Class of 2023 three-star running back Kaden Moorman has announced his commitment to the University of Louisville football program.
The 5-foot-11, 210-pound prospect out of Franklin County High School in Frankfort, Kentucky is a top 10 recruit in the state according to both 247Sports and Rivals. UofL Head Coach Jeff Brohm now holds commitments from three of Kentucky’s top 10 recruits for the Class of 2023, the other two being three-star defensive linemen Micah Carter and Saadiq Clements.
Kaden Moorman made his big announcement on Friday afternoon via Twitter.
After previously committing to Mark Stoops and the University of Kentucky in late 2021, Moorman ultimately decided to reopen his recruitment on October 21, 2022 and eventually found a home at the University of Louisville. He also held offers from Wisconsin and Toledo.
During his junior season at Franklin County High School, Kaden Moorman ran for 1,447 yards and 27 touchdowns on just 177 carries while adding 18 receptions for 211 yards and two touchdowns.
Despite dealing with injuries during his senior year, Moorman still averaged nearly eight yards per carry, combined for over 100 total yards (rushing and receiving) in five games, finished with 15 total touchdowns on the season, and helped lead his team to the 2022 KHSAA Class 4A semifinals.
In addition, the Franklin County star put together some incredible highlights during his senior season, which showcase his strength and agility as well as the considerable threat he poses in the passing game.
Kaden Moorman will join redshirt junior Jawhar Jordan, sophomore Maurice Turner, Wisconsin transfer and senior Isaac Guerendo, and fellow Class of 2023 recruit Keyjuan Brown as one of the five scholarship running backs on UofL’s roster for the upcoming season.
With Tiyon Evans opting to enter the 2023 NFL Draft and both Jalen Mitchell and Trevion Cooley hitting the transfer portal in November 2022, Jeff Brohm and his staff seem to have done an excellent job replacing some of the talent they lost from last year’s team while also adding weapons that better fit his offensive scheme as the new head coach at UofL.
