As promised, I will post early enrollee information when I get it from the schools. Last week featured Cincinnati, USF and West Virginia. Here are the six players enrolled early at Louisville:

Keith Brown, LB, 6-1, 225 pounds, Miami (Miami Norland)

James Burgess Jr., LB, 6-0, 200 pounds, Homestead, Fla. (Homestead Senior)

Gerald Christian, TE, 6-3, 240 pounds, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. (William T. Dwyer/Florida)

Robert Clark, WR, 5-8, 185 pounds, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. (William T. Dwyer/Florida)

Gerod Holliman, DB, 6-0, 185 pounds, Miami (Northwestern/Milford)

Ryan Hubbell, TE, 6-5, 235 pounds, Council Bluffs, Iowa (Iowa Western)

Notes: Well, it is clear coach Charlie Strong is assembling some major talent in Louisville. Brown and Burgess are four-star commitments and two of the standout players for the class of 2010. Holliman was a four-star pledge last season, and Christian was a four-star recruit when he signed with Florida in 2010. It is great to see Holliman qualify academically after spending a year at Milford Academy. His addition will be huge for a young secondary that made major strides last season, especially when you consider he is one of the top prospects Strong has signed during his brief tenure there. Linebacker also was a major area of need, so getting Brown and Burgess in early only helps. Hubbell was one of the top junior college players available, and there is a definite need at tight end with Josh Chichester gone. Clark was a three-star player when he signed with Florida in the class of 2010. Both he and Christian will have to sit out a year, per NCAA transfer rules.
