Charlie Strong added another piece to his 2013 recruiting puzzle as three-star linebacker Keith Kelsey committed to Louisville this morning. Kelsey, a native of Gainesville, chose the Cards over Kentucky and South Florida, and during his commitment put on a UK hat only to say “psych, I’m going to Louisville.”
I’m sure Big Blue Nation will be cool with that.
The Kelsey family has a longstanding relationship with Charlie Strong has his dad, Keith Kelsey, Sr played for Strong at Florida during the mid-1990s. The younger Kelsey is 6-1, 220-lbs and according to several recruiting analysts, will challenge for time immediately. Louisville does return a nice group of linebackers so if he is as good as people say, this is a very solid addition. The Cards now have 14 commitments in the 2013 class, with a few recruits still out there.
Signing Day is just around the corner. It will be interesting to see how the Cards finish up.
