#31 Gregory Desrosiers

Class: Freshman

Ht/Wt: 5-11/186

Position: Running Back

Hometown: Belmont, MA

Twitter: @Gregory__3D

Thoughts: The Cards picked up Desrosiers last season as a walk on out of Belmont (suck it Belmont Stakes) High School in Belmont, Mass (sorry, wrong Belmont). The running back speedster was looking for a landing spot where he could not only flash the jets between the hashes but also between the lane lines on the track as well. Satt and Company agreed to let him do that and Desrosiers became a Cardinal.

While I can’t say I envisioned seeing him do much in 2021 Greg got a couple mentions in the spring for his performance on the field and I wouldn’t be stunned if we actually see him get some reps on special teams as soon as this year. While the RB room is stacked up like a Jenga tournament Greg’s speed may be tough to keep off the field if they can find the right spots for him here and there. Even if we don’t see a ton of him in 2021 he’s someone to keep in the back of your mind the next few years.

#31 Zach Edwards

Class: RS Freshman

Ht/Wt: 6-3/265

Position: Defensive Line

Hometown: Starkville, MS

Twitter: @ze9023

Thoughts: Edwards has been in the program for a few years now and really started to show out last year seeing action in all eleven contests on defense and special teams. While currently sitting on the three deep at defensive end I think Edwards has a shot to get some reps again this year but likely a solid candidate to crack the rotation at end in 2022. While Puryear and Peterson battle it out we all know Tabarius only has one season left so Edwards could be in a good spot to be in a heavy rotation at the edge if he continues to develop. He’s aggressive, and showed us in high school he’s not afraid to lay some hits, but I’m still looking for him to take that next step at this level. As the defense improves some of these younger guys will find it hard to break in as quickly as they would have in seasons past but that’s good news for Coach Brown and for Louisville.

Welp, I’m sold. If you can’t trust Zach Edwards who can you trust?
