Ryan White, a 4-star cornerback at Trinity High School has decommitted from Louisville and given a verbal pledge to the Vanderbilt Commodores, according to Barton Simmons of the 247 Sports network. White, a 5-foot-9 180-pound cornerback verbally committed to Louisville on February 22nd after attending “Junior Day” at the UofL campus. White is rated as the 15th best cornerback in the country.
It has been previously been reported here at TheCardinalConnect.com that White had be wavering from his commitment to the Louisville program. He committed to the Cardinals shortly after picking up offers from Arkansas and Michigan. Surprisingly, Kevin Franklin and the Vanderbilt Commodores program got involved with White after his commitment to Louisville and obviously made quite the impression. Coach Franklin is currently working on the best recruiting class in Vanderbilt football history.
This is definitely not the news Louisville fans want to hear. Especially just four days following Trinity defensive end Jason Hatcher’s commitment to USC. James Quick is now the only one of the “Trinity big three” left on the board for the Charlie Strong.
Fortunately it’s not all bad news for the Louisville football program tonight. CJ Cooper, a 3-star wide receiver from Raleigh, N.C., has verbally committed to Louisville. More on Cooper’s commitment coming soon.
