Kyle Kuric makes it two in as many days

Evansville Memorial sharpshooter Kyle Kuric became the second player to commit to Louisville in 24 hours when he did so Sunday afternoon.

According to Jody Demling, the 6-foot-5 guard was on campus watching his sister, Katie, play soccer for the Cardinals and went to tell coach Rick Pitino of his decision in person.

Kuric burst onto the national radar this summer after putting on several shooting exhibitions while playing for the Evansville Basketball Club. He was offered a scholarship by Rick Pitino on Sept. 15.  

Pitino has celebrated the three-point line more than any other college coach since its institution in 1980, and Kuric figures to be a great asset when added to what should be a similar team to the one that shot just 33% from behind the arc a season ago.

Kuric joins last night's commit Terrence Jennings, as well as the nation's No. 2 player Samardo Samuels, and Notre Dame Prep point guard Melquan Bolding to make up Louisville's current class of 2008.

This weekend U of L will entertain IMG Academy 6-foot-7 forward Jared Swopshire, who is reportedly down to the Cards and conference rival Marquette. Louisville will also likely be waiting around a month to find out whether or not another one of the country's top five players, Tyreke Evans, will be bringing his game to the Derby City.
