I’m finally proud to say that I am verbally committing myself to the University of Louisville Cardinals, this is a dream come true #GoCards

Louisville Football picked up a pair of future Cardinals on Thursday, the 7th & 8th commitments of the 2016 Signing Class that will ink in February.
The 1st was Mill Creek High School’s (Hoschton, GA) Robbie Bell. Bell 6’5, 285 is an offensive tackle recruited by Todd Grantham. Bell has the frame that Bobby Petrino & Chris Klenakis have had huge success with over the years and committed to Louisville over early offers from Colorado State & Middle Tennessee State.
The 2nd pledge of the day was DeSales High School’s (Louisville, KY) Austin Johnson 6’2, 190 lbs., brother of former Louisville punter Ryan Johnson. Louisville was Johnson’s 1st offer, but clearly Austin comes into UofL with strong pedigree.
Robbie Bell and Austin Johnson join Austin Cummins, Derek Dorsey, Rodjay Burns, T.J. London, Desmond Fitzpatrick, and Baylen Buchanan in the 2016 recruiting class for the Cards.
