Gerod Holliman received clearance from the NCAA Friday and arrived in Louisville on Saturday, where he is expected to begin classes next week.

A four-star defensive back from Miami (FL) Southridge, Holliman, who signed with Louisville in February 2011, attended Milford (NY) prep this past fall after failing to qualify academically. After a discrepancy over two math classes was cleared, Holliman now is set to join Charlie Strong's program.

"I'm happy to be in Louisville and can't wait to start going," Holliman told InsideTheVille.com.

Holliman is part of a talent influx for Strong's Cardinals this semester. Three other four-star prospects - Florida transfer Gerald Christian, Tennessee transfer Matt Milton and US Army All-American Keith Brown - have already enrolled and attending classes at Louisville this semester, which began last Monday.

A former US Army All-American, Holliman is expected to make an impact at safety for Louisville. Holliman, 6'0, 190, led the city of Miami in interceptions as a senior. He will participate during spring practice for Louisville.
