Juniors Ross Trail And Justin Crawford Decommit From Louisville

Jamie Rhodes-US PRESSWIRE

The two members of the 2015 class who verbaled to Louisville when Charlie Strong was still the head coach say they are no longer committed to play for the Cardinals.

Quarterback Ross Trail and running back Justin Crawford both say they are still considering U of L, but that they are now exploring other options.

"Ross is still interested in Louisville, but he has a lot of other interests from other schools," Rusty Trail said. "He just felt better about looking around without being committed to them."

Trail, who has a Memphis offer, still plans to visit a U of L junior day in April. His dad said his son also plans to visit Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina and Strong's new school, Texas (for the Longhorns' spring game). Rusty Trail said former U of L offensive coordinator Shawn Watson (now at Texas), who was Ross' primary recruiter, has remained in contact.

Crawford, a high three-star running back from Columbus, Ga., said he decommitted because he was unsure whether his scholarship offer to U of L would remain intact, "so I did what I though was best and just chose to wait my options out."

Crawford said, he has been in touch with U of L's new coaches, who have told him "they would love for me to still become a Cardinal." He said U of L is in his top three and is remains a place "I would love to attend and perform at."

It's a little bit surprising considering how highly Trail's father spoke of Petrino after the hiring, but I suppose it's understandable, especially since Louisville is bringing in a QB transfer from Penn State and in the mix for another from USC. As for Crawford, I still think he's a special talent and would love to see him recommit.
