According to ESPN’s Adam Finkelstein, four-star big man, Goodluck Okonoboh, has trimmed his list to five. Rick Pitino and the Cards did not make the cut. Okonoboh is reportedly down to Florida, Duke, Indiana, Ohio State & UNLV, in no particular order. The 6-foot-10, 240-pound prospect was actively being pursued by Louisville during the early part of the summer, however things dwindled off towards the end of July. Although Okonoboh has a lot of upside and is one of the better shot blockers in the 2014 class, I don’t think this is a terrible thing for Louisville. Rick Pitino and Kevin Keatts evaluated Okonoboh closely and although they still kept tabs on his, I don’t believe he was a top target. Louisville is currently in good shape with multiple big men in the 2014 class and I expect more visits will be scheduled throughout the month.
