ESPN No. 91 ranked high school senior Jordan Nwora has committed to Louisville.


The 6-8 forward out of Vermont Academy (Saxtons River, VT) averaged 14.6 points and 6.1 rebounds on 39 percent shooting from three for a loaded Nike EYBL Rens team that also featured No. 11 Sr Hamidou Diallo.


“After visiting Louisville, I was overwhelmed with support from coaches, players, fans and the community,” Nwora said via Twitter. “As a result of the combination of this support, the strength of the Louisville basketball program and academics, I have decided to commit to the University of Louisville.”


His father Alex Nwora said Cardinals coach Rick Pitino was a key factor in his son’s decision to choose the school.


“He wants to go somewhere he can be coached the right way and he saw that in Coach Pitino and his attention to detail,” Alex Nwora told the Courier-Journal. “For the head coach to have that passion, Jordan decided that’s where he wanted to go.”


Pitino and assistant coach Kenny Johnson also told Nwora that he would play right away.


“They just told me coming in as a freshman I can make a big impact and play a lot of minutes and score a lot of points, which is what I do,” Nwora told Scout.


At Louisville, Nwora will join fellow 2017 recruits No. 41 Malik Williams and No. 53 Darius Perry.


The Cardinals beat out the likes of Cal, NC State, USC, Utah, and Marquette to land Nwora.
