As if losing quarterback Jordan Travis to transfer wasn’t bad enough, Thursday also saw Louisville receive decommitments from two of the highest-ranked recruits in the Cards’ already thin 2019 class.
First up was three-star offensive lineman Jamari Williams.
Holy Spirit, I trust my future with you. I’ll learn what you reveal to me from scripture. I’ll go where YOU lead me. Amen pic.twitter.com/culPLHuYvI— SweetFeet (@jamariwilliams3) November 1, 2018
Just hours later, Williams announced his commitment to Arizona.
Also hours later came the news that three-star JUCO tight end Austin Griffin, the No. 11 JUCO player in the country and according to some sites the highest-rated prospect in Louisville’s 2019 class, was also looking elsewhere.
I decommitted from Louisville. I’m so thankful for the staff at UofL for the love they showed me. I feel I made my decision a little to early, and all I ask is that you respect my decision. I will be opening my recruitment back up.— Austin Griffin (@austgriff) November 1, 2018
According to the 247 Sports composite rankings, Louisville’s 2019 class now ranks as the 69th best in the country. That’s one spot below Miami of Ohio, and one spot ahead of Maryland.
