Surprisingly, that all changed on July 31st when Snider decided to reopen his recruitment.
There was plenty of speculation as to why Snider, a hometown star and diehard Louisville fan, abruptly decided to explore other options.
Snider, a 6-foot-1 four-star point guard, committed to Illinois just six weeks after decommitting from Louisville. Since then, there hasn’t been much talk about the homegrown floor general.
At least not until now.
Snider was expected to sign his national letter of intent with Illinois on Wednesday Nov. 13, which is the first day college basketball recruits can make their commitments official. Nearly 48-hours into the early signing period, Snider still hasn’t signed with Illinois.
The Cardinal Connect spoke to a source very close to Snider on Thursday evening and can confirm that Snider and the Louisville staff have been in contact within the past 24-hours.
The fact that Snider has been in contact with the Louisville staff doesn’t necessarily mean anything. However, the fact that the two sides are communicating once again is obviously a good sign for Louisville.
At this point, Quentin Snider is still an unsigned recruit, but I’d recommend you stay tuned to The Cardinal Connect as the story develops.
