Rumblings surfaced last week that a couple of Louisville signees from the 2019 class weren’t expected to qualify and make it for fall camp.
Scott Satterfield confirmed the rumors on Saturday afternoon that two of the higher rated recruits from his first Louisville class didn’t qualify academically and won’t be with the team in 2019.
Ja’Darien Boykin, a four-star defensive end from Jones County, Georgia, chose Louisville over Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Miami and Pittsburgh, among others. He was ranked as the 19th best weak side defensive end in the 2019 class. Boykin apparently had academic issues that kept him from fully qualifying.
Jamel Starks, a three star, athlete, from Decatur, Georgia, was a signing day addition for Satterifled’s staff. He chose Louisville over North Carolina State, Nebraska and West Virginia. I assume Starks issues were also academic in nature.
While previewing fall camp Satterfield confirmed that the 12 other incoming freshmen have arrived and are ready to go.
