The Brohm era at Louisville has been nothing short of booming. Just a few short hours away from kick-off the undefeated Cardinals look to keep the momentum going but first they will have to go through the No. 10 Fighting Irish at home. Not only could tonight be a program changer for the Cards on the field but also one on the recruiting front.
Louisville is expected to host 75 prospects under the lights tonight on one of the biggest stages it could set. The Cards will host a mix of their commits and top prospects.
Ransom McDermott 3 Star, OT, Nobelsville (IN)
Shaun Boykins 3 Star, WR, North Hardin (KY)
Jathan Hatch 3 Star, S, Biggersville (MS)
Jaiden Spearman 3 Star,S William Amos Hough (NC)
Dylan Messman 3 Star, TE, Saline (MI)
With just two months to go before the early signing period there will also be a few top 2024 prospects the Cards are looking to flip that will be on hand this evening. Could 4 star Notre Dame commit Brauntae Johnson out of Northside in Indiana be taking a look at the Cards?
Either way this could be a huge opportunity for Louisville to stir the pot. Another prospect to keep close watch on is 3 star corner and Michigan Commit Jermiah Lowe. Lowe is out of Fredrick Douglass in Lexington. An extremely dynamic corner with a ton of upside that could help elevate the Louisville defense in the near future.
Joining Lowe is his teammate and 3 star Purdue Commit Demeco Kennedy. Rounding out the 2024s to keep watch on is another rising 3 star athlete from near by JT Haskins out of Bryan Station.
The class of 2025 prospects expected to be on hand tonight are already on the rise and making their presence known. Any of these kids would be instant impact players for the next class on the clock in the Ville.
It is evident that in a short period of time Jeff Brohm is putting Card football on the map and plenty of the nation’s top prospects are taking notice.

It’s never too early to start building relationships on the recruiting front especially at the quarterback position. Rounding off the top prospects to know tonight is 2026 four-star quarterback Nathan Bernhard out of Ashland in Ohio.
Already a towering 6 foot 5 and 210 pounder who was offered by the Cardinals back in August. He is already building a solid list of offers that will only grow from here on on out. He currently is the ranked by 247Sports as the no. 80 overall athlete in his class. He stands as the No.6 at the quarterback position and no. 4 overall to come out of Ohio in 2026.
One thing is for certain tonight as the Cards take the big stage there will be plenty of playmakers closely watching every move. L’s up! Come fly to the Ville!
