Louisville basketball's recruiting has taken a pair of big blows today, in the fallout of Rick Pitino's impending ouster.
Now, a second class of 2018 guard commit is gone.
Four-star point guard Courtney Ramey has also decommitted from the Cards, leaving the program with an abruptly empty recruiting class. His father Terrell Ramey spoke about the decision with Scout:
"We are going to reopen it," the elder Ramey said. "We aren't excited about it, but it's something we have to do."
"It's a grinding process and I want my son to enjoy his senior season with out the pressure," he added. "We were all set to go to Louisville and play for coach P and play in the ACC. We thought it was a perfect fit, but due to the circumstances we are going to open it."
Ramey went on to say that he's sure previous relationships with other schools involved in the original recruitment "will come to light again."
The four-star point guard originally chose Louisville over 12 other top schools back on February 3: Arkansas, Creighton, Florida, Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas State, Marquette, Missouri, Northwestern, Ohio State, Texas, and USC.
He also holds offers from Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and others.
