Agau goes with Louisville

Akoy Agau is headed to Louisville. During an in-home visit the talented power forward out of Nebraska made his college choice.

Rick Pitino and Louisville picked up their fourth commitment for the 2013 class on Wednesday.

Akoy Agau, a standout at Omaha (Neb.) Central, committed to Louisville during an in-home visit. Agau's coach and mentor Scott Hammer confirmed the news.

"We were at dinner and when we got done with dinner we watched a video and he texted me while we were watching and he texted me and said that my gut was telling me it is right," Hammer said.

"We were sitting around and he was talking to his girlfriends mom," he added. "Then he went out side with my wife and I could tell he had made a decision. It was a gut feeling. It's Louisville what is there not to like."

Agua also considered Georgetown and West Virginia, prior to committing to Louisville. The 6-foot-8 power forward, took an official visit to Louisville last week. Hammer said the trip helped him come to a decision.

"Yeah, I think so," he said. "Just seeing what they have to offer and getting the feel of Louisville and the campus and their arena and their players and seeing what kind of guys they are and how they work played a big part in it I think."

"You could tell he was very excited and he felt like a big weight had been lifted off of his shoulders," Hammer said. "He was ready and it felt right and he pulled the trigger."

A native of Sudan, Agau has helped Central to three straight state championships.

Louisville now holds commitments from four players in the 2013 class. To go with Agau, Louisville has four-star recruits Anton Gill, Terry Rozier and JUCO standout Chris Jones on board.

With Agau's commitment, Louisville jumps to No. 2 in the Scout.com's 2013 recruiting class rankings, trailing only Florida.
