Louisville Lands Second Class Of 2015 Commitment

Louisville received its second commitment from a member of the class of 2015 when St. Paul's Episcopal (Huntsville, Ala.) offensive lineman/defensive end Troy Thingstad pledged his allegiance to the Cards Tuesday night.

Thingstad, a three-star prospect, also had early scholarship offers from South Carolina, Kentucky and Southern Miss, among others. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound rising senior has played mostly defensive end in high school, but has been told by the staff at U of L that he'll get a look on both sides of the ball, although most scouting services project him as an offensive lineman.

Thingstad attended Louisville's junior day in April, and said that it "was amazing." He was particularly impressed by new/old head coach Bobby Petrino.

"The program that coach (Bobby) Petrino ran amazed me, and I was thrilled by it," Thingstad told AL.com. "I was excited when I was there. The first time I got up there I knew it was my home, but I just needed to make sure. The overall program and school is amazing to me."

Thingstad make ya go "yeah!"

Sometimes I just like to completely ruin a post at the very end. It's cathartic. Anyway, you can check out Thingstad's highlight reel on Hudl.
