Though we'd all love for him to stick around for one (or 25) more year(s), the biggest question surrounding Louisville football after this season is more than likely going to be which quarterback is going to replace Teddy Bridgewater and lead the Cardinals into the first year of the ACC era.
Though Charlie Strong and Shawn Watson already have plenty of options at the position (Brett Nelson, Will Gardner, Kyle Bolin, Reggie Bonnafon and the field), having too many talented quarterbacks is never an unenviable problem. With that in mind, Louisville fans should be happy to learn that the Cards are reportedly in the mix to land a pair of new signal callers who would be eligible to take the field in the fall of 2014.
First up is Wes Lunt, the former four-star recruit who chose to transfer from Oklahoma State last week. According to ESPN's Joe Schad, the five schools in the mix to land Lunt are Louisville, Tennessee, Illinois, Vanderbilt and Southern Miss.
The No. 7 quarterback in the class of 2012, Lunt began last season as Oklahoma State's starting quarterback as a freshman. Injuries to his leg and head sidelined him for part of the season, and he wound up throwing for 1,108 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions.
In more standard recruiting news, Louisville appears to be the new front-runner for another elite QB in the class of 2014.
I concur. RT @kylepuma: U of L may be getting a new QB commit soon….— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) May 13, 2013
That QB is Alin Edouard, who is currently committed to Miami but confirmed on Monday that his commitment is not strong. Rated as the No. 16 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2014 by Rivals, Edouard is from Hialeah, Fla., the same city where current Cardinal commit Michael Johnson hails from. Edouard also boasts scholarship offers from Penn State, Tennessee, Nebraska and Ole Miss, among others.
Let's see, a quarterback from Florida who might be flipping his commitment from Miami to Louisville. When...has that...happened before....
Could be an interesting week.
