Liberty transfer CB Kei'Trel Clark commits to Louisville

The University of Louisville football program got some unexpected but welcome news on Friday, as former Liberty University cornerback Kei'Trel Clark announced on Twitter that he had committed to the Cardinals. It had previously been rumored that he was "finalizing" a transfer to West Virginia 

While Liberty's program, staff and teammates "were a complete blessing" to him, Clark opted to enter the transfer portal back on June 22 due to the "cultural incompetent within multiple level of leadership" at the university that did not "line up with my code of ethics".

Clark had a successful 2019 season with the Flames and eventually worked his way into a starter's role as a freshman. The 5-foot-10 & 165 pound corner played in all 13 games, collecting 38 tackles (33 solo), 3.0 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and 6 pass break ups.

This is a big pickup for Scott Satterfield and the rest of his coaching staff, as he should be able to contribute immediately no matter when he is able to set foot on the gridiron. If the NCAA grants him a waiver to play in 2020, he adds depth to a position group where the backups are relatively inexperienced. If he has to wait until 2021, I anticipate him to be a leader to the six defensive backs currently committed to Louisville in the Class of 2021. Regardless, he will still have three years left of eligibility with the Cardinals.
