UofL has three signees and one commitment to date in Pitino’s 2015 class which ranks fourth nationally according to 247Sports. Pitino and staff have been all over the country scouting talent to bring in for immediate help. We spoke about these new prospects on the radio show last night and here are some of the newer names on Louisville’s recruiting radar:
*4-star SG Mychal Mulder 14 ppg. (6’4 – 185 lb.)
-No. 4 SG in JUCO, the leading scorer on the No.1 team in the nation, Missouri and Wichita State showing interest
Vincennes guard Mychal Mulder had 26 points (6-7 from three) in a win tonight in front of head coaches from Louisville and Creighton

*4-star SG Teyvon Myers 25 ppg (6’2 – 180 lb.)
-No. 2 SG in JUCO, leads all of JUCO in scoring, West Virginia and Clemson showing interest
Teyvon Myers has picked up a slew of Louisville predictions at 247Sports. In the video I watched he shoots like a shorter Jamal Crawford.

*4-star C Yankuba Sima (6’11 – 215 lb.)
-No. 97 overall/ No. 13 Center according to 247Sports, Arizona and Maryland are also recruiting him
A newfound toughness in the post and vastly improved mid-range game has elevated the high-major stock of Yankuba Sima.
Maryland, Arizona, and Louisville all have been in persistent pursuit of the 6-foot-11 forward/center. Yankuba dropped 15 points (7-for-9 FG), ripped down six rebounds, blocked a shot and manipulated about four others during a 15-minute span of Elev8’s 93-90 resume win over Hargrave Military Academy earlier this month.
“Maryland, Arizona, and Louisville have shown the most love,” said Sima, who has packed muscle onto a leafy frame while subscribing to the role of rim protector.
