THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
The class of 2014 is going to go down as one of the most interesting to ever cover. Friday morning, the nation's No. 31 player Quentin Snider signed with Louisville ending a roller coaster recruitment.
A product of Louisville (Kent.) Ballard, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the four-star point guard would want to play for Rick Pitino in his home town. But how he got there was a wild ride.
Snider initially committed to the Cardinals in August of 2011. Then, back in August of 2013 the 6-foot-1 floor general backed off of his pledge and started to look around.
Snider's quest to find a new home took him to Illinois. Exactly the point guard that John Groce and his staff were looking for, Snider seemed to be a perfect fit with the Illini.
Along came signing day where rather than signing with the Illini, sources say Snider and his family reached out to the Illinois staff and informed them that they were uneasy. His non signing started off a barrage of rumors that had him ending up back at Louisville and Friday morning sources confirm that he has now signed to play at Louisville.
Snider isn't a mind blowing athlete, but he is clever, quick and very versatile. He is a good shooter which makes him a real pain to defend in pick and roll situations and he's comfortable playing the role of scorer or distributor.
Prior to Snider's commitment, the Cardinals class already ranked No. 6 nationally. Now, they could move up a bit -- how far will depend on where some other big timers like the nation's top player Jahlil Okafor end up -- and enjoy a terrific class that includes Snider, No. 27 Shaqquan Aaron, No. 56 Jaylen Johnson and No. 65 Chinanu Onuaku.
