James Hearns Is On Campus

Jamie Rhodes-US PRESSWIRE

The last member of Louisville's 2013 recruiting class is finally on campus and ready to go for fall camp.

Four-star linebacker James Hearns, who signed with Louisville in June after originally being committed to Florida, confirmed on Twitter earlier today that he is officially at U of L and set to go for the fall semester.

Hearns, the No. 197 overall player in the class according to Rivals, was originally headed to Gainesville, but waited to become eligible before signing with any school. That eligibility didn't come until June, and Hearns wound up signing with a U of L program that he said he'd fallen in love with. He also had scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida State. LSU, Georgia, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

The addition of Hearns would be an enormous deal on its own, but with rumors of an injury to starting linebacker Keith Brown still circulating, added depth at the position has become even more paramount.

Here's Hearns in action as a senior in high school:
