Louisville pulled in an experienced guard commitment on Saturday as Richmond graduate transfer Khwan Fore pledged to the Cardinals.

The 6-foot-0 Fore was a double-figure scorer for the Spiders the past two seasons as he averaged 11.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game during 2017-18.

With Louisville in desperate need of scholarship players, and experienced players, Fore is a quality pickup who should be able to provide some steady minutes in the Louisville backcourt. Fore was originally committed to Tennessee last month, but he opted to open up his recruitment, allowing Louisville to make a late move for him.

Although the Cardinals return sophomore guard Darius Perry, Fore’s commitment gives them much more depth and stability in the backcourt while also allowing for the possibility of some potential two-guard lineups.
