One of the top players in the Class of 2017 has made his college decision. On Wednesday, four-star forward Jordan Nwora announced he has committed to Rick Pitino and the Louisville basketball program.
Nwora made his announcement on social media.
“Our plan was for me to wait until spring to make a commitment, Nwora wrote. “Coaches Pituno and Johnson visited several times and discussed their plans for me looking into the future. After visiting Louisville, I was overwhelmed with support from coaches, players, fans and the community. As a result of the combination of this support, the strength of the Louisville basketball program and academics, I have decided to commit to the University of Louisville.”

Nwora chose Louisville over the likes of Marquette, Georgia Tech, Northwestern and USC.
The 6-foot-8 Buffalo native is currently ranked as the No. 2 player in the state of New York and the No. 21-ranked small forward in the nation. It’s a great get for Pitino and his team looking into the future.
