Louisville’s First Round NFL Draft Presence Quickly Pays Off On Recruiting Trail

It didn’t take long for the Louisville Football program’s first round presence in the 2020 NFL Draft to payoff on the recruiting trail.

Less than 48 hours after former Louisville offensive lineman Mekhi Becton heard his name called with the 11th overall pick, Cardinal offensive line coach Dwayne Ledford landed a commitment from the 2021 class.

Zen Michalski, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound, offensive tackle, from across the river in Floyds Knobs gave Louisville a verbal commitment on Saturday afternoon.

Michalski’s commitment comes less than two months after he picked up a scholarship offer from Scott Satterfield’s staff.

The Southern Indiana native is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports.

Michalski chose the Cards over offers from Boston College, Indiana, Michigan State, Kansas, Kansas State, Syracuse, and Duke, among others.

Louisville now has a total of four commitments from the 2021 class.
