According to multiple sources Rick Pitino and Asst. Coach Kenny Johnson are watching 2015 4 star PG Traci Carter today. Pitino mentioned in his pre game press conference on Monday that the Cards would still like to add one more guard in the 2015 class. While all signs point to the Cards looking to land a “5th year transfer” Carter’s name also has risen to the forefront. Steve Jones of the Courier Journal spoke with Carter’s mentor Donnie Carr about the possibility of the 4 star guard landing at Louisville
From Steve Jones’s article:
The 6-foot-1 Carter, who’s coached by former U of L All-American Pervis Ellison at Life Center Academy in New Jersey, has been a bit of an under-the-radar prospect after missing the important April and July evaluation periods with a knee injury but is as good as any point guard in the class, his mentor said.
It was U of L’s first time inquiring about Carter, and the Cards have not offered a scholarship, but Carter has been thinking about Louisville for a while. Carter has followed U of L for years, is a fan of Pitino and was hoping to be recruited by the coach.
“Louisville was like a dream school for Traci,” Carr said. “I think he would be honored to get an offer from a prestigious program like Louisville. It would just confirm that hard work really does pay off and dreams do come true.”
Carter is coached by former Louisville great Pervis Ellison and is definitely a name to keep an eye on. Follow Traci Carter on twitter
