Rick Pitino picked up his fourth pledge of the 2017 class with the addition of four-star recruit Lance Thomas.

Four-star recruit Lance Thomas verbally committed to Louisville on Sunday, he told Scout. 

"[Rick] Pitino was very confident and their style of play and me playing multiple positions on their offense really, made me confident in the them," Thomas said when asked about his decision.

Thomas, a 6-foot-10 forward, officially visited on October 22nd. He also took visits to and considered Florida, Miami and USC. 

When did Thomas know Louisville was the place for him?

"As soon as I stepped on campus," he said. 

With the addition of Thomas, Louisville moves to No. 7 in Scout's 2017 recruiting class rankings.

Thomas joins a class that also consists of five-star forward Malik Williams, Darius Perry and Jordan Nwora.
