Cards snag another commit from Georgia

The University of Louisville landed another commitment from Georgia in the Class of 2015, picking up a verbal commitment from Lilburn, Ga., Parkview High School defensive end G.G. Robinson. He picked the Cardinals over Virginia. Cardinal Authority has the latest on Robinson's commit.

The University of Louisville football staff has put more emphasis on recruiting the state of Georgia and it's working.

The Cardinals have landed five commitments from the Peach State after Lilburn, Ga., Parkview High School defensive end G.G. Robinson committed to the Cardinals on Thursday night.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Robinson plays both sides of the ball but said the Cardinals were recruiting him as a defensive end.

"I like how coach (Todd) Grantham recruited me so hard and showed me that he needed me," Robinson said. "He showed me he needs me on the team and I have a connection with those other Georgia boys up there. When I was on my visit Shaq (Wiggins) and JaQuay (Williams), I really liked those guys and they're Georgia boys.

"I liked that a lot. I had a good connection and they have a lot of Georgia boys."

Robinson is a three-star prospect, according to Scout.com, and also had offers from Cincinnati, Mississippi State, South Florida, Wake Forest Syracuse and others.

After a June visit to U of L and one later to Virginia, Robinson said "it was easy to get it down to two schools," but then it became tough. He said he went back and forth.

"I was thinking about one school and then the other and just so many things," Robinson said. "So, finally I just decided I needed to make my decision and that's it. I like both schools.

"But I know I found the place for me."

Robinson is the 13th commitment overall and the fifth from Georgia in the class for U of L.
