When a prospect visits your campus, you want to show him a good time. You show off all your basketball wares and let a player or two spend some quality time with him. When it’s a player that you may or may not have used the media to force a decommitment from his last school, the burden might be a little heavier. And that’s why you can’t blame Louisville for bringing out the secret weapon for Kevin Ware.
Ware visited the Cards for Memorial Day weekend and, according to his Twitter account, spent some quality time Sunday night at Captain’s Quarters. Is it a little weird that a high school player was at a bar on his visit? Maybe. But I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I didn’t sneak into Captain’s Quarters before I was 21. And I’m certainly not going to stick my nose up at Louisville for enticing a prospect with all the cougar eye candy that Captain’s Quarter’s has to offer on Memorial Day weekend. Lord knows they need all the help they can get.
What concerns me though Ware’s thought process. He might be the only person who has spent an evening bouncing around Captain’s Quarters and decided that he needs commitment in his life. Chances of philosophical differences between player and coach are now at 100%.
