Look: Louisville Football's 2021 Commits Officially Receive Their Scholarship Offers

Matthew McGavic

In his first full recruiting cycle as the head coach of the Louisville football program, Scott Satterfield and his coaching staff have done an excellent job. They have received twenty-two verbal pledges in the Class of 2021, a collection of prospects that ranks as high as the No. 14 class in the nation according to Rivals.

Much like committing to a school where a prospect's decision to commit is merely a verbal one and doesn't become official until National Signing Day, coaching staffs offering scholarships operate in a similar way. Per NCAA rules a coaching staff can verbally offer scholarships at any time, but cannot officially offer that scholarship until August 1 heading into their senior year. So in theory a prospect could be committed to a school and not *technically* have received a scholarship offer - yet.

Well that date has arrived, and one-by-one those verbal scholarship offers made out to Louisville's 2021 football commits are becoming official. Several of them took the time to share their official offers on social media:
