Louisville basketball hosts pair of five-star visitors

The Chris Mack recruiting train rolls on.

Chris Mack and his staff hosted two highly-touted class of 2021 prospects Sunday for Louisville’s exhibition game against Bellarmine.

Khristian Lander, a 6-foot-1 guard from Evansville, IN. The 14th ranked prospect by 247Sports currently holds offers from Ohio State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Purdue, and most recently an offer from Kansas that he received Friday after an unofficial visit.

In late-August, Lander unofficially visited Louisville for the first time. Sunday, he took his second unofficial as he watched the Cards defeat Bellarmine, 71-60.

Aminu Mohammed, a 6-foot-5 wing out of Washington, DC. In 2016, Mohammed came to the states from Nigeria and enrolled at Archbishop Carroll.

After a winless 2016-2017 season, Mohammed quickly became a key contributor, averaging 19 points and 10 rebounds a game while helping Carroll to a 17-13 record. Mohammed recorded 16 double-doubles on the season and had a game high of 35 points in a league game. Clearly an impactful player.

The 10th ranked prospect in the class of 2021 by 247Sports only holds two offers, Florida and Towson. Louisville started recruiting Mohammed recently as assistant coach Mike Pegues saw him this month.

As for Mohammed, CardChronicle caught up with him after today’s exhibition to get his thoughts on his first ever visit to Louisville.

“The fans are really supportive, and I enjoyed the game,” Mohammed said.

He also added that he spoke with the staff about the academic side of things and all about athletics at the school.

Mohammed and his guardian Shawn Harmon were on campus this morning prior to today’s game and in Mohammed’s words, “I really liked the campus.”

As for an offer, Chris Mack currently hasn’t extended any 2021 scholarship offers just yet. Expect Lander and Mohammed to be two prospects in that class to keep an eye out on.
