Cards Land First 2015 Pledge

Olive Branch High School defensive back T.J. Jallow is the first official member of the 2015 class.

Bobby Petrino and his staff landed their first commit for the 2015 recruiting class last night right before the start of the annual spring game. Olive Branch High School defensive back TJ Jallow committed to the staff after being offered in the morning. Jallow is billed as a big corner with track speed and that speed seems to be legit as some of his twitter followers asked him if he was coming to UofL on a track scholarship. Jallow has yet to be ranked/evaluated by any of the national recruiting sites but he has received some interest from a couple of SEC schools.

Jallow is a former teammate of former commit Ross Trail, who transferred back to his previous school back in January. Trail is still considering the Cards and attended the spring game last night. The backup quarterbacks struggled just as much as the defensive backs did last night, so I would imagine that Trail will be a focus of the staffs recruiting efforts this cycle. I would expect the staff to pick up the recruiting efforts now that spring practices are over. After a solid month of evaluating the team, they should now know where they need to focus.
