Wide Receiver

  • Tyler Hudson 6-2, 197, Jr.
  • Jaelin Carter 6-2, 208, Sr.
  • Elijah Downing 6-3, 197, R-Fr.

Tyler Hudson comes to Louisville from Central Arkansas where he STACKED FCS accolades. 2019 Southland Conference Freshman of the Year, Southland Conference 2020 Player of the Year, 2021 ASUN Offensive Player of the Year. Hudson has been a FCS superstar for 3 seasons and he’s looking to see if he can have the same success in Power 5 Football with Louisville.

Jaelin Carter was a standout at Eastern Kentucky. The Manual HS Standout appeared in 3 games last season.

Who We Are Watching: Chris Bell comes to Louisville with great size at 6’2, 220 lbs from Greenville Christian School in Mississippi. Bell put up catches against top level Cornerback talent in high school, but still managed to fly under the radar. Bell is physical and can high point a football.

Wide Receiver

  • Ahmari Huggins Bruce 5-10, 163, Soph.
  • Braden Smith 5-10, 192. Sr.
  • Josh Johnson 5-11, 187, Gr.

Ahmari Huggins-Bruce made an impact as a true freshman last season catching 29 passes for 444 yards and 4 TDs (should have been 5). AHB drew Harry Douglas comparisons with his similar build and ability to get open. In fact, Harry didn’t have AHB numbers until his sophomore year. We’ll see if Ahmari can build on his great freshman season in 2022.

Braden Smith took a nasty injury against Florida State that took two stages of surgery during his recovery. Braden is fully cleared to play but we’ll have to see how he does during Fall Camp. He’s a veteran and a former QB that Satterfield likes to use for trickery at times.

Josh Johnson is the elder statesman of the group. He’s been at Louisville since 2017 and tore his ACL in 2019. Josh is a solid wide receiver with good hands. He’ll factor.

Wide Receiver

  • Dee Wiggins 6-3, 195, Jr.
  • Ahmari Huggins Bruce 5-10, 163, Soph.

Dee Wiggins has played a lot of Football. He tallied 3 catches for 85 yards and 2 TDs against Louisville in 2019. Dee played in 4 games last year before entering the portal in order to maintain his eligibility.

Who We Are Watching: Chance Morrow at 6’6 200 lbs from Charlotte, NC is an intriguing prospect. Morrow held offers from Oklahoma, Ohio State, Miami, etc. We’ll see if the freshman can crack the rotation early. He’s certainly a big target.
