Palacios to Louisville?

6-foot-8 Tello Palacios is expected to announce his college decision next week and sources close to the situation indicate that the Cardinals are in great shape.

According to Jeff Goodman of, sources close to 6-foot-8 Tello Palacios indicate that the Top 30 senior will announce his intention to sign with Louisville next week.

Palacios, who has narrowed his choices to the Cardinals, Baylor and Florida State, had a productive meeting with University of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino on Thursday.

Palacios' recruitment has seemingly had many twists and turns along way. In late March, the native Columbian told Inside The Ville that the Seminoles were his leader. Shortly after the Nike Hoop Summit, reports indicated that the Bears had moved to the front of pack.

Palacios, one of the top three unsigned seniors in the country, participated in the Reebok Roundball Classic, the adidas Classic and the Hoop Summit this spring.

He averaged 23 points and 13 rebounds as a senior at Our Savior.
