An updated Louisville football roster was published at GoCards.com earlier this afternoon. There aren’t a whole lot of surprises on the updated roster, but here are a few takeaways.
- I reported last month that running back Jeremy Wright was not expected to be back for his senior season. There still hasn’t’ been an official release about Wright, but he is no longer on the Louisville roster. From what I’ve been told, he will attempt to enter the NFL draft.
- Zeke Pike was no longer with the team towards the end of the season and was removed from the roster, but has since been reinstated.
- One notable name among the list of walk-ons is linebacker Leroy Kelson. He was at one time a highly regarded prospect in Palm Beach Gardens, FL., in 2011, but never signed with a school. Kelson is the half-brother of 2013 Louisville signee Donel Elam.
- It could be a mistake, but tight end Chris White and defense back Jordan Paschal are no longer listed on the roster.
- Florida transfer Willie Bailey was welcomed with the 2013 recruiting class and had enrolled in school for the spring semester, but is no longer on the roster. There has been some talk that he is no longer with the program.
- Wide receiver Kai Dominguez has apparently changed his name to Kai De La Cruz.
