Malik Williams, the four-star power forward who Rick Pitino made his primary target in the 2017 recruiting class, has officially signed his letter of intent to play for Louisville next season.

Williams is the perfect example of the "pick-and-pop" power forward who can knock down the outside shot that Pitino has spent a solid chunk of the offseason saying he wants to bring to U of L. The Fort Wayne native is currently rated as the No. 21 overall player in the 2017 class by Scout.com.

The other three members of Louisville's 2017 class -- Darius Perry, Jordan Nwora and Lance Thomas -- are all expected to sign their letters of intent before the end of the week. Nwora is expected to sign during a ceremony at his school Friday afternoon.
