Louisville football recruiting: Kelby Johnson commits

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Bobby Petrino got his first offensive lineman recruit to commit today in ASA college tackle Kelby Johnson.

Finding offensive line depth has been one of the focal points of Bobby Petrino's new Louisville coaching staff. With the decommitments of Kavaris Harkless and Lukayus McNeil, the urgency only increased. Today, the Cardinals coaching received good news as junior college offensive lineman Kelby Johnson committed to Louisville. Johnson joins Ohio offensive lineman Danny Burns as the only current Louisville offensive line commitments.

Johnson (6'8, 315) is a consensus three-star recruit out of ASA (NY) College. He will have two years of eligibility to play for the Cardinals. Johnson was rated a three-star recruit out of DeMatha High School in Maryland in the class of 2011. He originally signed with Virginia before transferring to ASA in 2012. Despite not being able to participate in spring practice, there's no reason a player of Johnson's size won't be able to come in the summer and push for playing time at right tackle, a position that was never truly settled throughout the 2013 season.

Johnson also listed offers from Ole Miss, Purdue, Kansas, and East Carolina.
