Shamar Johnson back on the market
Three-star offensive tackle Shamar Johnson (Pensacola, Fla./Pine Forest) is no longer committed to Louisville, multiple sources report.
Florida International, Florida Atlantic and Kentucky also offered the 6-foot-5, 285-pound senior. South Florida has shown interest.
ESPN writes in his evaluation, "Johnson displays good initial quickness coming off the ball when run blocking. However we want to see improved explosion and playing strength. Has the size and athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition ... Johnson needs some time and perhaps a red shirt year to grow physically while polishing his technical skills."
Louisville has just eight verbals and one of the smallest BCS classes for 2013. Three-star outside linebacker Jacarthy Mack (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) also recently departed from the Cardinals' commit list.
