Recruiting Roundup: Part One

ITV provides you with the latest on commitments are saying prior to national signing day, events and possible commitment changes.

Michael Bush
Bush is the player on everyone's mind, including my own. Will he or won't he commit to Louisville? Everyone will find out on Wednesday afternoon at approximately 3:30 when Michael holds a press conference at Male High School to announce his decision.

ITV learned late Monday evening that defensive back Jimmy Wright from Palm Bay High School may no longer be committed to the Cardinals. However, if this is the case, it is not by choice. Wright told me that he hasn't heard back from the Louisville coaching staff since he told them that he was coming. Wright fears that the coaching staff may have recruited over him. He told me that he plans on calling U of L tomorrow to discuss his previous verbal commitment. Don't be surprised if Jimmy Wright isn't among the list of official commitments announced on Wednesday.

What they are saying!
ITV is visiting with players that have committed to get their thoughts as they prepare to make their decisions official by signing a Letter of Intent to Louisville.

DB Early McCray III
McCray, who is rated by as the 88th top prospect in Georgia, told ITV that he can't wait to get back to the football field.

"I'm really excited and looking forward to it," McCray told ITV on Monday. "I'm a very active and explosive type player, so I am looking forward to getting on the field again."

McCray will sign his LOI during a press conference at his school on Wednesday afternoon.

WR Antwuan Giddens
When asked about what he expects from moving onto playing on the collegiate level, Giddens explained that he believes that it will help him improve, not only as a player, but also as a person. "It will help me to continue to mature in life and increase my chance at being successful in everything that I do."

He also looking forward to helping Louisville football to become a consistant winner. "I want to do all I can to help the team win the league championship and get some rings."

DB Brandon Sharp
Brandon, who was an All-City selection, told me that the coaching staff was surprised when he called on January 28th and informed him that he was accepting their scholarship offer.

While he also considered Vanderbilt and South Florida, Louisville was the program he wanted to play for. "I'm excited that I get to play for the school that I wanted too. I want to help any way possible."

Brandon anticipates arriving in Louisville early and enrolling in summer school.
