Geffard's check out Louisville

Geffard's check out Louisville

Isaac and Jacob Geffard, a pair of two-star safeties from Oakland Park (FL) Northeast, committed to Louisville without ever stepping foot on campus. This weekend, the Geffard twins made their first visit to Louisville and had a chance to meet with the Cardinals new defensive coaches.

Isaac, the No. 55 prospect at his position, and Jacob, the No. 60 weak-side linebacker prospect nationally, finally made their official visit to Louisville after committing to the Cardinals early last month. According to the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Isaac Geffard, Louisville made quite an impression.

"I loved the place. It was better than I thought it was going to be," Isaac Geffard said. "It had a very friendly feel and the team feels a lot like my team. The players remind me of a lot of my friends back home. I liked the dorms and me, my brother and Shenard (Holton) are talking about rooming together.

"Me and coach Kragthrope and coach (Antonio) Goss and all the other coaches have a strong relationship and talked about a lot of different things. They showed me around the city. It's bigger than I thought it would be. It has a nice college feel. I really enjoyed it."

Originally recruited by former UofL defensive coordinator Bill Miller, who left for Kansas this month, the Geffard's had a chance to discuss with Brent Guy the new defensive coordinators plans for the future.

"I'm definitely playing the free safety spot," Isaac said. "My brother is going to be at the strong safety spot but depending on how big he gets he might drop down to outside linebacker."

Guy told Geffard that the Cardinals will play an aggressive style of defense next season.

"Basically he said we're going to go after people," Geffard said. "He said we're not going to sit back covering and just let athletes play football. He said we're going to put people in the best positions to make plays next year. We're going to be a very aggressive defense from what it sounds like."

"Coach Guy is a real good person," added Geffard, who was hosted on his official visit by Karldell Dunning and Josh Chichester. "He's my recruiter and we have a real strong relationship."

The Geffard's will sign national letter of intent with Louisville during a special event on Feb. 4 at their high school.

"We're going to have a nice, traditional ceremony at the school," Geffard said.
