These three players could be next for Louisville football.

After addressing depth concerns in his first class as Louisville football’s head coach, Scott Satterfield put any concerns over his recruiting abilities to rest. The vibe around the 2021 cycle was that the staff would land more high-caliber prospects that would project as high-upside players at the next level.

However, the Cardinals have absolutely shattered expectations on the recruiting trail. Currently sitting as the 22nd-best class nationally (247Sports), Louisville has 22 commits and will be adding two more.

A trio of hybrid linebackers/defensive backs highlight the class in Benjamin Perry, Jaraye Williams, and Bralyn Oliver. Versatility has been the emphasis from defensive coordinator Bryan Brown, and the two fit the bill.

Running back Trevion Cooley will look to be the next Cardinal great at running back, while defensive end Victoine Brown will bring much-needed pass rushing. Ahmari Huggins-Bruce and Demetrius Cannon will replenish the wide receiver core; on top of that, the staff has brought in a slew of recruits in the trenches and other skill positions, while getting a signal-caller in the fold as well.

Overall, they have addressed every single need with not only depth, but extreme talent. Multiple members of ‘FlyVille21’ project as standouts at the collegiate level.
