Rick Pitino said the drama surrounding his personal life wouldn't affect recruiting.

He took a step toward proving it Tuesday by gaining a commitment from Zach Price -- a 6-foot-9 center Scout.com ranks as the 38th-best prospect in the Class of 2011. Price is the first recruit to commit to Louisville since Pitino publicly apologized for an affair that led to him giving money Karen Cunagin Sypher said she used to fund an abortion.

Price visited Louisville this past weekend.

He called Pitino and committed Tuesday night.

"I basically had a great feel about their school in June when I first visited and my second visit sealed the deal," Price told Scout.com. "What sealed the deal was we were taking pictures and Coach Pitino said, 'Come stand next to me because I'm going to be your coach.' ... I knew he was the coach for me."

Louisville now has three Class of 2011 prospects committed.

The others are Michael Chandler and Ryan Taylor.

Chandler is rated 13th in the Class of 2011.

Taylor is not ranked in the Top 100.

Pitino should get any recruit in the world.  I'm sure after he sleeps around with most of the Louisville women, he passes them on to his players and recruits.  Pitino is full of s*%#, and will say anything to get a recruit or an easy "dessert".

I think what he is trying to say is that he is surprised Pitino is landing good recruits after the scandal.  UNC landing top notch recruits is not big news. UNC always land good recruits.

Gary, why didn't you blog about James McAdoo committing to UNC a couple days ago? He's ranked #2 in the class of 2011, and they now have two 5-star commits in 2011. How do you ignore that?
