With one final scholarship to play with for the 2020-21 season, Louisville went out and landed a commitment from Gabe Wiznitzer. A 3-star center, Wiznitzer will reclassify to the 2020 class; he plans to take a redshirt his freshman season, too.
Wiznitzer played his prep basketball for Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. 247 Sports slots the 6-foot-11, 240-pound Wiznitzer as the No. 132 overall prospect in the 2020 class, according to their composite rankings.
Assistant coach Dino Gaudio led the recruitment process for Louisville, which won out over a list of other programs. Wiznitzer also had offers from Clemson, Iowa, LSU, Pittsburgh and West Virginia, among others.
Next season, Wiznitzer will be able to take part in Louisville’s conditioning program, while also practicing against one of the best two-way bigs in college hoops — Malik Williams.
Wiznitzer’s commitment brings Louisville’s 2020 class now to three-deep in terms of prep players. The Cards already signed 4-star prospects D’Andre Davis and JJ Traynor. Louisville also had a commitment from Jay Scrubb, the No. 1 2020 JUCO prospect; however, Scrubb elected to hire an agent and enter the NBA Draft.
Earlier in the offseason, Louisville also landed to impact grad transfers: Carlik Jones, a potential star guard from Radford, and Charles Minlend from San Francisco.
