Russ Smith’s father has informed Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports that his son will return to Louisville for his senior season. We’ll find out for sure around 1 PM when Rick Pitino and Russ Smith meet with the local media.
Goodman’s article claims that Russ was told that he could greatly improve his draft stock by sticking around for another year and improving his decision making.
Like many of you, I would have preferred that Russ’ dad let his son have his moment to share the news with everyone, but oh well.
TheCardinalConnect.com will have live stream video of the press conference at 1 PM.
