More additions for Louisville football?

University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino and his staff continue to stay in the mix with some top junior-college talent. Two top JUCO players from Georgia Military College will be visiting the U of L campus this week. Cardinal Authority has the latest.

After adding a high-profile transfer and junior-college addition, University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino and his staff are back at it trying to add more talent.

Two highly-regarded prospects from Georgia Military Academy - running back Jovon Robinson and quarterback Pat Thomas - are expected to visit the U of L campus on Wednesday.

Thomas would be eligible to play immediately next season, while Robinson is a former Auburn signee and will enroll at a school in December.

"It's going to be much talent in Louisville tomorrow," Thomas tweeted.

The 5-foot-11, 225-pound Robinson is considered one of the top junior-college prospects in the country.

A native or Memphis, Robinson originally signed with Auburn in the Class of 2012 but was eventually declared academically ineligible.

Robinson broke the national junior college rushing record last season with a 2,387 yards at Georgia Military. He had 34 rushing touchdowns and averaged 8.8 yards a carry.

Already visiting Alabama and Auburn, Robinson is also considering Georgia, Florida State and Tennessee among others.

The 6-4, 190-pound Thomas signed with UAB - where current U of L offensive coordinator Garrick McGee was the head coach - but has since gained his release and is looking around.

Originally from Norcross, Ga., Thomas threw for 1,695 yards and 17 touchdowns with only six interceptions last season. He led GMC to the NJCAA national championship where the school fell to East Mississippi.

Thomas and Robinson are close friends. He had picked UAB over Western Kentucky, where Petrino was recruiting him.
