Louisville Rumored To Be Early Favorite For Kevin Ware

It’s been less than 24 hours since Kevin Ware was granted a release from Tennessee and Louisville is already considered the front-runner to land him. Louisville, UGA, UCLA, Kansas, Georgia Tech, LSU, Florida State, Central Florida and Syracuse are the schools who seem to have the most interest in Ware.

Ware has yet to start communicating with coaches due to the no-contact period. He said if he had a wish list, he’d love to take official visits to Louisville, UCLA, Georgia and Central Florida.

Ware’s comments to

“I’m happy about the release and to see how my whole recruiting process will go now because I really didn’t go through it the first time,” Ware told the AJC on Thursday. “I committed to Bruce Pearl when I was a sophomore and never thought about going anywhere else until he was fired. Now I want to go the regular recruiting process and see how things go.”

I can’t emphasize enough how huge it would be if the Cards can land this kid. Ware is more of a shooting guard than a point guard, but anytime you have a chance to land an athlete like this, you have to take it. The addition of Ware would make this a unanimous top 3 class, in my opinion.
