Huge recruiting weekend on tap for Louisville

As if playing host to a top five team in late February wasn't excitement enough, it appears U of L will be receiving visits from five of the most highly-touted high school basketball players in the country over the weekend.

According to Scout.com's Evan Daniels, five-star class of 2012 prospects Shabazz Muhammad and Gary Harris will attend Louisville's home game against Pittsburgh, along with four-star class of 2013 recruit Zak Irvin and Cardinal commitments Rodney Purvis and Negus Webster-Chan.

Jody Demling had previously reported that Muhammad's AAU teammate Winston Shepard would also be visiting, but Daniels says this is not the case. Demling is on furlough from The Courier-Journal this week, so everything posted on his blog was actually written several days ago.

Harris and Irvin are teammates and Hamilton Southeastern (Ind.), and led their squad to a regular season-ending 15-point victory on Friday night.


Muhammad has offers from every major program in the country, though it was hinted weeks ago that Kentucky and Duke might be the favorites for his services. Harris is ranked as the second-best shooting guard in the class of 2012 by Scout, and the class' 12th best overall player by ESPN.com.

Getting these guys on campus (or back on campus in Muhammad's case) is a big deal.
