Louisville football is dealing with its first defection of the offseason, as junior linebacker Keith Brown has told InsideTheVille.com that he plans on finishing his college career elsewhere.
"I just had to find a better situation for myself," Brown said.
Brown, a former U.S. Army All-American, saw significant playing time as a true freshman in 2012 when he recorded 48 total tackles, including a career-high 13 in the Cardinals' overtime win over Cincinnati. He played in just three games as a sophomore in 2013 before a knee injury forced him to redshirt the rest of the season.
Brown struggled to find consistent playing time as a redshirt sophomore in 2014, finishing the season with just 17 total tackles. The same was true this past season, as his playing time rose and fell throughout a season which saw him record no statistics in the Music City Bowl.
Best of luck to Keith going forward.
