Snider signs with Louisville

Quentin Snider is headed home. After backing off a pledge to Louisville and committing to Illinois, the four-star lead guard opted to switch back to his hometown school. Snide signed with Louisville on Friday.

Quentin Snider made a signing week switch.

Snider, who committed to Louisville as a sophomore, decommitted in early August and committed to Illinois. Now two days into the first signing period, Snider is back on with the Cardinals.

According to a source, Snider, a standout at Louisville (Ky.) Ballard, has decommitted from Illinois and signed with his hometown school -- Louisville. The source says Louisville has already received his Letter of Intent.

A skilled guard, Snider is a shot maker from mid-range and three. He's also a quality passer, a high IQ guy and poised lead guard that understands the point guard position. Snider is ranked No. 32 overall in the class and is the No. 8 point guard.

With the addition of Snider, Louisville now has four top 100 prospects -- Shaqquan Aaron, Jaylen Johnson and Chinanu Onuaku. This bumps their recruiting class up to No. 5 overall in the 2014 class.

During Snider's junior season at Ballard, where he led the Bruins to the Kentucky Sweet 16 title game, the talented guard averaged 19.3 points and 4.5 assists a game.
