Louisville has extended a scholarship offer to 2019 top 20 prospect Joey Baker

The University of Louisville basketball staff has evaluated 2019 Fayetteville, N.C., Trinity Christian School small forward Joey Baker each of the past two weekends, including head coach Rick Pitino watching him on Sunday.

U of L's staff evidently feels like Baker is a prospect that can help the Cardinals.

On Sunday night, the 6-foot-6 Baker was offered by the Cardinals. He already had over a dozen offers, including from Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Kansas, St. John's and Boston College.

Baker is ranked as the No. 20 prospect in the '19 class. He averaged 13.5 points a game as a freshman and then hit for 17.2 points a game as a sophomore for Trinity Christian.
