Sheldon Rankins Commits To Louisville

For the record, this happened almost a full 24 hours before tip-off. So we're cool for tomorrow, right?

Sheldon Rankins, 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive end from Eastside-Covington High School in Georgia committed to Louisville on Tuesday night, picking U of L over 25 other schools that offered him scholarships.

"They brought coaches in and spent time with my family," Rankins told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "I was already leaning towards Louisville. I had heard from other people that they might move me inside to defensive tackle, but they assured me that I'm their guy at defensive end. That's all I needed to hear."

Ok, if you weren't sold on this kid yet, get ready...

"I made it look like I was going to the bathroom, but I went and got this Louisville hat I had already bought. I came back out with the hat on and everybody went crazy after that."

In the history of time, there hasn't been a bad story that has started with the words "I made it look like I was going to the bathroom."

Welcome to the program, Sheldon. Please, get here as fast as you can.
