Profile: Jared Goldwire
Position: Defensive lineman
Location: Fort Scott, Kan., Community College
Recruiting: Originally a UTEP signee out of high school, Goldwire went to Fort Scott and turned it into a bunch of big-time offers. He picked U of L over Alabama, Arizona State, Kansas State, Miami, Ole Miss, TCU and others.
The Scouting report: The UTEP bounce back has a ton of talent and will be a great run-stopper and pass rusher combination for the Cardinals. He finished with 46 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 11.5 tackles-for-loss as a freshman in 2016 and will have three years to play two at U of L.
Overall analysis: The Cardinals needed help at defensive line and he's another major addition. Goldwire will have a shot to step right in and play for the Cardinals from day one when he steps on campus.
