Justin Johnson - Running Back

While Louisville isn't expected to take another running back in this class, Johnson is a perfect candidate to use in Scott Satterfield's zone running scheme.

Targets off the Board:

Theodore Knox - Wide Receiver

- He had previously listed Louisville in his top seven schools, but opted to commit to Mississippi State.


Demetrius Cannon - Wide Receiver

The first wide receiver commit for the Class of 2021, Cannon is a big & physical receiver who also has enough agility and route running ability to be a threat in the short-intermediate game, particularly on comeback routes and screens. A six-foot-three & 185-pound prospect out of St Louis, he is the No. 7 player in the state of Missouri, the No. 83 wide receiver in the Class of 2021, and the No. 509 overall prospect in the nation according to the 247Sports composite.

Jackson Hamilton - Outside Linebacker 

Hamilton has the physicality to support the run & the coverage skills to defend the pass, but what sticks out the most on film is his patience and play recognition. Very rarely does he seem to make rash decisions that put him out of place to make the play. A six-foot & 202-pound prospect from Roswell, Hamilton is the No. 79 player in the state of Georgia and the No. 909 overall prospect in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite. 247Sports lists him as an OLB, while Rivals has him pegged as a safety.
