Jamie Rhodes-US PRESSWIRE
Seminole Ridge (Fla.) defensive tackle Kyle Shortridge has officially signed on to play football for the Louisville Cardinals.
Shortridge was originally committed to Purdue, but reopened his recruitment on Nov. 25 following the firing of coach Danny Hope. He visited U of L on the weekend of Dec. 8 and committed to Charlie Strong and company shortly after.
Standing 6'4, 275-pounds, Shortridge made a name for himself in the state of Florida with his physical play. Adding to that reputation is the fact that the intensity of U of L's practices is reportedly one of the major reasons he has chosen to become a Cardinal.
Ranked as the 44th best DT in the class of 2013 by Rivals, Shortridge was a hot commodity on the recruiting trail, boasting offers from the likes of Nebraska, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Michigan State and nearly 30 more.
Shortridge was the second defensive tackle to commit to Louisville following the news of U of L's joining the ACC, and the eighth member of Charlie Strong's recruiting class of 2013.
