Williamson made it official in front of his friends and family in the library at Rockwall High School.

Johnson is ranked as the 72nd best overall player in the 2019 class. He chose the Cards over Georgia and Xavier. Johnson had previously been committed to Louisville prior to Rick Pitino being fired.
Not only was Nickelberry the first to give Chris Mack a verbal pledge, he was also the first to make it official on Wednesday morning.
The North Carolina native has been on fire to start his senior season at Northwood Temple. He scored a total of 75-points in two games over the weekend.
Slazinski doesn’t get the attention that the rest of the class gets due to his ranking and the fact that he’s expected to redshirt in his freshman season. With that said, he’s expected to see a jump in the updated rankings after some sensational performances for Huntington Prep. With continued improvement, we may not see Slazinski redshirt.
The Texas native has already signed his paperwork, but will have a ceremony on Friday afternoon.
Thank You Card Nation🐔🔴 I can’t wait‼️ https://t.co/chVVKHlw3K

Slazinski chose Louisville over offers from Depaul, Michigan State, Wake Forest, Xavier, Cal, Georgia Tech, Houston, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M, among others.
Committed Still Unsigned
Igiehon is believed by some to the prize piece of Chris Mack’s 2019 class. His commitment last month helped propel Louisville’s class to No. 1 in the ESPN rankings.
He chose the Cards over Oregon, Kentucky and St. John’s. He is expected to sign in the spring so his family from Ireland can be a part of the ceremony.
Withers is likely the most versatile player in Louisville’s 2019 class. The combo forward is ranked as the 85th best player in the country, but he was recruited by some big name programs.
The North Carolina native chose Louisville over Arizona, Florida, Texas and Texas A&M. He holds more than twenty scholarship offers.
Withers is expected to sign within the next week.<
