Louisville is still working on its 2012 recruiting class. On Wednesday, though, the Cardinals got an early start with their 2013 efforts.
"I had so many other great schools and opportunities, but at the end of the day I loved everything about Louisville," Gill told Rivals.com. "I loved the facilities, I loved the town and I really love the way coach Pitino coaches and his system."
A 6-foot-2 shooting guard who is a junior at Raleigh (N.C.) Ravenscroft School, Gill had been a major target of Pitino and assistant Kevin Keatts who worked hard to get him on campus for early visits.
A natural scorer with good quickness, Gill has a fluid all-around game on the offensive end. He shoots with tremendous range, can smoke mid range pull-ups and is a sneaky athlete and finisher at the rim.
"I think I'm a pretty skilled guard. I can knock down open shots, I make good decisions and I can find the open man," said Gill. "Defensively I get after people and I really think I fit the way they play
While Gill is more of a two guard, his handle and decision making are good enough that he can slide over and play some at the point if needed.
"They've talked about me sliding over and playing some one," said the junior of his future in Louisville. "But they've also talked about me being a combo and just using me wherever I'm needed.
"But I can definitely play the one if needed. Just the teams I'm on have had really good point guards."
Gill -- who runs with N.C. based Garner Roads during the summer -- is a four-star prospect and ranks No. 43 overall in the 2013 Rivals150.
