Last week, Louisville’s football staff picked up their tenth verbal commitment in the class of 2013 from an intimidating Georgian named Chandler Bridges. The news is encouraging for two reasons:
- Strong’s staff has assembled a very solid class of big, versatile kids. Although Kyle Bolin and Ryan White are the most glamorous commitments, Strong has shown a remarkable knack for closing with high-profile players near signing day. This year appears no different, as Louisville’s staff has positioned itself well with several elite-echelon players. The lineman-heavy foundation of ten 2013 verbals allows the coaches to focus on their most sought-after remaining targets.
- Someone at UofL seems to have noticed The Big Russbowski, notified the proper parties, and arranged to have a passable Jeff Bridges stand-in recruited.
