Louisville Football coach Scott Satterfield is overseeing his first signing day at Louisville and he has already flipped a player from another Power Five school. Dorian Jones had been committed to Indiana since June but decided to flip to the Cards after taking an official visit this past weekend. Jones played his senior season at American Heritage high school in Florida and was named the 5A-1A Defensive player of the year by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He finished his senior season with 122 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, and 9 sacks.

The new staff has repeatedly said that linebacker was a position that they needed to address in this class and they landed one of the best guys in south Florida within a few weeks of getting here. The staff offered him in May for App State and that relationship continued when they got here to Louisville. Coach Satt has pointed out that the relationships are what matters and it seems like he was correct.
