Nick Dawson, the four-star linebacker whom many consider to be the crown jewel of Charlie Strong's recruiting class of 2012, was the first Louisville commitment to fax in his signed letter of intent on national signing day.
Dawson had said earlier this week that he'd wanted wanted to be the first "official" member of the class, and he backed that up by faxing his LOI just after 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The only semi-surprise addition of the day thus far has been the signing of Lamar Atkins, a linebacker out of Miami Norland. Atkins is the brother of Louisville signee Keith Brown, and had previously been committed to Illinois with Brown.
Nearing the noon hour, Louisville's recruiting class currently sits at 24 members. That number includes Florida transfers Gerald Christian and Robert Clark.
Here are the guys who are signed, sealed and delivered as of this moment:
Abraham "Nach" Garcia
James Burgess Jr.
Disappointed no one's had any other crazy hairdos or dropped a "CardsFan922" in an official quote. Still plenty of time, fellas.
