Will Louisville's Pierce Clarkson See The Field in 2024?

The Louisville Cardinals rode with transfer quarterback Jack Plummer all season long last year, and incoming 4-star freshman Pierce Clarkson only appeared in one game (Murray State).

Jeff Brohm brought in transfer quarterback Tyler Shough from Texas Tech to take over quarterback duties for 2024. Clarkson will likely either be 2nd or 3rd string under possibly Brady Allen who has made a name for himself in the camps the past 2 years at Louisville.

Shough has been known to have injury issues in his time at Orgeon and Texas Tech, and if that remains true at Louisville then Clarkson could have his shot at getting real minutes in 2024. However, he could not even be the true 2nd string QB, as Brady could take that spot away from him.

Clarkson was apart of Louisville's top 30 2023 recruiting class, and was the first big time recruit to sign with that class. It would be a shame if he did not pan out at Louisville, and would hate to see him transfer and prosper at another school.

Hopefully Clarkson can get some playing time in 2024, but it is ultimately all up to Jeff Brohm and what is best for Louisville football in 2024.
