Louisville running back LJ Scott announced on Instagram Sunday morning that he will finish his college career somewhere else.
Here was his message:
Three Years Ago God Placed Me Here, The University Of Louisville, To Fulfill A Purpose. To Not Only Touch Lives But To Open My Heart And Allow Mine To Be Touched As Well. To Not Be Good But To Be Great In All Aspects Of Life. And Most Importantly To Not Be Successful But To Be Significant. My Time Here Can't Be Measured In Any Stat, Or Any Accolade. But Rather In The Smiles, Laughs, And Tears Shared With People God Has Blessed Me To Run Into.
The Lessons Learned Here Have Made Me The Man, Friend, Partner, Son, Brother, And Child Of God I Am Today. I Can't Thank Everyone Who Made My Time What It Was Here Enough! Three Years Of Memories I'll Recall For A Lifetime.
This Is Bittersweet, But God Is Calling Me To Fulfill Another Purpose Elsewhere. So To The University Of Louisville, The City of Louisville, The Friends and Fans Of Louisville... Thank You! Thank You For Sharing What Is Yours With Me And My Family For The Past Three Years! We Are Humbled And Honored To Have Called Ourselves Cardinals!
Scott's best game as a Cardinal came in the second week of his freshman season when he rushed for 126 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries in a rout of Murray State. Lingering injuries then kept him from making much more of an impact on that season. After splitting time between running back and fullback as a sophomore, Scott registered carries in just two games as a junior for U of L in 2016.
Best of luck to L.J. wherever he chooses to finish his career.
