The Cardinal Connect:
Louisville commit Shaqquan Aaron was one of the more impressive players at the NBPA Top 100 camp last week in Charlottesville, VA. His versatility and play making ability drew rave reviews and earned him a big climb in the 247 Sports Top 100 rankings. Aaron is now rated 14th best player in the 2014 class.
IAElites.com put together a solid mixtape with highlights from Aaron’s performance last week. The way things are looking right now, this may end up being Rick Pitino best recruiting class since he’s been at Louisville.
BEST OF MAXIM
Rick Pitino is the man — not only did the Louisville head basketball coach, you know, win a national championship this year, but he’s also having an incredible off-season. First, he had his horse race in the Kentucky Derby, then he caught an 80-pound Marlin in the Bahamas, and then Maker’s Mark created a commemorative bottle that features a nice picture of his face. What could...
Rick Pitino was a very happy man on Tuesday evening. Pitino and his son Ryan were in Los Angeles on Tuesday night for a Pitbull concert at the Hollywood Bowl. He was even lucky enough to sneak backstage after the show and meet Pitbull in person.
If you don’t understand the significance of this, Pitino made it very clear at the 2012 Louisville basketball tip-off luncheon that Pitbull...
I don’t think it’s out of line to say that if today were national signing day, 5-star combo guard JaQuan Lyle would sign a letter of intent with Louisville. Lyle is still considering multiple other schools, but Louisville certainly looks like the current leader. The Evansville native has visited multiple times and most recently brought his mother to Louisville for a visit.
It just keeps getting better for Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals. Pitino was off in Miami hanging out with Pitbull just a few days ago, and the Cardinals recently hung their championship banner in the Yum! Practice Facility. Now, the champs can order their pizza in a box that features the school logo.

Elbert Robinson, a 6-foot-10, 265-pound, prospect from Garland, TX., is one of the very few big men in the 2014 class that is being actively pursued by Rick Pitino and his staff.
Robinson has always been considered to be one of the top ten centers in the 2014 class, but that was mostly based on his massive size and potential.
At the NBAPA top 100 camp last week Robinson showed that...
Stephen Zimmerman, a 6-foot-11, center from Las Vegas, NV., has recently become one of the most talked about recruits in the country. Zimmerman is considered to be one of the top overall players in the 2015 class and the top center prospect.
Rick Pitino and his staff are the latest high level program to get involved with Zimmerman. The Las Vegas native was contacted by the Louisville...
