Louisville football to the state's top prospects in the Class of 2019 - 'We want to keep you at home'

Louisville football to the state's top prospects in the Class of 2019 - 'We want to keep you at home.'

The state of Kentucky's football Class of 2019 is loaded with talent.

The University of Louisville football staff has already offered at least seven in-state prospects from the '19 class and have kept in contact with a few others in recent months.

On Saturday prior to the U of L spring game, several '19 prospects said the U of L coaches pulled the in-state '19 targets into a room together and began by sending a message.

"We want you all," Manual athlete Aidan Robbins said they were told.

Added Christian Academy quarterback Austin Carr: "The coaches told us we would be the guys."

Carr, who doesn't have an offer from U of L yet, and Christian Academy wide receiver/defensive back Milton Wright were prospects on campus yesterday from the '19 class.

Robbins was also in attendance along with Glasgow offensive lineman Tanner Bowles.

South Warren lineman Jacob Lacey had a baseball game and showed up late, but was still given the same message.

"They love the class of 2019," Robbins said. "They're wanting us to team up at Louisville and they really think we can start something great."

Other top '19 targets from the state who have been offered by U of L are: Moore defensive end JJ Weaver, Trinity linebacker Stephen Herron, Doss linebacker Shawn'kel Knight-Goff and Scott County offensive lineman Bryan Hudson.

Doss defensive end Ricky Barber and Knox Central running back Adam Renfro are others who have not been offered.
