Louisville Linemen Enter Transfer Portal, Shaking Up Football Program

A trio of linemen from Louisville, Lance Robinson, Trevonte Sylvester, and Reuben Unije, have decided to enter the transfer portal. All three players previously played for Houston before transferring to Louisville. Victor Cutler was initially set to join them but later opted to stay with the Cardinals.

These transfers mark the beginning of potential changes for the Louisville football program during the spring transfer window. Robinson, Sylvester, and Unije are the first players to make this decision in this cycle, with the transfer portal officially opening on April 16th.

Robinson, a 6'4" lineman, joined Louisville last year after a season with the Cougars. He made his debut in the Holiday Bowl against USC and has been a key part of the offensive line during spring practices.

Sylvester, a 6'6" lineman, also came to Louisville from Houston last year. He saw playing time in nine games, primarily at left tackle, and even scored a touchdown on a trick play against Miami.

Unije, a 6'5" offensive tackle, transferred to Louisville in January after playing four seasons with Houston. He started 11 games last season, demonstrating his skills in pass protection and overall blocking.

Despite the transfers out of the program, Louisville has been proactive in recruiting new talent. The team has secured commitments from 25 players via the portal, earning them the top spot in On3's college football portal class rankings.

Looking ahead, the Cardinals are gearing up for their upcoming season under head coach Jeff Brohm. After a successful 2023 season, including an appearance in the ACC Championship Game, Louisville will kick off their year against Austin Peay at L&N Stadium.
