The University of Louisville has been hard at work recruiting the class of 2014 and on Friday morning they secured a commitment from a standout defensive back.

Michael Johnson (6'3, 190) pledged to the Cardinals program after receiving a scholarship offer just days before.

"I am really excited because it's a dream come true," said Johnson, who is a former teammate of incoming Cardinal cornerback Chucky Williams. "One more year and I am going to be on the big stage and a couple of players who are up there are from my neighborhood."

Johnson also held a scholarship offer from West Virginia, while Central Florida, Miami, Nebraska, and Oregon are expressed heavy interest.

As a junior, Johnson recorded 99 tackles, seven forced fumbles and one interception. He also pulled in 10 catches on offense.
