Louisville has landed a commitment from Class of 2018 cornerback Jamal Anderson from Homestead, Fla.; the third '18 commitment

The University of Louisville football staff has landed a commitment from Class of 2018 cornerback Jamal Anderson. The Homestead, Fla., South Dade High School prospect is the third commitment in the Class of 2018.

The University of Louisville football staff has landed commitment No. 3 in the Class of 2018 - Homestead, Fla., South Dade Senior High School cornerback Jamal Anderson.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Anderson said Louisville was his first offer and said "Louisville is a great place for me."

"It's a great campus, the players are great and the coaches take you in as a family," Anderson said. "I love all of that. I also want to further my career and also my education and Louisville is a great place to do it."

Scout.com national analyst Corey Bender said Anderson has "undeniable potential."

"Great length, frame and upside, but projects best in the back end at free safety," Bender said. "He doesn't have the hips and quick twitch to play corner long-term, so moving back to safety is the best bet at this time.

"Petrino's staff has done an outstanding job of getting on these kids early. Undeniable potential with Anderson."

Anderson said the South Florida connection to Louisville was huge for him. He was recruited by new U of L secondary coach Keith Heyward and noted he knows former U of L linebacker James Burgess, who was also from Homestead, Fla.
