Four-star PG Quentin Snider flips from Illinois, signs with Louisville

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Friday was supposed to be a monster day in the world of recruiting – but it was expected to happen in the afternoon. And then on Friday morning, we had our second signing-week flip.

Quentin Snider, who had decommitted from Louisville back in the summer, reneged on his pledge to Illinois -- and is back with Louisville.

Snider signed his letter of intent to the Cardinals, his father confirmed to CBSSports.com.

The 6-foot-1 point guard from Ballard (Ky.) is ranked No. 51 in the 247Sports Composite. He originally committed to Louisville back in August of 2011, but decided to reopen things on July 31 of this year. Then in September, Snider chose Illinois over UCLA.

Once Jaquan Lyle decommitted from Louisville on September 14, though, the Cardinals needed a point guard again. And head coach Rick Pitino found one in Snider.

Scout.com first reported the news.
