Louisville loses two 2018 recruits after recent incidents

Interim Louisville President Greg Postel said that head coach Rick Pitino has been placed on unpaid administrative leave, while athletic director Tom Jurich was placed on paid administrative leave.

Louisville will have to start back from scratch when it comes to recruiting the Class of 2018 after two players decommitted on Wednesday.

Five-star guard Anfernee Simons decommitted from the Cardinals with an announcement on Twitter while four-star guard Courtney Ramey is also moving on from Louisville according to multiple reports.

Before these decommitments, Louisville was in great position in the Class of 2018 with the Simons and Ramey as a potential future backcourt. Now that head coach Rick Pitino is on his way out from Louisville, they have to figure out its next head coach before addressing recruiting for the future.

With Auburn also losing five-star forward E.J. Montgomery on Wednesday, it has been a busy day for recruiting. It wouldn’t be surprising if other recruits from schools linked to the FBI scandal decide to open things up as well.
