This wasn’t the start Scott Satterfield was looking for at Louisville.

The new Cardinals coach is getting off to somewhat of a rough start on the recruiting trail inside his own state following the decommitment of Franklin-Simpson offensive guard Jack Randolph. This wasn’t simply a young man changing his mind leading up to the early signing period, however, as according to Randolph’s high school head coach, Doug Preston, the Franklin-Simpson standout had his offer pulled from Satterfield and the new Louisville staff.

That’s caused Preston to vow to keep Louisville out of his school moving forward.

While it’s no surprise to see a high school coach defend his player, social media may not be the best forum for such a display. After all, while Preston is upset now, he may have run-ins with Satterfield and his staff for years to come.

It’s also worth noting that often times, college programs pull these stunts immediately before National Signing Day or the early signing period. Louisville didn’t do that here, as Randolph will still have this weekend to visit another school before the upcoming dead period in recruiting and the early signing period arrives and he will still have nearly two months to explore his options if he holds off on signing his National Letter of Intent until the traditional National Signing Day in February.

This is never a pleasant thing to see, but it’s inevitable when a new staff takes over at a school, at least Louisville made this move quickly enough for Randolph to explore his options before selecting his college of choice.
