The University of Louisville Football program landed its 10th commitment of the 2016 recruiting class on Memorial Day when Spring Hill HS (Columbia, TN) product Tylin Oden pledged to the Cards.

Tylin (6’5, 180) is a 4-star prospect according to Rivals, and a 3-star prospect according to 247sports and Scout.com. Oden joins Taylor Yamanhoa, Seth Dawkins, Desmond Fitzpatrick, Baylen Buchanan, Rodjay Burns, Robbie Bell, Derek Dorsey, Austin Cummins, and Austin Johnson in the 2016 signing class this February.

The Cards are still in play with several high caliber prospects who have committed to UofL but then backed off…we will continue to monitor those players.

Tylin Oden chose Louisville over offers from Mississippi State, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt.

Comeback Cards Rally Beat UNC 7-4; Face Clemson 3:00 Today

Whiting-1

Louisville Baseball persevered for its 1st ever ACC Tournament win in a 7-4 decision over the North Carolina Tar Heels.

The Cardinal Nine found themselves down early when the 1st Tar Heel batter of the game, Tyler Ramirez, took freshman UofL starter Sean Leland deep to take a 1-0 advantage.  Leland steadied after loading the bases with no outs and managed to exit the 1st frame with just minimal damage from the leadoff homer by Ramirez.
