Bobby Petrino got another addition to the 2014 football class today.  Juco defensive lineman Pio Vatuvei from Patterson California sent the University of Louisville his signed letter this evening confirming his pledge to play.  Pio was a 4* recruit out of high school and had originally signed to play for the University of Washington. After playing nine games in 2012, he was dismissed because of a team rules violation.  Last season he played at San Mateo College in California and racked up 35 tackles.  He will be an immediate impact player for the Cards in their transition to a  3-4 scheme, that defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will institute.  This is a great pickup for Coach Petrino and the Cards.
