I’ve heard nothing but good things from my Louisville Cardinal brethren about incoming 2018 combo guard Anfernee Simons, but considering that we’ve got a whole season ahead of us before he even gets here, I haven’t really given him much attention. Until yesterday, that is, and whoa, it appears that the hype is real boys and girls. He committed to Louisville last Fall as a 4 star prospect, but has since quickly risen to a legitimate 5 star rated as high as the 6th best player in the nation by 247Sports.
This information comes as a rare bit of good news for Louisville fans, and we’ll take every morsel we can get in these dark times of uncertainty (is that banner really coming down or not?!). Considering the sanctions that were handed down a short while ago and the current negative perception of the university, Rick Pitino’s hot recruiting streak is a bit head scratching, but awesome as a fan nevertheless.
6′ 3″ prospect Anfernee Simons is widely known as a great passer and phenomenal finisher at the rim, but he lately has also become one of the hottest shooters in his class which will be a welcome commodity for the Cards in 2018. Check out a pair of recent highlight videos that showcase his badass skill set:
