Louisville Targeting George Rushing’s Teammate, Trevon Lee

Trevon LeeThe University of Louisville football program has been picking up a plethora of commitments lately.  One in particular could turn out to be a valuable recruiting tool for Louisville. 

George Rushing, a 3-Star Wide Receiver out of Cardinal Gibbons High School in Ft. Lauderdale committed to Louisville last Friday.  Rushing is considered to be one of the Top 100 Wide Receivers in the country with his stock rising.  While he is very valuable to his current team as well as him future, he is not the only wide receiving prospect on Cardinal Gibbons High roster that the Cards were targeting.

Trevon Lee, also a 3-Star, is currently considered a Top 50 Wide Receiver in the country.  Lee picked up an offer from the Cards March 7th.  The recruitment of Trevon has been heavy for many, but also fairly quiet.  While Lee holds offers from what seems like dozens of programs like Auburn, Boston College, Cal, Clemson, South Carolina, USC, West Virginia and Wisconsin just to name a few, there appears to be no clear leaders.   In 2012 Trevon recorded 35 catches for 704 yards and 11 touchdowns.  Let’s hope Lee’s teammate George Rushing can be very convincing.
