set The Victory In Motion

IMG_20180613_131337

Just about every coach in the NCAA wants to take care of home first (from basketball to soccer). They all speak about how important it is to win the recruiting battle and keep the good and special players home. The same goes for Louisville’s Bobby Petrino, Pete Nochta, Ryan Beard, and the rest of the coaching staff.

This year is no different; especially with all the talented young men coming from the state just within the 2019 class. This class arguably has the talent to rival any class to come before it: the 2003 class (Michael Bush), 2004 class (Brian Brohm and Mario Urrutia) and the 2013 class (James Quick, Kyle Bolin and Jason Hatcher).

His Power and Strength

Aidan is as powerful a RB as you will find anywhere in the country. He’s a professional tackle breaker; a player you will see collect a ton of yards after contact. He’s a throw back to the types of RBs Bobby Petrino used to bring in. Robbins body and frame appear ready for the rigors of the ACC. I wouldn’t doubt he could get playing time as a freshman depending on what UofL’s depth looks like at RB.

3 Star DE/OLB Shawnkel Knight-Goff out of Doss High School here in Louisville is a player UofL appears to be prioritizing in recruiting. He is a fast, powerful, highly versatile player. The kind of player UofL covets as well as other schools.

Knight-Goff is 6’4 210 lbs and runs an impressive 4.48 40 yard dash. Besides UofL and UK, IU, Purdue, Cincinnati, and WKU are among the other 9 schools to offer him. Mike Summers and LD Scott are currently UofL’s primary recruiters per 247sports.com.

Back on May 19, Knight-Goff committed to UofL’s arch rival UK. It seemed like UofL had lost one of the city’s best players to its biggest enemy. However, on May 31, Knight-Goff backed out of his commitment to UK. (Editor’s Note: Thank Goodness!)
