For whatever reason, I'm having a harder time getting excited for this weekend's football game than I have for any in recent memory. Still, our enthusiasm, or lack thereof, doesn't change the fact that a number of high-profile football and basketball recruits will be in attendance, making a good showing from both the team and the fans that much more important.
Courtesy of Jody Demling, here are some of the guys who will be on campus this weekend:
- Mike Privott (Louisville commit)
- Timothy Smith (Top 50 receiver out of Chesapeake, Va.)
- Julius Forte (Rivals.com's No. 44 defensive end)
- Marcus McNeal (Speedy Fla. receiver down to U of L, Ole Miss and West Virginia)
- Mywan Jackson (Gifted Fla. athlete with offers from Michigan, Auburn and West Virginia, among others)
- Petey Smith (Four-star linebacker with offers from Tennessee, Florida, Alabama and Auburn, among others)
- Peyton Siva (Louisville commit)
- Aaron Dotson (Four-star guard out of Seattle who is close with Siva as well as class of 2010 and 2011 studs Josh Smith and Tony Wroten)
Go Cards. Go impressing wide-eyed teenagers.
