Recruiting: Commitment Update

Several of Louisville's 2009 football commitments were in action on Friday, including Washington, D.C. (Coolidge) quarterback Emmanuel Yeager. Yeager made some big plays down the stretch to lead his team to a comeback victory. How did the Cardinals other commits fare?

  • Palmetto wide receiver Damian Copeland caught three passes for 30 yards Friday night on his team's final drive in regulation to help send the game against Southeast (FL) into overtime. Palmetto lost to Southeast 17-10 in OT. Copeland, 6-0, 185, caught a TD last week against DeSoto.

  • Washington, D.C. (Coolidge) quarterback Emmanuel Yeager ran for two touchdowns (42, 20), including the game-winning 20 yard touchdown run in a 20-18 victory over Collegiate Friday night. Last week, Yeager completed 13 of 22 throws for 228 yards and four touchdowns. He also added one rushing touchdown. Yeager has accounted for seven touchdowns in his team's first two contests this season. "Emmanuel Yeager is a unique individual," Coolidge Coach Jason Lane told DCSportsFan.com. "He's a quarterback in a linebacker's body with a prizefighter's attitude."

  • Mike Privott scored on a two-yard TD run to help Lake Taylor to a 49-7 victory over Denbigh Friday night.

  • Warren East standout Shenard Holton had a rough outing Friday night against Fort Campbell in a lopsided 41-6 loss. Holton, who plays running back for his high school team but was recruited by Louisville as a defensive back, rushed for 80 yards on 13 carries.

  • Updates for Hakeem Smith, who had 11 tackles in his team's season opener last week, and Seagoville (TX) defensive back Zed Evans, were not available.
