Louisville has been believed to be in good shape with Withers since Chris Mack offered a scholarship in April.
The North Carolina native was also being pursued heavily by Arizona, Florida, Texas and Texas A&M. He holds more than twenty scholarship offers.
Withers is rated as a four-star prospect by 247Sports. He’s ranked as the 91st best player in the 2019 class.
Withers joins three star guard Josh Nickleberry to form Louisville’s two-man 2019 recruiting class.
