Louisville football’s apparent quest to get an entire class worth of commitments in one 48-hour span continued on Monday with a pledge from three-star athlete Jarek Campbell out of Murfreesboro, TN.

Campbell has spent most of his high school career as a successful wide receiver, but has recently seen his recruitment blossom after making the move to safety. He picked Louisville over offers from Tennessee, Kentucky and Cincinnati, among others.

“(Louisville was) probably the most interested school in me and I was just ready to commit and get it over with,” Campbell told Rivals. “I like them a lot and I have a good relationship with Coach Sirmon and it just felt like home for me.

"Coach Sirmon comes around a lot when he's allowed to be out recruiting and that shows he cares about you and he really wants to coach you. He's a guy who isn't going to sugarcoat things, he's going to coach you hard but treat you like family at the same time. At the camp working with him and the defensive backs coaches I felt really comfortable. They like me, I like them a lot and I think they're good coaches."

Campbell added that he does not plan on taking any future visits to any other schools. His commitment comes a day after Louisville landed pledges from Dejmi Dumervil Jean, Antar Thompson and Jared Goldwire.
