Louisville Football landed its 4th commitment of the 2016 class on Wednesday night, when Defensive Tackle TJ London made his pledge to the Cards. Nicknamed “Big Snack” because of his huge frame (he ranges from 302-402 lbs on recruiting sites), London is from the same High School as 2015 signee Khane Pass in Columbus, GA. Carver High School is also home to one of Louisville’s top quarterback targets in 2016 Jawon Pass.
TJ is a Nose Guard on the defensive line….a rare position on the recruiting trail for the Cardinals typically. Louisville has done a great job defensively despite not having the guys that have the type of frame that Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense typically requires. London has that size.
T.J. London chose Louisville over early offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State, and NC State. More offers will assuredly roll in. He also joins Desmond Fitzpatrick, Keaton Torre, and Baylen Buchanan in the 2016 class for the Cards.
