6'8 forward Chad Millard, of Manchester, New Hampshire verbally committed to the University of Louisville Monday night, becoming the seventh prospect from the class of 2005 to cast his lot with the the Cardinals.

"I committed today," Millard told Inside The Ville just minutes after he verbally committed to the University of Louisville. "I talked with Coach Pitino on the phone this evening and he told me how much he wanted me to come there. He thinks it's a good fit and so do I. So we got it done."

Millard, an excellent three-point shooter who possesses good athleticism and has a considerable upside, said he was excited to end his recruitment with a verbal committment to Louisville, the school he always wanted to play for.

"I'm very excited about the commitment," Millard said. "Coach Pitino is coming up here soon to visit and I'll probably take an official visit to Louisville in October so I can watch them practice."

"I always wanted to go to Louisville and play for Coach Pitino and I think it's a great situation for me," continued Millard. "I'm going to work really hard next year and just come in and do anything I can do to contribute to the team."

Millard joins 7'0 Clarence Holloway, 6'7 Lamar Roberson, 5'11 Andre McGee, 6'9 Amir Johnson, 6'5 Terrence Williams, and 6'11 Jonathan Huffman in Pitino's blockbuster 2005 recruiting class. 6'11 David Padgett, a transfer from Kansas, will also be eligible for Louisville in the 2005-06 season.

Millard chose Louisville over Iowa State and Villanova and is already academically qualified to play as a freshman.
