John Lucas Camp: U of L targets recap

The third annual John Lucas Midwest Invitational was held at the Hoops complex in Louisville this weekend and Cardinal Authority was on hand. Here's a quick recap of some of the University of Louisville targets at the event.

CLASS OF 2014

Khadeem Latin,Houston, Texas, 6-9, 200: Smooth and skilled for his size. Latin was expected to make a visit this weekend while he was in town but didn't make it to campus because of NCAA rules. He said he's interested and U of L is starting to pick up their interest level. He mentioned Baylor and Arizona as leaders but said he's still "really open.

Jalen Lindsey, Franklin, Tenn., 6-4, 195: Lindsey has long been a U of L target and we saw him play on Saturday. He was solid – as usual – and appears to have gotten stronger in the offseason.

Jaquan Lyle, Evansville, Ind., 6-4, 170: Lyle made the trip to Big Blue Madness on Friday and has been to U of L several times. He has a long list but said three of the top schools are U of L, UK and Indiana.

Quentin Snider, Ballard, 6-1, 180: Snider has put on muscle and has improved his all-around skills even since the end of the summer when we saw him. He's a special player and really had a big-time effort in a matchup against top '14 guard JaQuan Lyle of Evansville, Ind.

CLASS OF 2015

Carlton Bragg, Cleveland, Ohio, 6-9, 180: Bragg's only offer at this point is West Virginia but his stock will soar. He was one of the better players at the camp. Louisville made a visit last week to his school and he was on campus Friday.

D.J. Williams, Chicago, 6-7, 190: U of L is just starting to try and get into the mix for the skilled, face-up four man.

CLASS OF 2016

Quentin Goodin, Taylor County, 6-2, 155: We can't imagine a better, all-around player in the '16 class statewide. He's been playing against older competition most of his life and it shows. You will hear a lot about him in the future. He made an unofficial recently to U of L.

SPECIAL MENTION

Reed Tellinghuisen, Sac City, Iowa, 6-5, 170: Not sure he'll ever be a U of L level target but the kid can flat fill it up. Hit six three-pointers in a row one game and came back the next with four in a row.
