DT Randy Salmon, 6-3, 290, Hutchinson (KS) C.C.
Bio: Salmon signed with Louisville in 2008 but didn't qualify academically and went the junior college route. Salmon redshirted last season at Hutchinson and plans to enroll at Louisville next January.
Other offers:
Star ranking: Salmon was rated a two-star prospect and the No. 79 DT coming out of Stockbridge (GA) H.S. two years ago.
The numbers: Salmon bench presses 370-pounds and runs the forty in 4.8-seconds.
Salmon says: "Coach (Brent) Guy....told me I could come in and play for them next year. I think he's going to do a nice job. He's got a lot of experience. I'm real eager to get up there and start playing."
OL Harris Bivin, 6-3, 304, Owensboro (KY) Apollo
Bio: Bivin, one of the top offensive linemen in Kentucky, should be a factor for the Cardinals offensive line down the road. He's also a standout track & field athlete, finishing second in the shot put and fifth in the discuss at the state championship.
Other offers: None.
Star ranking: Bivin is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 11 center in the nation.
Scout.com breakdown: Bivin exhibits good footwork and keeps a wide base while using his hands well in pass protection. He bends his knees and drives his opponents off the ball, controlling him with his powerful upper body. Bivin does a good job of sustaining blocks and then finishing them and shows a nasty streak, playing to the whistle and sometimes a bit past it. One concern with Bivin is simply the level of competition he's playing against.
The numbers: Bivin ran a 5.4 forty at the Scout.com combine in Cincinnati this spring.
Biven says: "They don't want to redshirt me. They want me to come in and play. I'm pretty happy with it. They see me playing either (offensive) guard or center. I'm committed to Louisville and I'm not going to back out."

I liked the coaching staff and the facilities were top of the line."
Scout.com Breakdown: "(Coleman) used speed off the edge and a very good first step to get to the quarterback before offensive linemen (can) get a hand on him. His 40 time (is) not that impressive but his first step was. He needs to add strength but he shows a very good get off." - Chad Simmons

They run that pro-style offense and Coach Kragthorpe knows offense. We're a spread-offensive team at Highland Park and it would just be an easy transition."

It's what I wanted to do since I was younger."
