One of the most commonly heard phrases over the past couple of weeks has been that the first job for Louisville’s new head coach is going to be “recruiting the current roster.”

That task now belongs to Chris Mack, who met with the players for the first time on Tuesday and then saw them again today. Initial indications are that the first impression has been a good one, with Malik Williams already telling reporters that he plans to return for his sophomore season at U of L.

Darius Perry already feels like he has a hugging relationship with his new head coach.

Jordan Nwora, who was mentioned specifically by Mack during his introductory press conference, also had some positive things to say about the new direction at U of L.

If Mack can get all, or at least most, of these guys back, and then add in a solid grad transfer or class of 2018 recruit, the 2018-19 season has the potential to be way more fun than it seemed like it was going to be a couple months ago.
