Found January 06, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
Two of Charlie Strong’s commitments from the 2013 class will enroll early and start school this week. Finessee Middleton, a 6-foot-1 245-pound defensive end from Gadsden, AL., and Brett Nelson, a 6-foot-4 junior college quarterback from La Canada, CA., are in Louisville and will start classes tomorrow. Since becoming the coach at Louisville, Charlie Strong has had many recruits enroll a semester early and participate in spring practice. The players that have been fortunate enough to arrive early have greatly benefitted from the extra time to get acclimated. Brett Nelson seems to be going through culture shock.
