With the news of Bobby Petrino returning to his old post at Louisville, several Western Kentucky commitments talk about their plans for the future.

Bobby Petrino spent one football season as Head Coach at Western Kentucky, during that time he picked up several football commitments for the Hilltopper program. But now that he’s moving on from the program, will any of his commitments follow suit?

Nacarius Fant: “(Petrino leaving) doesn’t affect me. If (Jeff) Brohm is head coach, I have as much confidence in him as I have in Petrino. We have good recruits coming.”

Joel Iyiegbuniwe: “I really hoped he would’ve stayed, but regardless I’m staying with the Tops.”

Ryan Duvall: “I’m disappointed that I don’t get to play under Petrino, but I doesn’t change my decision to play for Western Kentucky.”

DeAndre Farris’ Father, Lamour: “We don’t know right now. We’re just waiting to see who gets the job at WKU and what Petrino does going forward. “We haven’t spoken to the coaches yet. We plan to speak to them.”

Evan Sayner: “I’m a little disappointed that he left, but I’m still excited about going to Western Kentucky.”

Will Bush: “I’m not really surprised (that he left). It depends on who gets the head coaching job at Western. If Brohm takes over, I will be there.”

Nick True: “I respect Petrino’s decision and I’m still committed to Western. I trust that WKU will choose a great coach to fill the spot. I hope the best for him at Louisville.”

Derik Overstreet: “It’s pretty disappointing, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about Coach Brohm, assuming he’ll be the new head coach.”
