Quietly, Louisville football got some very good news Sunday night, as star cornerback Kei’Trel Clark confirmed he will be suiting up for the Cardinals in 2022.

A preseason All-ACC selection, Clark’s 2021 season was cut short when he suffered a knee injury during the second half of Louisville’s October loss at NC State.

Through the first eight games of the season, Clark had recorded 40 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, three interceptions, and nine pass breakups. He was a Second Team All-ACC selection in 2020, his first season at U of L after transferring in from Liberty.

The defensive backfield is one of the areas where Louisville is going to need to add depth this season, but adding depth doesn’t do a whole lot if you don’t have big time players at the top of the depth chart. The Cards are now confirmed to have a big time player at the top of the depth chart at one cornerback spot next fall.
