Louisville added another talented prospect to its 2017 recruiting class on Tuesday.

Roswell, Ga., wide receiver Corey Reed made his commitment to the Cardinals, bringing U of L's total of pledged recruits for the class to 19.  Reed, who was among the standouts at Louisville's 'Light up the Ville' camp last month, is fifth athlete from the state of Georgia to join the current recruiting haul.

"Every since the first visit, I fell in love with the school," Reed said. "It was something about walking around campus.

"My decision was not tough at all. I'm very comfortable with my decision. Just the feeling I get makes me comfortable with my decision and I know that Louisville is the right school for me."

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Reed is rated as the No. 61 receiver prospect nationally by and is among the top 30 in the South Region.  He also considered scholarship offers from Maryland, Miami, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Oregon State and others before making his decision.

Reed caught 42 passes for 684 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games last season at Atlanta Mays.

He said the staff told him he could "come in playing as a freshman," noting Lonnie Galloway was his main recruiter.

"They will make sure I am on top of my academics and however many years I plan on staying here they will continue to prosper me as a player."
