Cards offer 4-star '18 WR

The University of Louisville football staff has been hitting the Nashville, Tenn., area hard in recent months.

The Cardinals have one commitment in the Class of 2017 and are in on several other prospects from the area. And now offensive line coach Chris Klenakis has offered one of the elite prospects in the '18 class from Nashville.

Brentwood Academy four-star wide receiver Camron Johnson reports an offer from Louisville.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Johnson now has six offers, including Tennessee, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Illinois and Ole Miss. 

Johnson was a standout for a 12-1 Brentwood team that captured the Division II-AA state title in Tennessee.

Trinity WR enjoys Louisville camp

Trinity High School junior Rondale Moore attended Louisville's camp recently and was one of the top performers.

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound Moore is a speedy wide receiver who played last season at New Albany, Ind., and was also a top basketball player. He said the U of L camp was "really good" and that he "really liked how I performed."

"It ran very smooth," Moore said. "I came home with a few things I learned."

Moore now has two offers after landing his first from Kentucky and one on Sunday from Indiana.

Local RB performs well at Louisville camp

Butler High School running back Greg Bethel is looking for an offer and performed well at U of L's camp last week.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Bethel worked out with U of L running back coach Kolby Smith and said he "thought I did real good."

"Kolby said I was the best back that day and that I was on their board," Bethel said. "He just didn't tell me where I'm at on the board.

"I wanted them to know I was the best back in the city."

As a junior, Bethel played in only five games because of an injury but he rushed for 424 yards and five touchdowns. He also had two receiving TDs and averaged seven tackles a game on the defensive side of the ball.
