Unconfirmed reports within the Cardinal community indicate that Justin Burke may not suit up for the University of Louisville football team next season.
According to a couple of Cardinal sources, the backup Louisville quarterback may be choosing to finish up his undergraduate work at UofL, getting his degree and moving on to the working world or graduate school. No official word on this from Charlie Strong or Burke.
Zach Stoudt, the fouth string quarterback for UofL earlier decided to transfer. Appears he may be headed to Murfreesboro for a go withÂ Middle Tennessee State.
If Burke is not returning, that leaves quarterbacks Adam Froman, Will Stein and Alan Castro on the roster, in addition to Luke Woodley and Mike Rocco who will arrive this fall, and, possibly, a junior college transfer.
Depth shouldn’t be a problem but are these guys the type of quarterbacks that new offensive coordinator Mike Sanford wants to direct his offense? Time will tell.
More on Burke’s situation as it becomes available.
