Pass first to ink with Louisville

Carver, Ga., Columbus safety Khane Pass became the first Cardinal commitment to make it official

Carver, Ga., Columbus safety Khane Pass made his verbal commitment to the University of Louisville in August and on early Wednesday morning became the first commitment to make it official.

Just prior to 8:00am, the Cardinals football program announced the signing of the three-star prospect.

"The Cards added a playmaker in the secondary in safety Khane Pass from Carver High School," the program announced.

Pass, who made his official visit with Louisville in mid-January, ranks as one of the top 50 prospects in the state of Georgia and is the No. 81 safety prospect nationally.

"Overall, Pass is a physical presence in the defensive backfield and he will bring toughness and physicality to the unit," said recruiting analyst Chad Simmons.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound prospect chose Louisville over scholarship offers from Clemson, Misssissippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State and others.

His younger brother, Jawon, is one of the top quarterback prospects in the Class of 2016 and has trimmed his list of favorites to Louisville, Alabama, North Carolina, Auburn and Virginia Tech.
