Rick Pitino’s 2013 recruiting class looks to be complete. However, things can always change. Pitino has even said this himself. Montrezl Harrell is a perfect example of how things can develop during the offseason. At this point, I’d say Louisville will not bring in any other players in 2013, but that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped following prospects.
According to Ryan Schmidt, the head coach at 22-Feet Academy, a prep school in Eastern Kentucky, Louisville is one of the many schools that have recently placed a phone call to inquire about MiKyle McIntosh, a 6-foot-6 225-pound prospect.

He attended Christian Faith High School in North Carolina when he first arrived in the states, but left the school when they had a coaching change.
