Bobby Petrino and his staff added their 14th commitment from the 2018 class. Javian Hawkins, a three-star running back from Titusville, Florida, announced his commitment to UofL on Twitter.

Hawkins chose Louisville over Missouri, Syracuse, Temple, Central Florida, Boston College and Cincinnati, among others.
The Florida native is ranked as the 21st best running back in the 2018 class, but he’s versatlie and could play a different position at the collegiate level. Hawkins is a smaller back at 5-foot-9, 185-pounds, but he’s one of the faster prospects in the state of Florida.
Hawkins is the first running back to commit to the Cards in 2018. He’s one of nine prospects to commit to Louisville from the Sunshine state.
