“I just liked the program,” he said by phone. “They had good success for a while now. Coach [Rick] Pitino is a tough coach. He’s going to push me to work hard, push me to the next level. I liked what Francisco [Garcia] did and what Pitino did for Francisco.”
Garcia, a role model and close family friend of Nunez’s, played at Louisville and is now with the Sacramento Kings.
Nunez said he actually committed a week ago, but made it official today after Louisville assistants Steve Masiello and Tim Fuller visited the gym along with coaches from several other schools, including Marquette and West Virginia.
