Louisville’s 2020 football recruiting class got a big addition tonight when Josh Griffis flipped from FSU to Louisville. Griffis has been a long time target for the staff and they continued to recruit him throughout the summer and fall after he committed to FSU in the spring. Louisville needs help up front on the defensive side of the ball and Griffis is ranked as the 24th best weakside defensive end in the country per 247’s composite. He is a three star prospect that is the third highest rated prospect in Louisville’s class as of this posting.
Scott Satterfield joined Bryan Brown, Cort Dennison, and Mark Ivey for an in home visit this week with Griffis. Satterfield made the trip on the same day he was due in Charlotte to accept his coach of the year award. I’d imagine that helped his case. Griffis has also spent the last month or so tweeting and retweeting a ton of UofL edits and other UofL related tweets. It was obvious that he was intrigued with the program after his official visit last month.
Louisville has four spots left in the class with a handful of guys that they are putting a lot of focus on. Greedy Vance is another player that the staff feels very good about and he might finish out the secondary in this class. They are also looking to add an inside linebacker, outside linebacker, and either an offensive lineman or possibly another defensive end.
