  • Louisville is putting together one of the best recruiting classes in the country for 2023.
  • The Cardinals added a crown jewel to that class on Monday with 5-star running back Reuben Owens.
  • Owens officially visited the university over the weekend and it was one of the craziest official visits you’ll ever seen.

Safe to the University of Louisville has this name, image and likeness stuff down pat.

The Cardinals are just 18-19 in their first three seasons under head coach Scott Satterfield, but that hasn’t seemed to matter when it comes to recruiting. Louisville entered Monday with one of the best recruiting classes in the nation in 2023, and it got better from there.

Louisville gained a commitment for five-star running back Rueben Owens on Monday night.

The Texas native is the top running back in the nation according to 247Sports and No. 18 overall player regardless of position.

He had previously been committed to Texas before reopening his recruitment a little over a year ago. His commitment to Louisville comes just one day after returning home from an insane official visit.

Louisville Hosts Unreal Official Visit Weekend

Everything is bigger and better in the era of NIL. But Louisville may have just taken things to an entirely different level. The Cards hosted one of the most insane official visits you’ll ever see this past weekend for some of their top recruits, Owens included.

Elite four-star quarterback commit Pierce Clarkson seemed to lead the way for most of the visit.

Did we mention there were private jets?

Oh, and billboards too!

You can’t forget the luxury cars.

Of course photo shoots are a must these days.

What would a trip to Louisville be without a visit to Churchill Downs?

The Cards are killing it right now in recruiting, and it’s not difficult to see why.
