The Cards have made it clear they want a couple back court players in the 2015 class and 5 star PG Justin Simon may just be at the top of that list. Simon is rated as high as the #1 PG in the class of 2015 and at 6’5 190 lbs is ready to contribute right away at the college level. Where will Simon’s contribution be noticed?……Defense Defense Defense. Simon has a 7 foot wingspan and is an absolute ball hawk that would fit right into that Rick Pitino defense we have all become accustomed to.
Simon has scholarships from most of the nations elite but most believe the Cards, Arizona, Kansas, and Texas may be the race for Simons services. The much respected Director of basketball scouting for 247 sports Jerry Meyer recently made a “Crystal Ball” pick for the Cards regarding Simon and others are beginning to follow suit. Simon is expected to take a closer look at the Louisville campus in the coming months. The Cards are already in great shape with Simon and a visit may just seal the deal. Remember the name Justin Simon and pay VERY close attention in the months to come. #L1C4
