Big news for the Louisville defense came on Wednesday when the NCAA declared that cornerback Kei’Trel Clark, a Liberty transfer, is eligible to compete immediately in 2020.
Clark immediately shared the news with fans on Twitter.
“We are thankful to the NCAA for this decision and to Liberty for supporting this process,” Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said in a statement. “We’re excited for Kei’Trel and the opportunity he’s going to have to be able to play immediately. He’s a terrific young man and has made an immediate impact in our secondary in fall camp.”
Clark, who will be a sophomore in 2020, played in all 13 games at Liberty last season and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining. As a freshman, he started seven games at cornerback and finished with 38 tackles and six pass breakups.
Clark, who has drawn rave reviews from his new coaches throughout fall camp, figures to compete for a starting spot and add depth at a position where Louisville is in desperate need.
