Louisville 'still in there' with Florida big

The University of Louisville basketball staff has been tracking Miami, Fla., Norland power forward Dewan Huell for almost two years and the Cardinals are "still in there," according to Huell. The Miami, Fla., Norland big man updates his recruitment.

The University of Louisville has been mentioned with a lot of prospects in the Class of 2016, including a few new names on the Cardinals' radar in recent weeks.

But one name that has been a mainstay is Dewan Huell.

The 6-foot-9 forward from Miami, Fla., Norland High School has been on the U of L radar for two years and said last week the Cardinals are "still in there" when it comes to his recruitment.

"I still don't have a favorite," Huell said. "At least, not at this point. I like a lot of schools.

Huell is ranked No. 20 in the Scout.com top 100 and narrowed his list in the spring to U of L, Florida, Florida State, Kansas, LSU, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame, South Carolina and South Florida.

Last week, Huell said he could be looking at some others. He's expected to trim his list sometime "real soon."

"Coach (Mike Balado) keeps in touch with me," Huell said. "We talk a lot and I like Louisville."

Huell said Florida State and Miami have made him a priority.
