Markelle Fultz is a consensus 5-star shooting guard on the four major recruiting sites, and he will officially visit the Louisville Cardinals on Wednesday, August 5. Fultz has set two official visits so far, Louisville and Arizona. He will visit Arizona on August 8. Players only get five official visits, so this is pretty big.
He told Scout.com: “I am going to Louisville on Wednesday, which is after this camp ends. I am looking to meet the players and just get more detail. An official is different than an unofficial so I am looking forward to seeing the environment and talking to Coach (Rick) Pitino.”
He also added: “My plan is to make all five official visits, but if I go on a visit and it is the right place I will commit,” said Fultz. “That said my plan is to take all five official visits.”
All four sites rate him as a top-25 player in the country in the 2016 class. Currently, Louisville has three scholarships for 2016, with one of those being taken by 6’7 five-star wing V.J. King.
