Big news broke Monday night in the college football recruiting world when Miami’s Rivals site reported Teddy Bridgewater, the 2nd/3rd ranked dual threat quarterback in the country, decommitted from the University of Miami. Bridgewater is a 6-3, 190-pound prospect from Miami Northwestern high school who runs a 4.6 forty. He is generally considered a top 100 prospect nationally.
Why is this news on a UofL/UK site? Because Bridgewater is visiting Louisville this weekend, along with teammate Eli Rogers, a talented receiver the Cards are also recruiting.
Teddy Bridgewater has not said a whole lot about his recruitment as of late, but Rogers said, in an interview with Louisville’s Scout affiliate, Bridgewater is definitely interested in the Cards and they are a player in his recruitment.
Now, Bridgewater is not eliminating the Hurricanes. He is still considering them, along with many other top programs in the country, and is waiting to see who they hire to replace Randy Shannon. But the Cards have a great opportunity this weekend to put themselves in prime position to land Teddy Bridgewater’s services. They still need a quarterback in the 2011 recruiting class and landing an elite player like Bridgewater would be a huge coup.
And make no mistake, Teddy Bridgewater is an elite prospect. By my calculations, he would be the Cards highest rated recruit ever.
Again, the Cards are just one of many teams going hard after this kid, but they have a legit chance. If Charlie Strong and company can pull this off and land Teddy Bridgewater, I may faint. Digg this!
