He is listed as 6’4″, 290 lbs. and plays for Westover High in Albany, Georgia. He has offers from all the big schools, Florida State, Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Florida and even Kentucky.
He has been recruited by Georgia for a while, Louisville’s new DC Todd Grantham probably has a decent relationship with him.
You have to like the Petrino and company are going after top caliber guys. The Cardinals extended more than 15 2015 offers Wednesday and one 2016 recruit. They will have several good recruits in this weekend for Junior Day Camp.
