I’ll admit that I wasn’t too impressed with Rentz’s junior highlights and I was a little worried that they were reaching a bit for him. That changed a few weeks ago when I saw his senior year film. There’s a distinct difference when it comes to his speed and instincts. He looks like much more of a space player who can outrun people. He can do some really nice things in tight spaces which should help him turn short passes in the middle of the field into longer gains. As good as Tutu Atwell is, Louisville doesn’t have a guy that has shown the ability to make someone miss in those tight spots. Rentz could be that type of player down the road.


Rentz is another player who visited in May during a time when the staff got a bunch of guys they were targeting on campus. It took a couple of weeks for him to commit but he’s stood firm since he made his choice. UofL is a little crowded in the slot but they definitely got a guy who can make an impact down the road.
