Kareem Orr makes it No. 6 for Cards

The University of Louisville picked up commitment No. 6 in the Class of 2015 on Tuesday afternoon, landing a verbal pledge from Chattanooga, Tenn., Notre Dame athlete Kareem Orr. Cardinal Authority has the latest on the commitment.

The University of Louisville football program is on a commitment run this week and it continued on Tuesday afternoon.

Chattanooga, Tenn. Notre Dame High School two-way athlete Kareem Orr was a U of L's camp over the weekend and on Tuesday gave a commitment to the Cardinals.

Orr is the sixth commitment in the Class of 2015 and the fourth commitment the Cardinals have landed since last Thursday.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Orr picked U of L over Middle Tennessee and East Carolina but also had offers from Duke and Western Kentucky.

"I really loved the campus and felt like it was the place for me," Orr said. "It was a great fit and I liked everything about it."

While Orr said he wasn't really nervous for the U of L camp, he knew it was his chance to prove to the U of L staff he could play.

"I felt like I went there and did great," he said. "They liked what they saw and I liked what I saw about them and the campus. It's a perfect fit. I'm really excited about it."

Orr is likely to play defensive back at the next level but said the U of L coaches told him "they liked I could play both sides." He had 65 catches for 1,300 yards as a wide receiver last season at Notre Dame.
