Two Louisville commits reopen recruitments following latest scandal

It didn’t take long for future Louisville Cardinals to jump ship following today’s news.

Anfernee Simons was the first to decommit from the program, not even an hour after the UofL press conference was televised nationally. Simons is the top-ranked combo guard and the No. 12 overall player in the Class of 2018, according to the 247 Composite Rankings.

Shortly after Simons reopened his recruitment, another Louisville commit did the same. Courtney Ramey, the ninth-ranked guard in the Class of 2018, will consider other schools after committing to Pitino and the Cards earlier this year. Ramey’s father told Scout.com, “We aren’t excited about it, but it’s something we have to do.”

I don’t think anyone is surprised by the news.

    At this point, would you touch these kids if you were another major school? Are they now too tainted given how aggressive the federal investigation seems to be? Would bringing these kids in invite too much scrutiny?

    “We aren’t excited about it, but it’s something we have to do.” You know, because that’s what we’re paid to do.

      Would love to see Duke finally take the fall they deserved for that scandal, especially after the NCAA swept it under the rug for them.

    Just thinking today about how things have gone full circle for Pitino. He comes to UK in 1989 when UK is in shambles. He recruits and coaches UK back to the top of the mountain in 1996 and nearly repeats in 1997. Some years later, he takes over a Louisville program and keeps them competitive for nearly 20 years. He is now leaving a Louisville program in shambles, much like the one in Lexington that he rebuilt to prominence 2 decades ago…..the irony.
