Keeping it in the family.
Wide Receiver Gerald Christian will play his final game with the University of Louisville football in the Belk Bowl but his kinfolk will continue to maintain a strong rooting interest in the Cardinals after the bowl game.
Gerald’s younger brother, Geron, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound offensive lineman has made a verbal commitment to play at UofL as a member of the incoming 2015 class. He played his high school football at Ocala (Fla.) Trinity Catholic, which had an 11-3 won-lost record this season.
Geron had previously committed to play at the University of Miami. He also received interest from numerous schools, including Arkansas, Mississippi State, Central Florida and East Carolina.
Filling gaps on the offensive line is critical for the University of Louisville football staff, with three of five starters graduating this year.
Christian is the 21st commitment in this recruiting class. The signing period begins Feb. 4.
