Hughes, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard out of Garfield Heights (Ohio) High, committed to Louisville in late October and signed in November.
A three-star prospect, Hughes is known for his athleticism and long-range shooting.
Five-star wing V.J. King is Louisville's lone high school recruit in the 2016 recruiting class. The Cardinals do, however, hold a pledge from graduate transfer Tony Hicks and are actively pursuing other transfer options.
