Louisville Football Landed Three Defensive Linemen On Sunday

Chris Humphrey

Saying the University of Louisville Football program had a nice weekend on the recruiting trail would be a massive understatement.

On Saturday Bobby Petrino and his staff reeled in a verbal commitment from Jordan Travis, one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2018 class. Sunday was an even better day with a total of three defensive linemen announcing their commitment to UofL.

The first commitment on Sunday came from Dejmi Dumervil, the nephew of former Louisville legend Elvis Dumervil. The younger Dumervil is a 6-foot-4, 367-pound, defensive tackle from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He is a three-star prospect and chose Louisville over offers from Michigan, Oregon, Michigan State, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Syracuse, Boston College, Kentucky, Illinois and Purdue.

The second commitment of the day came from junior college defensive tackle Antar Thompson. The St. Louis native attends Highland Community College in Kansas. Thompson was originally a member of the 2013 class, but took some time off from football before taking the JUCO route. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound, tackle is rated as a three-star prospect, but he has an impressive list of offers. Thompson chose the Cards over Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado and Florida State.

6-foot-7, 280-pound, defensive tackle Jared Goldwire was the final commitment for the Cards on Sunday. Goldwire is from Kent, Washington, originally and attends Fort Scott Community College in Kansas. He is a three-star prospect and chose the Cards over Oklahoma and Miami, but has multiple other offers.

Bobby Petrino and his staff now have ten commitments from the 2018 class.
