LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Bobby Petrino will take the Cards into the ACC with 21 new recruits.

   Petrino's first class consisted mostly of players who had committed to Charlie Strong before he left for the Texas job earlier this year. The class consists of 12 offensive players and nine on the defensive side of the ball. The Cards signed five players from Florida while only getting one Kentucky signee, quarterback Reggie Bonnafon from Trinity.

   Petrino says he feels that the class "meets the needs we had".
