Four-star linebackers Nick Dawson and Keith Brown have Louisville on their short lists and will announce their college decisions at the U.S. Army All-American game this Saturday in San Antonio, TX. Will the Cardinals receive good news from both prospects?


 
Nick Dawson: Four-star linebacker Nick Dawson from Charlotte (NC) Berry has narrowed his options to Louisville, Clemson and NC State. Will Dawson play in the Big East or ACC? All signs point to Charlie Strong's Cardinals, as Wolfpack and Tigers insiders have already written him off. Dawson, who Louisville believes can play right away in place of Dexter Heyman at middle linebacker, has visited Louisville, where his father lives, multiple times, including an official visit last month. After checking out the Cardinals, Dawson proclaimed Louisville his leader. Dawson made an official visit to NC State in November, but didn't make one to Clemson. It would be an upset if Dawson doesn't select Louisville, but don't expect the other schools to throw in the towel until it's official.

Prediction: Louisville

 
Keith Brown: A four-star linebacker from Miami, Brown has 4.5 speed and excels in coverage. A one-time Miami commit, Brown recently de-committed from Illinois because of a coaching change. Brown, along with his brother Lamar Atkins, made an official visit to Louisville last month and they will attend the same college. Though Atkins isn't expected to be an instant contributor, Brown could make an immediate impact. Brown's choice appears between two schools – Louisville and Miami. With the Hurricanes facing NCAA sanctions, the Cardinals appear poised to add Brown, who will enroll early in college, to the fold.

Prediction: Louisville
