Louisville remained hot on the recruiting trail as the Cardinals landed a commitment from Class of 2019 four-star guard David Johnson on Friday night.
The 6-foot-4 Johnson is a local product as he comes from nearby Trinity High School. Johnson is Louisville’s first commitment in the Class of 2019.
Regarded as the No. 80 overall prospect in the Rivals national 2019 rankings, Johnson is a versatile perimeter player who should fit in nicely with what the Cardinals are bringing in over the next few classes.
In the Class of 2018, Louisville already owns perimeter commitments from five-star Anfernee Simons and four-star Courtney Ramey, so Johnson should be able to slide in and play alongside those guys when he enters the program.
Louisville has been doing very well on the recruiting trail over the last few months as they also secured a late spring commitment in the Class of 2017 from McDonald’s All-American Brian Bowen.
