Courtney Ramey visiting Louisville Tuesday

The prodigal recruit returns.

The latest twist in the ever-winding recruiting saga of Courtney Ramey has arrived, and it’s a positive one for Louisville fans.

The top-ranked class of 2018 point guard still on the market, Ramey checked in at No. 31 on the final 247 Sports top 100 rankings last week. He is also being heavily pursued by Texas and Missouri, among others. He had previously been viewed by many to be a Villanova lean before the Wildcats signed Jahvon Quinerly.

Ramey committed to Louisville on Feb. 3, 2017 but decommitted once the FBI stuff broke last fall. He remained interested in the Cardinals throughout U of L’s tumultuous 2017-18 season, and now appears to be seriously interested in re-entering the fold. There was some concern over that desire after Chris Mack and his staff’s scheduled visit to see Ramey was called off at the last second last week due to Courtney having to leave earlier than expected for the Allen Iverson All-Star Game.

This is a true point guard who can help you right away next season and likely for at least a couple of seasons after that. Let’s get this recruiting mojo going.
