Rick Pitino and his staff are off to a great start with their 2018 recruiting class. UofL landed verbal commitments from guards Anfernee Simons and Courtney Ramey during the 2016-17 season.
Scout.com rates Ramey as a five star prospect and Simons as a four star prospect. Both are ranked in the top 35 overall in the 2018 class, which gives Louisville one of the current top ranked recruiting classes in the country.
Simons will play for Under Armour’s Team Breakdown throughout the AAU season this spring and summer. He had a great start this past weekend in New York City. Check out the highlights, courtesy of Courtside Films.
