McGusty lands offer from Louisville

Texas 2016 guard Kameron McGusty, who has risen up the recruiting rankings with a fabulous spring, confirmed on Friday night that he has landed an offer from the University of Louisville basketball staff. Check out the latest:

Four-star shooting guard Kameron McGusty, who is from Katy, Texas, said last week at the NBA Players Association Top 100 camp that he expected an offer from the University of Louisville sometime this summer.

Well, the Cardinals didn't wait until later.

The 6-foot-5 McGusty confirmed on Friday night that the Cardinals had extended him an offer. He adds it to the growing list of schools, which now totals over 20 coning after him.

"I've been building a really good relationship with coach Kenny (Johnson) that I am looking for when I pick a school," McGusty said. "They said they see a lot of potential in me at Louisville."

McGusty said he remains "very open" in the recruiting process and also mentioned Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Florida, Texas Tech, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Virginia Tech, USC, and Auburn.

"I'm really open now," he said.

But Louisville has made a quick and good impression. Johnson reached out about a month ago and McGusty said he's "really been coming at me hard," in recent weeks.

"Louisville thinks they can teach me into becoming a defensive stopper and I like that," he said. "I take pride in defense. I like doing something that a lot of other can't do."

McGusty, who had a solid day one at NBPA camp before an ankle injury, has seen his name rise in the national rankings because he's been competing at a high level. He averaged 23 points and 5.2 rebounds on the Under Armour Association circuit this spring.

And a lot of schools took notice.

"I hope to make some visits in August after I cut down my list," he said. "I don't know how many or who but I do know I will cut down my list sometime at the end of the summer.

McGusty is expected to visit Louisville in early August.
