The University of Louisville has one final spot on the roster for next basketball season and will be hosting a high school prospect in the coming weeks who could take the spot on the Cardinals' roster.
Former UNLV commitment Christian Vital narrowed his list to five schools recently and his AAU coach, Terrence "Munch" Williams, confirmed that he would make an official visit to Louisville. (Updated: Vital is now scheduled to visit U of L next weekend when head coach Rick Pitino is back in town).
"Sometime later this month is the plan," Williams said.
The 6-foot-2 three-star guard is also considering Marquette, Connecticut, Iowa and Alabama.
Vital had been committed to UNLV but didn't sign after a coaching change and re-opened his recruitment last month. U of L assistant coach Kenny Johnson saw Vital at a prep school event last month.
He played at St. Thomas Moore School in Oakdale, Conn. Vital was one of the top players in the prestigious NEPSAC this year, and he helped lead St. Thomas More to a runner up finish.
"I don't want to speak for (Louisville) but I think part of it is they see his ability to play aggressive and his will to win," Williams said. "He's improved and is versatile. He has the ability to play on or off the ball and schools like that."
