A duo of 2024 prospects include Louisville football in their Top 10 schools
In the past week, Louisville football fans have seen a red Cardinal pop up on two different graphics across the Twitter-sphere. The first one came on Sunday, February 19th, when three-star offensive lineman Malachi Toliver released his top 10 schools, which included the Louisville Cardinals.

Toliver is 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds with the ability to move bodies. His name is not entirely foreign as he has been tied to the program for months at this point. He first received an offer from the University of Louisville back in April 2022, and was also seen retweeting a lot of tweets about the Louisville football program amidst the internet whirlwind that surrounded the coaching change in December.
As far as his ties to Louisville, they go way beyond just football. He was originally born in Louisville, Kentucky and even still has family living here in town. Now, he is a resident of Cartersville, Georgia, but plenty of people would love to see him don the right red and white colors, as he also holds a scholarship offer from the University of Georgia.
Toliver could be the third offensive lineman to commit to Louisville in the past two recruiting cycles, joining fellow Georgia native Madden Sanker and Indiana native Luke Burgess.
The other Class of 2024 prospect that included the University of Louisville in their Top 10 is three-star athlete Tysean Griffin out of Chicago, Illinois, who announced it yesterday afternoon.

Jeff Brohm is an ideal coach to play for if you are an offensive athlete. He has proven that with how he used Rondale Moore in his offense at Purdue. He finished his career as a Boilermaker with 1,915 yards, 14 receiving touchdowns, 3 rushing touchdowns, and 813 yards on kickoff returns.
Griffin is a little bit taller, standing at 5-foot-11, than Moore, who is 5-foot-7, but Griffin could be used in a very similar way if he decides to commit to the Cardinals. Last season at Morgan Park High School, he recorded 433 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, 135 receiving yards, two receiving touchdowns, and 74 yards returned off kickoffs.
He could be a lethal weapon if he decides to join Jeff Brohm’s offense and could go on to the NFL, just like Rondale Moore did.
