Gerald Christian's brother visiting U of L

The list of official visitors headed to the University of Louisville's regular-season finale is now 10 after the addition of Geron Christian. The three-star offensive lineman from Ocala, Fla., Trinity Christian is the brother of current U of L senior Gerald Christian.

Ocala, Fla., Trinity Catholic offensive lineman Geron Christian has a little added incentive for attending the University of Louisville's regular-season finale on Saturday when the Cardinals play rival Kentucky.

The 6-foot-5, 3505-pound Christian will be able to see his brother - U of L tight end Gerald Christian go through Senior Day activities - and the younger Christian will also be on an official visit to the U of L campus.

Geron Christian is going to de-committed from %%MATCH_7%% and is now going to look at other school with the Cardinals getting the first visit.

"He wants to speak with the Miami staff first," Trinity Catholic coach Justin Wentworth told Scout.com's Corey Bender, who first reported the news. "The kid wants to do things the right way. But I think that is where it is heading."

Ranked as the No. 47 tackle in the country according to Scout.com, Christian went to camp at Miami in June and earned an offer from the Hurricanes. He also on taking official visits to Arkansas, %%MATCH_8%% and Mississippi State in January.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg said: "This is an underrated tackle prospect that can get off the ball and really get after you. He has a good initial pop with his hands. Christian has good feet and athleticism. He has good size and it appears he has the frame to add a considerable amount of weight."

Gerald Christian originally signed with Florida but then transferred to Louisville. He sat out two years ago and has been the starting tight end for the Cardinals for two seasons.
