Josh Harvey-Clemons, the oft-troubled but incredibly talented safety from Georgia, will reportedly visit for the Louisville spring football game and transfer to the school in May.

Two years ago, Charlie Strong and the Louisville coaching staff put the full court press on five-star safety Josh Harvey-Clemons. They even persuaded him to make an official visit before he ultimately opted to sign with the Georgia Bulldogs. Harvey-Clemons is reportedly going to wind up in Louisville after all. Both of Louisville's subscription sites Inside The Ville and Cardinal Authority reported within minutes of each other that the former Georgia safety, having been dismissed from the team after multiple rules violations, will be in town for Friday night's spring football game and will likely enroll in school in May.

Harvey-Clemons, when he was in the coaching staff's good graces, played the star position in Todd Grantham's 3-4 defense and will likely do the same in Louisville. He'll be required to sit out the 2014 season and will have two years to play beginning in 2015. Harvey-Clemons will would be another boost to the Louisville defense, especially with his familiarity with the system Todd Grantham is bringing with him as defensive coordinator.
