Louisville defensive coordinator Bryan Brown has added an experienced cornerback that could very well be able to contribute in the 2020 season.

Liberty transfer Kei’Trel Clark has announced that he’ll finish his collegiate career at Louisville.

As a true freshman at Liberty, Clark finished with 38 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and a block kick, while eventually earning the starting nod at cornerback.

Despite a successful debut season at Liberty, Clark decided to transfer due to the “cultural incompetent within multiple level of leadership” at the university that did not “line up with my code of ethics”.

“I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal and I will no longer be attending Liberty University,” Clark announced in June. “This decision has been well thought out and prayed on. This decision is simply bigger than football or the program. The program, staff, and teammates were a complete blessing to my life. Over this year I have developed relationships that I will forever cherish and bonds that will not be broken.”

Clark will have to sit out the 2020 season, but he will likely apply for a waiver. The NCAA is always tough to predict, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Clark gets the waiver due to what allegedly went on at Liberty. He’s not the only player to transfer from the program citing issues surrounding racial insensitivity.

Reports recently surfaced that Clark would be transferring to West Virginia, but he’s obviously had a change of heart.
