Newly-hired Louisville coach Chris Mack is fighting to get former Cardinal commit Courtney Ramey back with the Cardinals.
Mack made the first cutoff Thursday, with Louisville being in a top 10 that Ramey unveiled on Instagram.

Illinois, Oregon, SMU, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Ohio State, Missouri, Minnesota and Texas round out the top 10. Ramey has been visited by seven of the other schools’ coaches since February.
Ramey is ranked as the No. 9 point guard and No. 40 overall player in the country, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. The St. Louis native committed to Louisville in February 2017, but decommitted later that year in September. Former UofL coach Rick Pitino had visited Ramey four times before being fired for his connection to the FBI’s probe into college basketball.
The Cardinals do not have any commitments thus far for the Class of 2019. They have four scholarships to fill following Ray Spalding’s decision to remain in the NBA Draft pool.
