For the second half of the 2015 season, South Carolina defensive end Boosie Whitlow seemed like an up-and-comer for the Gamecocks.
But after not getting in a game in 2016, he announced his intention to transfer in February. Now he’s found a new home.
Rivals.com reported Whitlow will join the Louisville Cardinals, and Whitlow began retweeting messages welcoming him to the school.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound sophomore from Opelika, Ala., had 14 tackles and a sack in 2015. After sitting out last season, he should have two seasons to play for the Cardinals, starting in 2018.
Louisville’s defense ranked in the top 10 nationally in yards per play allowed. During the offseason, coordinator Todd Grantham left and was replaced by Mississippi State’s Peter Sirmon. The Cardinals ran a 3-4 last season, so it’s likely Whitlow ends up an outside linebacker.
