The Louisville Cardinal football program looks to build on their history of outstanding quarterbacks in the coming seasons. The Cards are set at the starting position with Georgia native Evan Conley joining upperclassmen Malik Cunningham and Jawon Pass on the Louisville roster. But what’s in the Cards? New coach Scott Satterfield wants to have 5 scholarship quarterbacks, so the Cards have landed commitments from two 2020 recruits.
Tee Webb is a 3-star pro-style QB from Cartersville, Georgia. Some of you may recognize the school from a few seasons ago as the alma mater of current Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Webb took the reigns from Lawrence and passed for 35 touchdowns through the air and 4 on the ground. The Cards won the services of Webb over Miami, Kansas, Michigan State, Kansas State and Syracuse.
The other commit is Arizona 4-star and #5 dual-threat quarterback Chubba Purdy. An amazing player with a great name, Purdy shows great arm strength and accuracy as well as an ability to make plays with his legs. Purdy passed for 36 touchdowns, rushed for 22 and even found himself on the receiving end of another in his junior year. The Cards beat out Arizona State, Michigan State, Kansas State, among others.
Louisville has established itself as a program for quarterbacks to flourish in their game. Heisman winner Lamar Jackson is the latest product, but he took over for first-round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater. Others such as Brian Brohm, Stefan LeFors, Chris Redman, and even Johnny Unitas called Louisville home. As new coach Scott Satterfield takes over a program in need of desperate repair, his recruiting and experienced coaching staff has made it apparent that the long tradition of great Louisville quarterbacks won’t end anytime soon.
