Unswayed? UofL commits finish Ole Miss visit

Louisville commitments Gerod Holliman and Andrew Johnson visited Ole Miss this weekend. Before committing to Louisville earlier this month, the Miami Southridge duo had been Rebel commitments. Was Ole Miss able to sway Holliman and Johnson away from the Cardinals this weekend?

Louisville commitments Gerod Holliman and Andrew Johnson visited Ole Miss this weekend.

Before committing to Louisville earlier this month, the Miami Southridge duo had been Rebel commitments since last summer.

That's why Holliman and Johnson's decision to visit Oxford less than two weeks before National Signing Day touched a nerve with Louisville fans, who were uneasy that the talented defensive backs would change their minds and wind up back in the Ole Miss commitment column.


Gerod Holliman and Andrew Johnson left Ole Miss committed to Charlie Strong's Cardinals.
But Holliman, a four-star safety, and Johnson, a three-star cornerback, left Ole Miss Sunday morning the same way they arrived Friday – committed to Charlie Strong's Louisville program. According to sources, both players enjoyed their visits to Oxford, MS, but the official visit did nothing to sway either player to switch their commitments back to the Rebels this weekend.

Holliman, Strong's highest-rated defensive prospect, announced his commitment to Louisville at halftime of the U.S. Army All-American game Jan. 8 in San Antonio, TX. Johnson followed his lead the same day.

Holliman and Johnson are key members of Louisville's recruiting class, a class that ranks No. 27 nationally and sits atop the Big East rankings. They are both expected to sign with the Cardinals on National Signing Day.
