2016 5 star Small Forward VJ King is set to make an official visit to Louisville this weekend. The 6’6 King is a consensus 5 star player on every major recruiting site and the Cards seem to be in prime position. The main reason for Louisville’s great position with King, Kenny Johnson. Johnson once coached King’s current high school Paul VI and King plays for Johnson’s former AAU team Team Takeover. Johnson has already paid great dividends for Pitino but King could be his biggest haul yet.
King recently cut his list to Louisville, UConn, Virginia, Arizona and Kentucky. At this time Louisville leads King’s 247 Crystal Ball with 83% of the picks. King has plans to also visit UCONN on May 29th but has no other visit set at this time. A commitment from King this weekend is unlikely but not impossible so keep a close eye on this one.
