I_medium The Pittsburgh Courier says Gerod Holliman could be the steal of the draft.

Louisville's sophomore Gerod "The Ball Hawk" Holliman, 6'0 218, is regarded as one of the finest free safeties to have ever played the college game. He was a 2014 first-team All-American and a Walter Camp selection.  He won the Jim Thorpe Award as the top defensive back in the country and tied an NCAA record with 14 interceptions.  Holliman shows good anticipation with good reactions to the ball in the air.  Has good foot quickness to transition out of his backpedal to all route angles. Good stop-and-go quickness and has a burst to the ball.  Holliman could be the steal of the draft.

Louisville WR Traveon Samuel

The Cardinals' receiving corps is going to have a new look to it this fall, which is why Samuel graduated high school early to make a bid for playing time. Coach Bobby Petrino liked what he saw from the true freshman during the spring, and he said Samuel will definitely help the Cardinals' offense. At 5-foot-7 and 175 pounds, Samuel brings a different dynamic to Louisville. Petrino said the freshman will be utilized in ways that get him the ball in space to take advantage of his quickness and run-after-the-catch ability.

I_medium The U of L women's golf team is off to the NCAA Regionals for a second straight year.
