Andrew White could be the next player to pop for the Cardinals
As many of you know, Louisville has scheduled two red-white intrasquad scrimmages in the upcoming weeks – one on October 14th and the other on October 22nd. Both games will give fans a glimpse of the 2011-2012 Cardinals team that was a near unanimous top-10 preseason selection by basketball analysts across the board. These events will also allow the Cards to host a slew of talented prospects from the 2012, 2013 and 2014 classes. Here’s a quick checklist of the upcoming visitors:
October 8th:Jabari Parker — Parker will be in town for the John Lucas midwest invitational camp and will take an unofficial visit to the campus on Saturday. Parker is the #1 player in the class of 2013 and hails from Chicago, Illinois.
October 8th and 9th: Andrew White — White is a 4-star, silky 6-7 small forward from Charlottesville, Virginia. He was originally scheduled to visit on the 14th, but cancelled a trip to Texas in order to move up his visit to Louisville. Things are heating up and White could be the second piece of the puzzle for 2012.
October 14th: 2012: D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera and Robert Upshaw — Smith-Rivera has been a long-time target for the Cards. He’s a 6-4 combo guard currently playing his prep ball at Oak Hill Academy. Upshaw is a long, 7-0 center from California. Head coach Rick Pitino and assistant Wyking Jones have turned up the pressure lately and have made Upshaw a priority. 2013: Malik Price Martin and Anton Gill — Price Martin is a 6-8 4-star forward from Miami Pace high school (the same school that produced Rakeem Buckles) and Anton Gill is a 6’2 4-star shooting guard from Raleigh, North Carolina. 2014: Trey Grundy, Jordan Green, Quentin Snider and D’Angelo Russell — Basically the entire Louisville Magic AAU team. All local stars in Louisville and Lexington, these 4 could be a recruiting class all unto themselves. Snider has already committed to the Cards…..will the others follow suit?
