Much has been made over Louisville’s relationship in recruiting with the State of Florida.  But Georgia has been a MAJOR recruiting ground for Louisville over the years.  Now with the Cards playing the University of Georgia in Charlotte, NC for the 2014 Belk Bowl, UofL has a chance to make an impact in the state again.  Charlotte is just 2 hours from the Georgia Border.

Louisville has 3 transfers that will be eligible to play next season in Shaq Wiggins, Josh Harvey-Clemons, and Ja’Quay Williams.  Wiggins and Harvey Clemons actually transferred from Georgia after last season, with Williams coming from Texas A&M.  These three are also the only 3 players on Louisville’s roster from the state of Georgia that also sported offers from the Bulldogs.  Starters Will Gardner (injured), Aaron Epps, Lorenzo Mauldin, DeAngelo Brown, and Sheldon Rankins all are Georgia Natives with HUGE impacts on the Cardinal program that were not offered a scholarship with UGA.  It will be interesting to see how this group plays on December 30th in Bank of America Stadium.
