LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The Louisville football program has made the cut for one of their top targets in the Class of 2025.

Saint Augustine (Fla.) HS wide receiver Carl Jenkins Jr. announced his top four schools on Thursday, with the Cardinals still in the running for his commitment. UCF, USF and Mississippi State are also in the running, and he is set to make his decision on June 29.

Jenkins has been big time target for Louisville ever since offering him a scholarship last August. He's made a handful of visits to the Derby City, including taking an official visit earlier this month.

"Honestly, it's been very awesome," Jenkins told Louisville Report. "It's been what I expected it to be. I expected it would be really great, really awesome."
