UofL BASKETBALL | Rick Pitino the point man on Alex O'Connell recruitment

07/26/2016 08:30 PM

Alex O’Connell is a 6-foot-5 wing that picked up a Louisville basketball offer after the first live recruiting period of the month, and has since skyrocketed up the Rick Pitino priority list. O’Connell has nearly three dozen scholarship offers, Louisville is the presumed front-runner after Pitino took it upon himself to be the primary recruiter.

Alex O’Connell has a upcoming visit schedule to U of L, and apparently also has a bluegrass basketball connection from his father’s playing days at Murray State University.
