According to Jody Demling, Trinity star James Quick will be attending tonight's game against Murray State as a Louisville visitor.
Scout.com reports that Rick Pitino will be making an in-house visit with class of 2012 star Gary Harris on Sept. 10.
"Louisville's situation has been a little different," said Harris. "Tim Fuller was recruiting me, but then he left and they got a whole new staff. It was just kind of different because I didn't have the relationship with that staff that I had with the other staffs. Now I am developing a good relationship with Wyking Jones. They have been calling me a lot lately, and Coach Pitino is just going to come in and tell me where I fit in their program and how he plans on using me. Assuming he meeting goes well I plan to make an official visit down there after that."

Murray State at Louisville, Thursday, 6 p.m. ESPNU. We get our first glimpse at the baby Cardinals, who have 21 true or redshirt freshmen on their two-deep headed into this game, and are going to be without two big contributors in center Mario Benavides and defensive end B.J. Butler. This is going to be a test for the Cardinals and their green secondary because Murray State likes to throw. Pat Forde called an upset, but I am going with the Cardinals. Louisville 38, Murray State 17.
