Morton said that one of the important things for Telfair (No. 8, TheInsiders.com) was Rick Pitino's reputation for letting guys earn freedom.
"I kind of think that we do a lot of things Rick Pitino does," Morton said of his team's philosophy. "One thing Pitino does is give him freedom and with that freedom I can see him doing a lot of special things as a freshman."
If anyone has ever earned "freedom" before he enters college, it's Telfair. A gifted point man with great vision, Telfair has won a lot of games on the high school level. He takes care of the ball, prides himself in assists and does what it takes to win. He's a big time talent.
Louisville, behind the scenes, had seemingly led for a long time. "I think there was someone close but if he didn't want to talk about other schools [neither do I] so I'll leave it alone. It was more of a style of play thing."
Call it what you wish, but it's a big day for Cardinal fans everywhere. Last season, Telfair led Lincoln to the state championship as he averaged 29 points a game. He is the cousin of Stephon Marbury and a two-time MVP of the adidas ABCD All-Star game.
