Louisville adds former Virginia Tech signee Montrezl Harrell
Louisville has added a Top 100 player for this coming season. The Cardinals secured a commitment from former Virginia Tech signee Montrezl Harrell -- which means Rick Pitino may have the top team in the land entering the 2012-13 campaign.
Montrezl Harrell has, according to sources, committed to Louisville and that could mean the Cardinals have a legitimate case to be the No. 1 team in the country prior to next season.
The 6-foot-8 Harrell gives Rick Pitino and the Cardinals more depth on the frontline -- which already includes Gorgui Dieng and Chane Behanan.
Louisville, which went to the Final Four this past season, also returns senior point guard Peyton Siva, Russ Smith, Rakeem Buckles, a healthy Wayne Blackshear, Kevin Ware and will add George Mason transfer Luke Hancock.
That gives Pitino -- who will have to replace Kyle Kuric, Chris Smith and Jared Swopshire (transferred to Northwestern) off last year's team -- as much quality depth as just about any team in the country.
Harrell is strong and athletic power forward from North Carolina who de-committed from Virginia Tech following the departure of coach Seth Greenberg. Harrell spent this past season at Hargrave Military Academy (Va.), the program that Kevin Keatts coached prior to coming to Louisville.
