One of the early confirmed signees on National Signing Day came from Hiram, Ga., defensive end Jonathan Greenard, who had been committed for over six months.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Greenard listened to other schools - including Missouri - but stayed committed to the Cardinals throughout the process.
"It's a weight off my shoulders," Greenard said after signing. "And it's a dream come true. I just can't wait to get started."
Greenard said playing for defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is "going to be a lot of fun," and was a huge reason he picked Louisville.
Greenard had a sensational senior season at Hiram, netting eight sacks on the season. He finished his career with 13 sacks.
Greenhard has posted a personal best of 4.71 seconds in the 40-yard dash, to go along with a 33” standing vertical jump, and a maximum of 270 pounds in the bench press. This is the first year that he has not played basketball.
