Louisville was there from the very beginning for Dahu Green.
The Westmoore star decided Thursday that dedication was enough for him to verbally commit to the Cardinals.
“They were my first offers, so I had real high interest in them right off the bat,” Green said. “Learning about the program and stuff like that, and meeting the coaches, it was the right fit for me.”
Green, a 6-foot-3 receiver who is ranked No. 5 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30, caught 10 touchdown passes among his 40 receptions and 700 yards last season for the Jaguars, who made the Class 6A semifinals.
He said he hopes to be playing around 200 pounds once this season starts, a 10-pound increase from last season.
Green also said he’s looking forward to playing for Louisville coach Bobby Petrino, who was hired in January for his second stint with the team as it enters the Atlantic Coast Conference.
“I want to be part of something special,” Green said. “I feel like Bobby Petrino is a great offensive mind. I feel like offense is going to be unstoppable and all of the weapons on offense are going to make it great.”
Green had 14 scholarship offers, including Cincinnati, Illinois, Tulsa, Wake Forest and Washington State.
