The Louisville Cardinal football program has been riding some serious momentum on the recruiting trail in recent weeks.
Earlier this week 2-star athlete Tutu Atwell became 17th commitment from the 2018 class. Atwell announced his decision through his Twitter account.

The 5-foot-8, 155-pound, Miami native’s other notable offers include Illinois, FAU, FIU, Georgia State, Marshall and South Florida, among others. He had previously been committed to FAU, but reopened his recruitment earlier this summer.
Atwell plays quarterback for Miami Northwestern High School, but is listed as an athlete by most recruiting services.
Miami Northwestern happens to be the same school that produced Teddy Bridgewater and other former Louisville stars. Teddy seems happy with Atwell’s commitment.
