Pitino one player away from top class

The recruiting world is similar to the real world in many ways. The Louisville Cardinals and Rick Pitino are proof of the adage "the rich get richer." Louisville just picked up its fifth commitment of the Class of 2008 with the addition of Jared Swopshire, a 6-foot-7, 195-pound forward out of IMG in Bradenton, Fla. Swopshire is a long, versatile forward and will be the beneficiary of the rigorous individual improvement programs that Pitino and his staff are famous for and thus should develop into a very productive player for the Cards.
