Jarrett Davis, a 5-11 165 lb WR from Sandy Creek, GA is the newest recruit to jump on board the University of Louisville football bandwagon, or as we call it here, the Steve Kragthorpe Train of Football Pain. Davis joins Sandy Creek teammate Lacy Coleman, a defensive end, as a verbal pledge for the Cardinals.
Davis claims to have clocked a 4.3 40 time, but I’m not so sure that is an accurate representation of his true speed. However, he gets open and catches the ball, which is the main goal of a wide receiver as I understand it.
The other commit comes from here in the ‘Ville as strong legged kicker/punter Nick Robertson from Louisville Trinity has also committed. Robertson, 6-5 190 lbs, has a big leg and should have no problem coming in and competing right away for the kicking job. Just my personal opinion, but if Robertson can kick PATs, he’s got the job won. We had heard talk about him committing for some time, but it was not confirmed until this morning.
By my count, this brings the total count of Kragthorpe commitments to twelve. A common thread amongst almost all of the these early commitments is these kids play for winning programs. I like this strategy a great deal because if you have a roster full of kids who never/rarely lose and don’t like losing, it definitely helps build a winning team attitude. While attitude is important, its still up to the coaches and players to transform that attitude to wins on the field.
