Geffard twins change plans

Talented Florida safety's Isaac and Jacob Geffard committed to Louisville last week and were expected to make their official visits to UofL this weekend. However, the Geffard twins had a change of plans late last week and didn't trip to the ‘Ville. InsideTheVille.com has the scoop.

"We actually didn't come up because coach Bill Miller came to my house last Wednesday and we talked about it (visit) and he said Tuesday was the last day of school and most of the guys weren't going to be there," Isaac Geffard said. "We could have went last Friday but we'd rather go when most of the players are there so we could really get the feel of our teammates and the campus. So (we) just decided to reschedule for next week."

The Geffard's will travel to Louisville next weekend instead to check out their future team.

"We're coming up next Friday because he said a lot of the players are coming back (to campus)," Geffard said. "So we'll be up there next Friday."

Both two-star prospects, Isaac Geffard states his relationship with Miller, Louisville's linebacker coach, as the main reason he and his twin brother, Jacob, verbally committed to the Cardinals last week.

"We had a real good relationship with Coach Miller," Geffard said. "We really felt like he kept it honest throughout the recruiting process and was the most consistent. Coach Miller didn't recruit one of us harder than the other – he stood with both of us the whole time. He talked to my parents and was concerned about academics and everything like that. So I really had a good relationship with Coach Miller. He's known my (high school) coach for a long time and I knew if Coach Ratkevich could trust him I could trust him. We feel like Louisville is a good place for us."

Though Miller coaches linebackers at Louisville, Geffard believes he and his brother's future resides in the UofL secondary.

"Most likely we'll play DB because we're low on DB's and basically lost four of our starting DB's - we lost a senior at the beginning of the year because of a broken arm (Richard Raglin), we lost our corner, Woodny (Turenne), after he broke his collarbone. And we put our freshman corner in and he was out with a hamstring injury against Rutgers (Karldell Dunning)," Geffard said. "So we're low on DB's now and he felt (safety) was the spot we were going to play at the next level. I definitely think that's where we're going to be at."
