There was a lot of confusion last night regarding Louisville recruit Richard Benjamin. The Tampa native had an in home visit with a Louisville assistant coach. last night. Following the visit, he went to Twitter saying he had verbally committed to Louisville. Jayson Roberts, Benjamin’s coach at Tampa Bay Technical High School spoke last night with TampaBayOnline.com also saying that Benjamin had committed to Louisville. Apparently even though Benjamin has a scholarship offer from Louisville and has made it very clear that he wants to be a Cardinal, he at this time is not a member of Louisville’s 2013 class. Charlie Strong personally has to accept each commitment before it becomes official. Benjamin wasn’t on Louisville’s radar until the end of the regular season. Therefore Strong hasn’t actually seen him play. Benjamin has an impressive offer list and would be a great addition to the Louisville class in my opinion, but it doesn’t look like it’ll be official until Strong says so.
