As expected, Chris Jones, a 5-foot-11 point guard from Northwest Florida State junior college gave Louisville a verbal commitment this morning. Jones took an official visit over the weekend and made it no secret that Louisville was the clear cut favorite.
Jones was originally a member of the 2011 class and was considered to be a top-50 prospect. He had signed with Tennessee, but had trouble qualifying, which led to his enrollment at Northwest Florida. In his first year of JUCO ball, Jones averaged 18 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game leading his team to a National Junior College Athletic Association runner-up finish.
Jones chose Louisville over Baylor, Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Florida State. The addition of Jones gives Louisville a very guard heavy 2013 class with top 100 combo guards Anton Gill and Terry Rozier currently committed. I think the staff will try to add at least one more player in 2013.

Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino turns 60-years-old today. I’d like to wish Coach Pitino a very happy birthday. I can only assume that this was the birthday present that he received from his team.
60 should be a special year for Coach Pitino. Entering the 2012-13 season, Pitino has what is likely the most talented team since he’s been the coach here at Louisville.
