When it comes to taking a hit depth-wise along the offensive line, Louisville’s certainly feeling that bit of a punch in the gut at the moment.
According to CardChronicle.com, Abraham “Nacho” Garcia, Chandler Bridges and Cameron Fraser have decided to leave the Cardinals football program. To where any of the three may transfer is unofficial, although TheCrunchZone.com reports that Fraser may be headed to Youngstown State.
The departure of the most experienced of the three, Garcia, will likely be felt the most in the upcoming season.
Garcia was a three-star member of the UofL’s 2012 recruiting class, rated as the No. 55 guard in the country. In the seven games he played last season, Garcia started two of those contests — one at right tackle, one at right guard — before suffering a season-ending knee injury in late October.
Bridges, a two-star tackle, and Fraser, a three-star tackle, both took redshirts as true freshmen in 2013.
