Found January 27, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
Lamar Robbins, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound cornerback from Miami, Florida verbally pledged to South Florida head coach Willie Taggart this morning. Robbins took an official visit to Louisville last weekend. Robbins had been down to Louisville, South Florida and Oklahoma. He also had offers from Oklahoma, West Virginia and Purdue. Robbins also has offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan State, Indiana, Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh among others. Louisville recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt had been pursuing Robbins for quite some time, but unfortunately the Louisville staff came up short on this one. Robbins is the second recruit in just a week that has chose South Florida over Louisville. Defensive lineman Derrick Calloway was a Louisville commit when he visited last weekend, but flipped to USF on Monday. Willie Taggart is going to make it harder for Charlie Strong to lure recruits from the state of Florida.

Good Louisville shows up, dispatches Pitt 67-64

That’s the team we remember, the one missing in action for a week, one challenging every rotation of the basketball, digging deep, finding itself, dispatching the chess team back to the student activities center.
