September is Commit Month for Louisville basketball.
Quinn Slazinski, a three-star forward from Huntington Prep, became the fourth Class of 2019 recruit to commit to Louisville this month, he announced Thursday via social media.
“The day I’ve been waiting for my whole life,” lazinski wrote. “Thank you to all the coaches that have recruited me for the past few years, but I have decided to commit to the University of Louisville.”
The 6-foot-8 Slazinski chose the Cards over offers from the likes of TCU, Texas and Texas A&M.
Slazinski joins four-star recruits Samuell Williamson, David Johnson and Jaeyln Withers as Cardinals commits this month (Josh Nickelberry committed in May) to give Chris Mack both a large and impactful first true recruiting class with the Cardinals. There hasn’t been any slam-dunk one-and-dones to commit to the Cardinals, but if there was any doubt about Mack’s ability to recruit to Louisville, it’s likely evaporated quickly.
It would seem, at least on the recruiting trail, that Louisville is showing no ill effects from moving on from Rick Pitino. Not unlike the rest of the sport embroiled in last year’s federal investigation.
