Louisville's Rick Pitino showed again Tuesday that his program hasn't been damaged by issues away from the court by gaining another commitment from a consensus top 50 national recruit -- this time in-state standout Chane Behanan.

"I’m committing to Louisville," Behanan told Scout.com recruiting analyst Evan Daniels. “I felt comfortable there. I just bonded real well with the team and the coaches. ... I just based it all off my comfort zone and the location."

Scout.com ranks Behanan 29th nationally in the Class of 2011. He's the fourth prospct to commit to Louisville. The others are Wayne Blackshear (No. 12), Zach Price (No. 53) and Ryan Taylor (unranked), and most recruiting analysts believe Quincy Miller (No. 2) and Deuce Bello (No. 32) could join the group within the next week to give the Cards a six-player class that would probably rank second only to Kentucky's class featuring Anthony Davis (No. 1), Mike Gilchrist (No. 5), Marquis Teague (No. 6) and Kyle Wiltjer (No. 19).

"as always, you're just the red-headed (illegitimate) step-children"

Which is worse: Acting childish far into your adult life, or not even being aware of it whilst simultaneously embarrasing an entire state?

Add Behanan's picture into the leftovers poster we're making for the 2011-12 UK-Louisville game.  It's going to have an old English L and pictures of the entire Louisville recruiting class.  Plus Quincy Miller in a UK shirt doing the John Wall dance.  23-16

Continue to rake in the one and dones and never win a National title. Hell you haven't made a Final 4 since when. So Calimari can get the top recruits. Just can't get them to win the big one for him.

Enjoy all those double-digit ranked recruits, Loserville, while we continue to rake in the SINGLE-digit recruits.....as always, you're just the red-headed (illegitimate) step-children in this state.

Thanks, Villian.  Was wondering because I knew they didn't lose that many players after last year.  Congrats on Behanan.

Max 6 Scholly's for 2011. Our roster is mis leading because some of Our Walkon's were awarded 1 year Scholly's for 2010.

Division 1 schools are allotted 13 full scholarships that include six things, 1. Tuition 2. room 3. Board 4. Books 5. Fees and 6. Living stipend (changes due to standard of living in each county that the school is in)

Each scholarship is a one year renewable committment and as long as Louisville's graduation rates don't drop below the mandated level and that they are not on probabation then it is safe to assume that they have all 13. You can not (in division 1) break up a scholarship, so if you give a kid $1.00 in athletic aid it counts as a full scholarship

How many scholarships does U of L have?  This is a serious question.  Just wondering.
