Louisville commit Quentin Snider has done an about-face nearly two years to the day after pledging to the Cardinals and head coach Rick Pitino.
According to multiple reports on Wednesday afternoon, Snider, a 6-foot-1 point guard, a native of Louisville and a star at Ballard High School, has decommitted from Louisville and will open up his recruitment.
Minnesota was the first school to offer him after the decommitment, according to Jody Demling. That makes sense considering Minnesota coach Richard Pitino recruited Snider at Louisville.
“That’s really important,” Jerrid Dorsey told SNY.tv Wednesday. “At the end of the day, that’s what he wants to do. That’s where he feels his future is. He really believes he has it in himself to to become a great point guard.”
Dorsey is a natural scorer and is listed as a shooting guard by the major recruiting services, but the Bellflower (CA) St. John Bosco guard has always been a floor general.
