The folks at 247Sports.com broke the news on Tuesday afternoon that junior college All American running back Jovon Robinson will take an official visit to Louisville today. Robinson previously signed with Auburn out of high school, but was ruled ineligible in the fall of 2012. He’s since enrolled at Georgia Military College and is one of the top available running back prospects in the country.
Apparently, Robinson will be bringing one of his JUCO teammates with him to Louisville on Wednesday. Dual threat quarterback Pat Thomas Tweeted that he’ll be joining Robinson on the Louisville visit.
Thomas isn’t as highly touted as Robinson, but the Milledgeville, GA., native has strong ties to the Louisville program. He was previously committed to UAB when Louisville offensive coordinator Garrick McGee was the head coach in Birmingham.
Thomas’ 247Sports profile doesn’t show that he holds an offer from the Cardinal program, but you’ve got to think he’d likely commit if he picked up one. UAB, South Alabama and Troy are the only other schools in the mix.
The QB position wasn’t thought to be a serious need for Louisville, considering they have three on the roster and incoming freshman Reggie Bonnafon. However, if Petrino and McGee feel that Thomas is worth pursuing, I suggest we trust their judgment.
