<b>BREAKING NEWS</B> Though National Signing Day took place yesterday, brings you news of yet another player, wide receiver <b>Josh McDonald</b>, that has decided to turn down opportunities from Indiana and Tennessee to cast his lot with Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals.

On Wednesday, Louisville fans were officially introduced to the latest class of athletes to sign Letters of Intent to play for the Cardinals. However, the fun doesn't end there as a number of players will choose to join the Louisville program as invited walk-on's over the coming weeks.

The first to do so is receiver Josh McDonald of Castle High School in Newburgh, Indiana.

"I actually committed on Tuesday," said McDonald, who also received invitations from Tennessee and Indiana. "I loved Louisville the whole time. They were my favorite all year. They recruited me the hardest."

McDonald, who made an official visit to U of L on January 21st, was a Class 5A All-State selection by the Indiana Football Coaches Association after pulling in 48 catches for 498 yards and 7 touchdowns.

"We were a running team for the most part," explained McDonald. "I was used in long yardage situations with the deep ball or coming across the middle."

McDonald, who lived in Louisville for 10 years before moving to Evansville for his high school years, realizes that the expectations are high at U of L.

"Coach Petrino said that he has high expectations for me," McDonald told "He said that he expects me to come in and have a great career at U of L."
