A look at a few University of Louisville football recruiting notes; Cards have a Saturday visitor, several new offers and a decision coming

A notebook of items regarding recruiting and the University of Louisville football program, including a Saturday visitor, a couple of new offers and a pending decision this week.

Big Saturday visitor for the Cardinals

The University of Louisville football staff hosted a big visitor on Saturday at practice - Jalen Browder.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound three-star wide receiver from Dallas, Ga., made the trip up and checked out the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon. He attends East Paulding High School and is the No. 11 ranked wide receiver in Georgia.

Browder recently listed his final 10 schools: Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina State, Maryland, Mississippi, Illinois, Tulane, Kansas State and South Carolina.

As a junior, in 2015, Browder caught 63 passes for 837 yards and 10 touchdowns. 


Georgia WR ready for a decision

Conyers, Ga., Salem High School wide receiver Justin Marshall is one of the top targets left on the board for the Louisville staff and has set a decision date of Aug. 15.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Marshall has 31 scholarship offers but has narrowed his list to: Auburn, Georgia, Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.

New Louisville co-offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway is recruiting Marshall. Galloway had been his main recruiter at West Virginia and called him soon after he took the new job at U of L.

"That's my guy," Marshall said of Galloway.


Cards offer freshman WR's brother

West Bloomfield, Mich., wide receiver Christian Fitzpatrick - the brother of current U of L freshman Dez Fitzpatrick - has landed an offer from the Cardinals' staff and it's his first.

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Fitzpatrick is a member of the Class of 2020 and is the first U of L offer in that class.

Fitzpatrick is expected to be one of the top players in the '20 class in Michigan.


Louisville offers in-state star

Louisville has also extended an offer to one of the elite 2019 prospects in Kentucky.

The offer went out Friday to Doss defensive end Shawnkel Knight-Goff and was the third for the prospect after Cincinnati and Kentucky had extended offers this summer.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Knight-Goff is a solid athlete and has a ton of potential. He was a standout at one of the U of L summer camps in June, working most of the day with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.
