Nick Faust is a 6’4 shooting guard from Baltimore, MD. He signed with Maryland in earlier this year, but Faust announced yesterday that he will seek a release from the school after Gary Williams’s abrupt retirement.
Louisville made a hard push for Faust in the fall, before he eventually chose Maryland. Tim Fuller was out in front doing the majority of the recruiting on Faust. According to USA-Today, he chose Maryland over Florida State, Marquette, Oregon State and Villanova. They didn’t mention Louisville, but for some reason I was under the impression that Louisville was one of the schools he strongly considered.
At this point, I’m not sure if Louisville make a run at Faust, but he’s a guy that could take this top ten class to the next level. Scout ranks him as the 12th best shooting guard in the country.<
