Talented Chicago juniors visit U of L

Two of Chicago's finest basketball prospects made a visit to U of L for the Cardinals win over Memphis on Saturday.

Two of Chicago's finest high school prospects, 7-foot Clarence Holloway and 6-foot-seven Jeremiah Bryant made visits to Louisville for the Cardinals game Saturday against Memphis.

Holloway, who verbally committed to Louisville last December, and Bryant attended the game with former Fenger High School head coach Andre Peay. They sat in the section below athletic director Tom Jurich's luxury box and appeared to enjoy the crowd and the game.

Holloway still has a cast on his right wrist after tearing ligaments late in his junior season. He averaged 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks per game prior to the season ending injury.

Bryant, who teamed with Holloway at Fenger before transferring to Harlan, was forced to sit his entire junior season after transferring. An athletic forward, Bryant is an excellent defender and rebounder and is especially adept at blocking shots.

Both Holloway and Bryant attended Coach Pitino's basketball camp last June.

We'll have more on their visits later.

Also, several U of L football prospects attended Saturday's game, including Maurice Grinter and Chris Todd.
