Signing Day Surprise! Rhaheed inks with Cards

Three-star Sharieff Rhaheed announced for Louisville during a ceremony at his school on Wednesday morning

Bobby Petrino and his staff picked up an early National Signing Day surprise when Fort Pierce (Fla.) Central DE/LB Sharieff Rhaheed announced for Louisville at his school.

A three-star and top-rated Treasure Coast prospect, Rhaheed chose Louisville over a host of schools, including Arkansas, Michigan State and Missouri.

"We just got better at the linebacker position," U of L head coach Bobby Petrino said.

Rhaheed made his official visit with Louisville last weekend and it appeared to tilt the scales in the Cardinals favor.

"That went better than I thought it would," he said of his time visiting U of L.
