National Signing Day Headquarters

LOUISVILLE, KY --- Today is the biggest football recruiting day of the year, and as you've seen over the last few years, is the place to be on National Signing Day. The Cardinals enter the day with a Top 50 ranked class, but are awaiting word from several big name prospects.

Louisville's 2007 recruiting class enters National Signing Day ranked No. 49 nationally in the national team rankings, but could move much higher depending on the decisions of several standout recruits.

Steve Kragthorpe's first recruiting class at Louisville, though relatively small in numbers, is loaded with talented recruits. This year's crop of Louisville recruits is headlined by a number of four-star prospects, including RB's Dale Martin and Victor Anderson, JUCO star defenders LB Willie Williams and CB Woodny Turenne, WR Doug Beaumont and Louisville's quarterback of the future, U.S. Army All-American Matt Simms.

Other members of Louisville's expected class who have received high praise from analysts include Cincinnati (OH) OL Mark Wetterer, Princeton (NJ) OL Greg Tomczyk, Palatka (FL) ATH Josh Miller, Lakeland (FL) CB Bilal Powell, California JUCO DB Chaz Thompson, Newport (KY) DE Zach Kiernan and Olympia (WA) TE Michael Fennerty.

    While Louisville won't sign many prospects from the state of Kentucky this year, the Cardinals did land the two best prospects in the Commonwealth – Kentucky Mr. Football Doug Beaumont, a highly-ranked WR from Louisville Male and Victor Anderson, a four-star RB from Louisville St. X. Newport Central Catholic standout Zach Kiernan will also ink with Louisville.
