Famurewa remains committed

Three-star linebacker Henry Famurewa of Powder Springs, Ga., was an early pledge to Louisville. He tells Cardinal Authority that he remains committed to the Cardinals program, but has some concerns.

The sudden vacancy of Louisville's head coach position is taking a toll on the many Cardinal commitments.

Many are unsure, some have reaffirmed their commitment and a pair have decided to open things back up.

Three-star linebacker Henry Famurewa remains committed, but unsure about what will come next.

"Right now everything is confusing," he told Cardinal Authority on Sunday afternoon. "As far as my decision to go to Louisville, I'm still committed."

The product of Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern, Famurewa reached out to the remaining coaching staff earlier in the day. His hope is that his position coach will remain at Louisville and not follow Charlie Strong to Austin.

"I talked to Coach Brian Jean-Mary this morning," he said. "If he leaves with Strong to Texas that would be a big blow and might make me reconsider my commitment. I like Coach Jean-Mary a lot, so that's important to me."

He also plans to remain patient to see who U of L hires to replace Strong.

"I also really would like to see who comes in as the new coach. I've heard a lot about Petrino and know that he was at Arkansas and at Louisville before. It's important to wait to see who comes in.

"Hopefully by signing day, which is about a month from now, everything will be more settled."

Famurewa has remained firm with his commitment since doing so in June.

"I haven't really talked to anyone else since I committed," he said, adding that one school has reached out since the Strong to Texas reports began. "Mississippi State wanted me to call them, but I haven't."
