These players have committed to Louisville football’s 2023 recruiting class

What a difference a year can make.

After Louisville football failed to crack 247Sports’ Top 50 with its 2022 recruiting class, Scott Satterfield and the Cardinals’ 2023 haul stands among the top 15 in the country as of June 17.

This drastic jump follows a 6-7 finish to the 2021 season, which ended with losses to rival Kentucky and Air Force in the Servpro First Responder Bowl.

U of L got the ball rolling with its 2023 class four days before its bowl appearance. Adonijah Green, a four-star edge defender from Ellenwood, Georgia, was the first rising senior to commit to the Cardinals on Christmas Eve. Three more prospects, including four-star quarterback Pierce Clarkson, followed suit with commitments during the month of January.

Most recently, Louisville received a commitment from Luke Burgess, a three-star offensive lineman from New Palestine, Indiana, on June 26.
