A notebook of University of Louisville football recruiting items, including several Junior Day updates.

Cards high on Tennessee DT list

Cordova, Tenn., High School defensive tackle Jerome Carvin has been high on the University of Louisville for some time. The Cardinals were the first team to offer the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Carvin.

Now, he has more than a dozen scholarship offers and still loves the Cardinals.

"They're really high on my list," Carvin said after visiting for Junior Day on Saturday.

"The visit was great. I got to spend time with the coaches, tour the facilities and see the new dorms. It was a lot of fun."

Carvin, who has been offered by Alabama and Ole Miss since his visit to U of L, said the Cardinals will always have a "high spot" on list because they were the first school to offer.

Cards offer 4-star DT

Four-star defensive tackle Darnell Jefferies of Covington, Ga., Newton High School has landed an offer from Louisville.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Jeffries has double digit offers, including Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Colorado State.

He recently visited Georgia Tech and is hearing from Florida State, Clemson and others.

Memphis-area prospect has great trip

Cordova, Tenn., High School standout Cory Dyson plays nose guard at the high school level but made a visit to the U of L campus last week and said the Cardinals' staff has been recruiting him as a fullback.

The 6-foot, 275-pound Dyson said he's been hearing some from other schools but U of L left a good impression.

"Louisville was great, it was a great experience," Dyson said. "All of the coaches were nice and it felt like home. The facilities stood out the most. Everything there is A1 and I'm ready to go back and visit."

Cards offer Georgia corner

Alpharetta, Ga., cornerback Jaycee Horn has landed an offer from Louisville. He tweeted the offer earlier this morning.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Horn is one of the top 2018 corners in the state of Georgia. He now claims more than two dozen offers, including Maryland, Ole Miss, Indiana, West Virginia, Mississippi State, Minnesota and Duke among others.

Jaycee’s father is Joe Horn, who was a four-time NFL Pro Bowler.

3-star Oklahoma safety has U of L offer

Louisville has offered Tulsa, Okla., Union High School safety Patrick Fields, a three-star prospect who is one of the most recruited prospects in the secondary in the Class of 2018.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Fields has offers from Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Minnesota, Vanderbilt and others.
