Louisville football recruiting: Sheldrick Redwine commits to Louisville

New, 74 comments

Louisville has sought to finish up its recruiting class by finding a couple of defensive backs and a running back and it took a big step toward accomplishing that by getting a commitment from Miami cornerback Sheldrick Redwine.

Louisville is closing in on one of its best recruiting classes in school history and by signing day, the defensive backs could be the backbone of the class. That group was bolstered by the late night commitment of Miami Killian High School cornerback Sheldrick Redwine.

Redwine (6'1, 183) is a composite three-star rated prospect and the # 46 cornerback in the country according to 247 Sports. Redwine listed offers from Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, and West Virginia as well. He was a high school teammate of current Louisville freshman defensive back Trumaine Washington.

Defensive back, wide receiver, and offensive line were the three biggest needs in the class of 2015. With Redwine joining commitments from Khane Pass, Jaire Alexander (who is already enrolled), Dee Smith, and TJ Jallow, Louisville appears to have addressed that position as well as could be hoped for. Additionally, Louisville is still very much in the mix for Jalen Julius (and his running back friend Dexter Williams). You can view Redwine's highlights below.

With the losses of Charles Gaines, Gerod Holliman, Terell Floyd, and still possibly James Sample, Louisville's 2015 class and the transfers of Josh Harvey-Clemons and Shaw Wiggins from Georgia will ensure that the secondary will remain a strength of the Louisville defense for years to come. Redwine's commitment and a small handful of really talented targets still remaining gives Louisville a chance to still land a top 25 recruiting class.
