Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinal football program officially added a member to their 2016 recruiting class on Monday afternoon. Just a month after verbally committing to UofL, Linwood Foy, a junior college offensive lineman officially signed his letter of intent and is eligible to play this season.

When he committed to Louisville in April, Foy was somewhat under the radar. That has certainly changed over the past few weeks. The 6-foot-5, 295-pound, offensive tackle took visits to Auburn and Missouri after giving a verbal commitment.
Despite being pursued by other program, the Los Angeles native ultimately chose the Cards. Foy is expected to enroll at UofL over the summer.<
