Louisville offers 2018 post player

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino made a visit to see one of the top 2018 prospects on the East Coast and later on Friday night Pitino offered a scholarship to that prospect - Nazreon Reid.

The University of Louisville basketball team has only offered four prospects in the Class of 2018.

And the fourth came on Friday night after U of L coach Rick Pitino spent time on his 63rd birthday at Roselle, N.J., Catholic High School watching '18 post player Nazreon Reid, who is considered one of the top prospects on the East Coast.<.p>

The 6-foot-9, 225-pound already had offers from Kansas, Georgetown, Wichita State, Oklahoma, LSU, Virginia, Maryland, Iowa, Seton Hall, St. John's Connecticut and Syracuse.

Reid was recently named to the USA Basketball men's Junior National Team roster. He will take part in the team's minicamp from Oct. 2 to Oct. 4 at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

In the '18 class, the Cardinals have also offered Brentwood, Tenn., guard Darius Garland, Sarasota, Fla., shooting guard Emmanuel Lambright and Tempe, Ariz., power forward Marvin Bagley.
