It appears Louisville fans are going to have a hard time picking a single player to chant for at the end of blowout wins this season.

Rick Pitino has added a fourth walk-on for the 2012-13 season in Manual High product Jordan Bond. Bond is the son of former Cardinal great, Phillip Bond.

As a senior in 2011-12, Jordan Bond helped lead Manual to a 19-11 record and a district championship. He also finished high school with a 3.7 GPA and scored a 30 on hos ACT.

Bond, who will wear No. 22 for the Cards, joins Tim Henderson, Michael Baffour and Logan Baumann as walk-ons on this year's team.

Bond's father, Phillip, was a tremendous point guard for U of L and was the MVP of the Midwest Region during Louisville's run to the Final Four in 1975. He still holds the Cardinal record for most assists in one NCAA Tournament (35), and his 14 assists against UCLA in the 1977 big dance was a single-game U of L record for 27 years before Francisco Garcia dished out 15 against Murray State in 2004.
