Of all the positions expected to be easy for Louisville and Bobby Petrino's new staff to easily recruit, I don't think anyone thought one would be safety. However, Louisville landed a solid set of safeties in 2015 in Dee Smith and Khane Pass and now for 2016 added a commitment from Rivals 250 safety Jaquelle Green to an already talented group of defensive back commitments for 2016.
Green is the latest in what is becoming a rather long list of Alabama and Mississippi prospects to opt for the Cardinals over other Power 5 offers. 247Sports lists him as a composite three-star prospect (Scout also lists him as a three-star safety while ESPN and Rivals both have him a four-star player). His recruiting profiles on the various services list him as having received offers from SEC powers Ole Miss, LSU, and Alabama. He was also a big target for the staff at Mississippi State.
While there's still a long way before now and signing day, this is still a positive for Louisville. Adding Green's commitment to those of cornerbacks Baylen Buchanan and Rodjay Burns as well as safeties Lamarques Thomas and Chris Taylor-Yamanoha (who lists as a WR but is most likely a defensive back in college) gives Louisville plenty of defensive back talent for the foreseeable future.
