U of L football: Recruiting roundup

Just over two weeks until national signing day and the University of Louisville coaching staff is out and working a ton of prospects. The Cardinals will host a bunch of visitors this weekend and the staff is also working on the 2015 class. Here are a few updates we have learned throughout the day:

CARDS OFFER Miami QB

Louisville has officially offered Miami Booker T. Washington quarterback Treon Harris, who is committed to Florida State, a scholarship.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Harris is a four-star prospect and also received an offer from Alabama on Monday. He's considered a "soft" commitment to Florida State and made a visit last weekend to Florida.

Harris also has a visit set up for Auburn this weekend and Miami on Jan. 31 but other schools, including Louisville, are jockeying for a visit.

As a senior, Harris passed for 2,113 yards and 28 touchdowns and ran for 650 yards and nine more scores for the Scout.com national champions. He had over 5,900 yards and 75 TDs passing and 2,300 yards and 50 TDs rushing for his career at Booker T. Washington, who finished 14-0.

CARDS OFFER BIG-TIME '15 DEFENSIVE END

Deerfield Beach, Fla., defensive end Jason Strowbridge is the latest 2015 prospect to land an offer from the new staff at U of L.

The 6-foot-4, 241-pound Strowbridge is the No. 26 defensive end in the country in '15, according to Scout.com.

As a junior, Strowbridge had eight sacks in seven games and ranks as the No. 201 prospect in the Scout 300.

Strowbridge picked up his first offer from Marshall and now also has offers from West Virginia, Miami and Temple.

BENGALS COUSIN LANDS OFFER

U of L was also in to see Lake Worth, Fla., Park Vista junior running back/linebacker Zander Bernard.

The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Bernard is the cousin of current Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard.

He is a high school teammate of former U of L commit Marques Gayot, who was committed to the Cardinals but will sign with Miami next month.

OFFER OUT FOR '15 FLORIDA LINEMAN

The previous U of L staff offered a scholarship to Sebastian, Fla., River High School junior offensive tackle Marcus Norman.

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound Norman has been informed by the new staff that he still has that offer. He also has an offer from Cincinnati.

Norman is a very physical left tackle in his highlight clip.
