Terrance Farley Update

<B>ITV RECRUITING EXCLUSIVE</b> -- Pleasure Park High School coach Larry Kihnley provided ITV with an update on 6'10 University of Louisville commit Terrance Farley on Thursday. Farley's made some impressive strides recently and we've also included news of two talented freshman that have arrived for the Panthers this season.

6'10 Terrance Farley of Louisville PRP committed to Coach Pitino and the University of Louisville last February, becoming the first player to verbally commit from the class of 2004.

Since then, the athletic center has spent enough time on the UofL campus that he's become quite familiar with both the UofL players and coaches.

That fact, more than anything else, explains why Farley and Pitino haven't scheduled an in-home or official campus visit yet, as Louisville's coach has embarked on a nation-wide tour to round out what promises to be a blockbuster recruiting class in 2004.

According to Pleasure Ridge Park assistant coach Larry Kihnley, Farley will likely schedule his in-home and campus visits at some point this fall but noted that Farley had become quite comfortable with his surroundings and the folks at UofL that it's not a presing issue for either side right now.

PRP, which has been weight training and conditioning three days per week, will start to get after it this coming Monday. Next week, the Panthers begin running and conditioning every day in preparation for the upcoming season.

Kihnley said the Panthers have been doing heavy lifting recently and the once reed-thin Farley is now up to a strong 215 pounds. Farley played last season in the 195-200 pound range.

"He'll probably lose some of that weight next week once we start running every day," Kihnley said. "But we think he can play at 205 pounds this coming season."

PRP will welcome two talented freshman into their program this fall, 6'1 Kevin Ardis and 6'0 Nick Reynolds, according to Kihnley.

At 200 pounds, Ardis also plays tailback for the Panther football team, and while talented on the hardwood, Kihnley indicated his future probably lies on the gridiron.

Reynolds was the MVP at one of this summer's UofL camp sessions and was named the top playmaker that particular week.

Stan tuned to ITV for future updates on Farley and the PRP basketball program.
