As for outward appearances, it appears that the Louisville Cardinals are in the lead for former Virginia Tech forward Montrezl Harrell. Harrell will visit Louisville on May 31 and has not set a visit to any of the other schools on his list. Harrell is also including Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina State, Alabama, and Connecticut as possible destinations. A lot of pundits are saying Louisville is the front-runner for Harrell but the scholarship situation seems to be a mystery. Apparently the Cardinals have no scholarships available.
Never fear. It appears that Louisville may have to drop someone else’s scholarship to make room for Harrell. This would not be the first time for the Cardinals. Forward Jared Swopshire was jettisoned to Northwestern after this season because of the Cardinals scholarship situation. Some Cardinals fan boards are calling for oft injured Rakeem Buckles to be summarily dispatched.
Stay classy, Cardinal fans.
