Louisville is trying to reset its football program under new head coach Jeff Brohm. He has a big weekend ahead of him as he will be trying to pry away another one of LSU’s major CB commitments and securing two of the Cardinals’ most-important recruits. Here’s who’s coming in, per Rivals.
Long Beach Poly (Calif.) CB Daylen Austin
Austin (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) committed to LSU back in May, but Louisville is still considered a contender to get him. He is ranked No. 12 among cornerbacks in this class and No. 9 overall in California. If they can flip him, Austin would be the third corner in this recruiting cycle for the Cardinals.
St. John Bosco (Calif.) QB Pierce Clarkson
The starting QB for the best high school team in the country, Clarkson (6-foot-0, 190 pounds) came on board for Louisville nearly a year ago, but a lot has changed since then. Brohm may have to convince Clarkson he’s still their quarterback of the future, as Clarkson has offers from 23 other schools waiting.
South Paulding (Ga.) G Madden Sanker
Sanker (6-foot-4, 305 pounds) also committed to Louisville several months ago, but Auburn, Mississippi State and Cincinnati have reportedly been trying to flip him.. Sanker is ranked No. 8 among interior offensive linemen in his class and No. 12 overall in the state of Georgia.
Louisville’s 2023 class has 14 hard commits and ranks No. 26 in the country.
