—Pierce Clarkson talks about his latest visit to The Ville.
“It wasn’t about me,” Clarkson said. “Friday was just about other guys like Duce (Robinson) and Kyngstonn (Viliamu-Asa) and Peyton (Woodyard) and some other guys to get to see the city again and get them back on campus and meet the staff and just have a chance to see what’s going on at Louisville.”
On Friday, Clarkson and his crew were recruiting a number of prospects, including Pinnacle, Ariz., top 20 ‘23 prospect Duce Robinson, who made a visit and is considering U of L, USC, Texas, and Oregon. Woodyard and Viliamu-Asa are four-star prospects from St. John Bosco along with Marcelles Williams.
Louisville had more than 30 total prospects on campus Friday and Clarkson said “it was a great time.”
“I think all of those guys had a good time and I don’t know what they are going to do, but I think being there on Friday improved the chances (for Louisville),” Clarkson said. “They saw what the staff is doing, what is going on around the program, all the good things there are at Louisville. They had a chance to see all of that.”
