Rozier soars up the rankings

University of Louisville basketball signee Terry Rozier has made headlines in recent weeks for his high-scoring games. Now, Rozier has made the biggest jump in the updated Class of 2013 rankings. Cardinal Authority has the latest.

Terry Rozier, fresh off a 68-point effort for his Chatham, Va., Hargrave Military Academy team on Saturday night, has jumped 68 spots in the updated Class of 2013 national rankings.

Rozier, who has signed with the University of Louisville, jumped from the No. 83 position into the No. 15 position in the rankings. He's not a five-star prospect and one of the highest-rated players signed during the Rick Pitino-era at U of L.

The 6-foot-2 Rozier averages over 30 points a game for Hargrave after scoring 68 against Action Sports Academy on Saturday at Iroquois High School in the Louisville High School HoopFest and then going for 38 on Sunday in a game.

"Rozier earned his bump with his terrific play," national analyst Evan Daniels said. "He's gotten more athletic; is a very good shooter and has made drastic improvements to his overall game."

Rozier originally signed with U of L in the Class of 2012 but didn't make it academically. He wasn't ranked in the top 75 of that class but has shown drastic improvement during his time at Hargrave. He's originally from Shaker Heights, Ohio, and played four years of high school ball there.

Rozier isn't the only U of L signee ranked.

Hargrave guard Anton Gill is now ranked as the No. 46 players in the class. The other signee – Nebraska forward Akoy Agau is not ranked.
