Louisville lands a commitment from 3-star safety P.J. Blue from the state of Alabama

The University of Louisville football staff dipped into the state of Alabama for another commitment. The Cardinals landed a commitment from three-star safety P.J. Blue of Montgomery, Ala., Park Crossing High School. He's the 23rd commitment in the Class of 2016.

L.D. Scott scored again for the University of Louisville football team.

Scott, the Cardinals' defensive line coach, picked up a major recruiting coup on Tuesday afternoon when he landed a commitment from Montgomery, Ala., Park Crossing High School safety P.J. Blue.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Blue, who de-committed from South Carolina in October, is the eighth commitment in the past two classes for the Cardinals from Alabama. He's the third member of the Class of 2016 from the state.

"That's who it all boiled down too," Blue said of U of L. "They've believed in me since day one and they've shown consistent interest."

Blue had a bunch of offers after his recruitment opened up again, including Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina and Kentucky along with some serious interest from Alabama.

He said the U of L coaches told him he would be used like the Cardinals currently use Josh Harvey-Clemons with Blue noting "a DB and LB depending on the package."

As a senior, Blue had 67 tackles, two interceptions and six pass deflections for an 8-3 team at Park Crossing. He transferred from Jemison.

Blue is ranked as the No. 35 safety in the country by Scout.com and checks in at No. 2 in Alabama and No. 14 in the South. He will make an official visit to U of L on Jan. 15 and said it will be his only visit.
