Maverick Rowan to make reclassification decision in the next 2 weeks

If you are a Louisville Basketball fan you have probably heard the name Maverick Rowan. It was widely rumored that Rowan would attempt to finish the last couple classes he needed and graduate this summer. Rowan ran into a problem when his current high school Cardinal Gibbons seemed to not be sure how they could make this work. Last we heard Rowan was looking for a school to make this happen and it appears he may have done just that. Rowan’s father told the following to the Post-Gazette:

“Nothing is definite yet. We just have to make a decision,” said Ron Rowan. “I found a place he can graduate from. He can take the two classes he needs.

“If he decides he wants to go to college [this fall], then that’s a decision that needs to be within the next 10 days, because he will have to start summer school right after school ends [at Cardinal Gibbons]. If he doesn’t go to college, then there is a little bit of time to make a decision.”

Rowan’s father made it clear that the family had 3 options: stay at Cardinal Gibbons, go back to his original high school Lincoln Park, or graduate early and attend college. If Rowan opts for the latter expect him to be in a Louisville uniform next season.

Basketball Recruit to Watch: V.J. King

V.J. King is a 6’7 small forward in the class of 2016. He visited the Cards last weekend and by all accounts, it sounds like the visit went well and that UofL is in a great spot with him. He recently narrowed his choices down to five: Louisville, Kentucky, UConn, Arizona, and Virginia.

One reason that Louisville is in such a good spot with King is Kenny Johnson. Johnson once coached King’s current high school, Paul VI, and King plays for Johnson’s former AAU team, Team Takeover.

Terry Rozier: Biggest Winner at NBA Draft Combine?

The NBA Draft Combine was held over the last few days in Chicago, and Terry Rozier seems to have helped himself a lot with his draft stock. Sam Vecenie of CBSSports.com made a list of three players that helped themselves and three people that hurt themselves.

I don’t think he put it in any particular order, but he did list Terry Rozier first. Here is what he had to say.

Montrezl Harrell Q&A at NBA Draft Combine

Former Louisville Cardinal Montrezl Harrell met with some media members on Friday in Chicago while at the NBA Draft Combine. Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal has transcribed his interview, and you can check that out right here. This is about half of it, there will be a link at the bottom to read the rest of it.

How’s the draft process going so far?

It’s been a pretty smooth process. It’s definitely been a tough grind, switching from the college game to getting more prepared for the NBA, but it’s definitely been a smooth process.

What part of your game translates the easiest to the NBA?

Rebounding, playing with high energy and a high motor all the time during the game. I definitely feel like I can carry that over to the NBA and be able to play like that for the full length of the game.

This really happened. Donovan Mitchell hit a 3 pointer, and then dunked the ball before it hit the ground! I don’t know about you, but that should definitely be a legal play.

Hey CardFam! It’s been a long month but I finally have had some time these past few days to catch up.

We ended up advancing far into the Eurocup championships, beating some really tough teams. I got a chance to play against Juan Palacios and his team, Karsiyaka in Izmir, Turkey, winning both games with a score differential of +10.

Five-Star Small Forward Will Visit Louisville

Photo: ny2lasports.com

Photo: ny2lasports.com

This past weekend was a big one on the basketball recruiting front. Of course, the Cards don’t have many scholarships over the next couple of years, so you won’t hear too many names that they are going after. However, the weekend did produce the news that a 5-star small forward in the class of 2016 will be taking an official visit to Louisville.

Update on Maverick Rowan: Not Allowed to Comment on Louisville?

Photo: 247 Sports

It was a strange Friday night for Louisville target Maverick Rowan. The Cards have one spot left to fill for next season’s team. That spot looks to be reserved for Rowan, and if he can’t reclassify to 2015, the scholarship may just be saved and not used for this season.

Rowan was in Lexington on Friday playing in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League. Yes, Nike. Not only that, he played for the Each1Teach1 team, better known as E1T1. That is the same team that Antonio Blakeney played for. Remember Blakeney committed to Louisville and then about (what seemed like) 10 seconds later, he decommitted and ultimately ended up choosing LSU, a Nike school.
