Scott Satterfield and staff had a stellar weekend hosting prospects on campus this weekend. Louisville landed 4 new players in advance of National Signing Day on February 6th.
Ean Pfeifer 6-4, 245 Tight End – Grad Transfer Vanderbilt
Pfeifer was a 3-star prospect out of Bentonville, AR out of high school as a part of the 2015 Vanderbilt signing class. Ean redshirted in 2015 and in 2016 was SEC All-Freshman after making 8 starts as a redshirt freshman. Ean struggled with injuries during the 2017 season and left the program in June of 2018 after making 13 starts. Pfeifer has graduated and has dropped his weight from 305 to 245 in preparation to find his spot at a program that would have him as a tight end.
Louisville certainly is in need of a tight end having just one scholarship tight end (Jordan Davis). Scott Satterfield’s offensive style is dependent on the tight end position so having an experienced blocker at this spot is a HUGE COUP for the program. It’s unclear what Pfeifer might bring to the table as a receiving option at tight end, but the search for tight ends certainly isn’t over for the program.
Pfeifer has 2 years left to play as a graduate transfer but fulfills a giant step in filling one of the largest roster voids for UofL Football. Ean also considered Baylor and SMU.
Joshua Black 6-4, 270, Offensive Tackle – Stone Mountain, GA
Joshua Black flipped his commitment from Georgia Tech to Louisville on Sunday following an official visit to UofL. Black said that a major part of his decision was as a result of not hearing from the new Georgia Tech staff after Paul Johnson’s retirement. It’s unclear why Geoff Collins & his staff at GT didn’t make contact.
Offensive Line Coach Dwayne Ledford now will be able to tutor Joshua Black who also held offers from Tennessee, South Carolina, Wake Forest, and of course Georgia Tech. Black is a 3-star Offensive Tackle prospect.
Monty Montgomery 5-11, 218, Linebacker – Hutchinson CC originally from Norcross, GA
Louisville has been hunting for linebackers and found one on Sunday when Monty Montgomery committed to the program. Montgomery, originally from Norcross, GA signed with Tulane out of high school in 2017 and transferred to Hutchinson before enrolling in New Orleans. Montgomery redshirted his first season at JUCO and has 3 years of eligibility remaining.
Montgomery is a 2-star prospect and was committed to Arkansas State until Louisville offered. Monty had 78 tackles, 7 sacks, 3 INTs, 3 FFs, and scored two defensive TDs last year as a redshirt freshman at Hutchinson and earned the 2018 Jayhawk Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Montgomery held offers from South Alabama, Southern Miss, Old Dominion and Arkansas State.
Jackson Gregory 6-3, 280, Center – Westlake, OH
Jackson Gregory is not yet rated by recruiting services. Center is a position of need for the Cardinals having moved several players in and out of the role last year. Also Robbie Bell is still on the roster, but seen practicing at offensive tackle before the coaching change.
Ja’Darien Boykin 6-2, 235, WDE/OLB. 4-star. Gray, GA (NE of Macon). Also strongly considering Miami. Holds offers from Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Pitt, Virginia, Washington State, and Colorado State.
Jamious Griffin 5-10, 205, RB. 4-star. Rome, GA. Georgia Tech likely leader before visit. Also considering Auburn and Florida State.
Zach Edwards 6-3, 235, LB/DE. 3-star. Starkville, MS. Considering Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Miss St, LSU and Memphis.
Jamel Starks 5-11, 180, ATH (likely Safety). Decatur, GA. Top 4 are Louisville, Nebraska, NC State, and West Virginia.
Keeyon Stewart 5-11, 160, CB. 3-star. Houston, TX. Formerly committed to Texas Tech. Now says TCU & Louisville are his top 2.
DeQuan Watts- 6-2, 165, ATH. 3-star. Atlanta, GA. Also considering South Carolina, UCF, and Oregon
Tyler Devera 6-4, 225, TE, 3-Star Wayne, NJ. Also considering Maryland & Colorado.
