4-star shooting guard Brandon Randolph, a top 40 player in the Class of 2017, made an unofficial visit to Louisville on Monday

Westtown, Pa., four-star shooting guard Brandon Randolph made an unofficial visit to the University of Louisville on Monday. The Cardinals are one of many schools showing a lot of interest in Randolph.

Westtown, Pa., four-star shooting guard Brandon Randolph has been keeping his recruitment fairly quiet.

At the NBPA Top 100 Camp two weeks ago, Randolph gave out a long list of schools but declined to go into detail about any schools showing him the most interest. He said he had visits set up, but didn't want his list to get out.

On Monday, Randolph made one of those visits.

The 6-foot-5 Randolph, who is ranked as the No. 38 player in the Class of 2017, was on the University of Louisville's campus for an unofficial visit. He has also recently taken an unofficial visit to Villanova.

"It's great because I get a bunch of phone calls every day basically, or texts, saying how you doing Brandon and just checking up on me," he said. "All of these schools are just trying to look out for me and that's nice."

Randolph's offer list includes: U of L, Villanova, Maryland, Indiana, North Carolina, Oregon, Syracuse, Kansas, Arizona, Connecticut, Wake Forest and many others. He's considered the No. 6 point guard in the country.

Louisville has seemingly made Randolph a top priority in the '17 class.

"Louisville is always texting me and sending mail," he said. "They're showing a lot of interest in me, just like every other school."

Randolph is from Yonkers, N.Y., and grew up watching former U of L player Russ Smith. Randolph was coached when he was younger by Russ Smith Sr., and recently was cast as the younger Smith in a trailer movie titles “Underrated” that the elder Smith is trying to make about his son.

He said at the NBPA Top 100 camp that Louisville was "definitely in the mix."

"Location isn't a huge factor but style of play and academics are big," he said. "I want to go to school where they help me with what I want to major in - accounting. I just want to make sure I pick the right school."

Randolph, who is averaging 16.5 points in the four EYBL sessions, has hit 37 of 92 from three-point range during his two events with the PSA Cardinals. He's expected to make a decision in August.

Louisville is expected to evaluate Randolph next weekend at the Nike Peach Jam.
