Quentin Snider signs with Louisville

Andy Lyons

After being committed to Louisville since his sophomore year of high school and abruptly switching his commitment to Illinois late in the recruiting process, Ballard star Quentin Snider changed his mind again and chosen to sign with the hometown Cardinals.

Ballard High School point guard Quentin Snider has signed with Louisville. Card Chronicle has learned that the local star faxed his signed letter of intent to U of L on Friday morning.

Snider is a consensus four-star player according to the various recruiting services, and ranks anywhere from 36th (ESPN) to 51st (247) overall in the class of 2014. Snider joins fellow standouts Shaqquan Aaron, Chinanu Onuaku, and Jaylen Johnson as members of Rick Pitino's 2014 recruiting class. All four have now signed in the early period.

After committing to Louisville before his sophomore year of high school and never wavering in that pledge, Snider shocked Cardinal fans over the summer when he announced that he wanted to look at other options.

"I would love to be a cardinal but at this time it's time I think it's better to look at other options to make sure it's the right fit for me," Snider announced on Twitter on July 31.

Snider was then courted by a number of major programs, including UCLA, Memphis, Illinois, and Marquette, before ultimately committing to play for the Illini. That was supposed to be the whole story, but on Wednesday, Illinois head coach John Groce did not receive Snider's expected letter of intent. Quentin's parents informed the Illinois staff this morning that their son had made the decision to stay home.

Even without Snider, Louisville's 2014 recruiting class has been rated as one of the nation's six best. That ranking will only improve after today.
