The University of Louisville football team picked up its first commitment in the Class of 2016 on Saturday afternoon.
The Cardinals have started to focus more on some prospects in that class. On the same day as the commitment, the staff offered one of the top rising quarterbacks in the class.
Broken Arrow, Okla., quarterback Scotty Gilkey landed an offer from the Cardinals. He was at camp with the Cardinals and earned the offer after finishing the camp.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Gilkey, who recently transferred from Jenks, Okla., said he also has an offer from Louisiana-Monroe. He's been impressive during camps at Arkansas and Oklahoma in recent weeks and also has interest from Texas, Oklahoma State and Tulsa.
Gilkey started as a freshman at a small school - Pawhuska, Okla., where his father was the coach before transferring to Jenks where he was the backup quarterback last season.
Scotty Sr., the father, played tight end at Eastern Illinois the same time as Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was there and the two have kept in touch. The younger Gilkey has worked out several times with Romo.
