Vermont Academy standout Jordan Nwora made an official visit to Louisville over the weekend; his father says the Cards are 'way up there'

Vermont Academy standout Jordan Nwora made an official visit to the University of Louisville over the weekend. His father, Alex, says the Cards are 'way up there' for the 2017 prospect.

The father of Vermont Academy forward Jordan Nwora recently said his son would wait until April to make a decision on where he'll attend college.

But after a weekend visit to the University of Louisville, Alex Nwora said the family is "trying to digest everything."

"It's tough when you say you are going to wait to make a decision," Alex Nwora said. "But we are trying to digest everything and see where we go from here. If he went to Louisville, it's a win-win situation for both.

"Right now, with everything considered Louisville is way up there for Jordan."

The 6-foot-7 Nwora recently narrowed his list to 12 schools and his only other official visit was to Georgia Tech. He's ranked as a three-star prospect and considered a big-time shooting threat.

The elder Nwora, who is the head coach at Erie Community College, said the visit to Louisville was "really good."

"It went great," he said. "Jordan really liked it and my wife really liked it. He was able to see how coach Pitino teaches and he really liked the facilities and the players. We went to the football game and saw how great the people treat (the players).

"He felt like Louisville might be the place for him. But this is a process."

U of L assistant coach Kenny Johnson went to see Nwora three weeks ago and the Cardinals offered him a scholarship. Pitino has been to see him twice and also made an in-home visit to Buffalo, N.Y. to meet with Nwora's parents.
