Rick Pitino lands third commitment in 2017 class

Jon Lopez/Nike

Louisville landed a commitment on Wednesday from Jordan Nwora, a top 100 prospect from New York.

Nwora, a Buffalo native, played with the NY Rens on the Nike EYBL circuit and developed a reputation for being one of the best shooters in that league. At 6-foot-7, he can play either forward spot, although he’s not really big enough to be a full-time four nor is he quick enough to be an out-and-out wing player.

But he is a matchup problem that has some versatility offensively, which will make him a valuable asset for a Louisville program that doesn’t always have great shooters on their roster.

Nwora is Louisville’s third commitment in the class, joining Malik Williams and Darius Perry.
