Media Guide News & Notes
In addition to the incoming freshmen, two junior college players are new to the fall camp roster. Justin Hargens has transferred from Glendale (AZ) Community College and Matt Webb has joined the Cardinals after playing for two seasons at Scottsdale (AZ) Community College. The two provide an immediate answer to Louisville's long snapping concerns, as they will compete for the position during fall camp. Webb will enter practice atop the depth chart.
Absent From Roster
ITV had previously reported the departures of Eric and Thomas Miller, Thomas Boyce and Tyrone Saterfield, however, we haven't reported until now that Jon Scarborough and Emanuel Hassel also appear to no longer be apart of the team. Neither is present on the roster released in the media guide.
Familiar Name & Number
Freshman Bobby Buchanan will wear the same number as his older brother Ray Buchanan. Buchanan's #34 jersey has been honored by U of L and is displayed on the facade of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
All but one of the incoming freshmen are accounted for on the new roster. Lineman Josh Waller from Louisville Southern High School, is not listed listed on the roster. NOTE: LB Mozell Axson doesn't appear on the alphabetic roster listing, but does on the numerical listing.
Oh Those Rumors!
Despite the rumors stating the opposite, defensive end's Shane Bailey and Chad Jorgensen are listed on the roster. Bailey will enter fall camp second on the depth chart behind junior Elvis Dumervil.
Depth Chart Surprises?
While the depth chart will likely change a few times prior to the opening game against Kentucky, here are a few "surprises:"
Senior Adam McCauley is listed atop the depth chart at the full back position.
Full back Drew Steinmetz is only one of two true freshmen listed on the depth chart.
Quarterback Brian Brohm is the other, listed second behind Stefan LeFors.
McCauley is also listed as the second tight end behind sophomore Wayne Riles.
Sophomore Amobi Okoye enters the fall ahead of senior Bobby Leffew at defensive tackle. Leffew, who missed all of spring with an injury, will likely open the season as a starter.
Montrell Jones is listed as the first punt returner, ahead of Robert Haskins.
