Louisville Recruit Says Rumors Of De-Commitment Aren’t True


Some media members in the Tampa area are speculating that Louisville commit Richard Benjamin may switch his commitment to South Florida. Benjamin, 3-star cornerback/wide receiver from Tampa, FL., committed to Louisville on Dec. 16th while on an official visit. He will take a visit to his hometown school on Friday, but says on Twitter that the rumors of him possibly de-committing are not true.

Benjamin is one of the higher rated prospects currently committed to Louisville. He chose the Cards over Texas A&M and West Virginia. I don’t think there is too much to be concerned about. As I mentioned yesterday, it’s very common for guys to continue taking visits despite being firm on their commitment. With that said, new USF coach Willie Taggart is one helluva recruiter.

  1. You are doing a very good job of keeping up with recruiting news. Keep of the good work and see if you can find out anymore about Taj Williams out of Tallahassee and something about Brissett and Saunders coming from Florida.

  2. I agree, great job on keeping up on all the news! I’m just hoping that Hatcher flips and decides to ball at home…..

  3. Any possibility or news on Trinity star Hatcher decommiting from USC going to U of L ?
    What a great combination ……..Hatcher and Benjamin …….
