U of L football: Recruiting notebook

A look at a few recruiting notes from the University of Louisville football program, including several new offers for prospects in the Class of 2015 and 2016.

CARDS FIRST TO OFFER JUCO WRR

Glendale (Ariz.) Community College wide receiver Giovanni Pascascio picked up his first scholarship offer on Monday.

Pascascio said he was offered by U of L offensive line coach Chris Klenakis and offensive coordinator Garrick McGee.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Pascascio had 21 catches for 520 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman at Glendale. He was named a second-team all-conference honors.

"I am very excited for my first offer," he told Scout.com's Jason Jewell. "North Texas, Wisconsin, Memphis and Texas State have all also expressed interest."

FORMER Tennessee WR GETS OFFER

Paul Harris, who played last season at Tennessee, is now at Iowa Western Community College and landed a U of L offer.

Harris is a native of Maryland and enrolled early last January at Tennessee but didn't see a ton of time. He caught one pass for 15 yards.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Harris will play one year at Iowa Western, the same school that produced current U of L freshman Trevon Young.

CARDS FIRST TO OFFER '16 LBER

U of L became the first offer for Spanish Fort, Ala., linebacker Tre Threat.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound member of the Class of 2016 is also hearing from Auburn, Mississippi State and LSU among others.

Threat had 60 tackles, including 5 sacks, last season as a sophomore at Spanish Fort.

CARDS ALSO OFFER Charlotte COMMIT

Louisville also extended an offer on Monday evening to Charlotte, N.C., Rocky River High School cornerback Jaire Alexander.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Alexander is committed to Charlotte.
