Angel Nunez (Bronx, N.Y./Notre Dame Prep) committed to Louisville on Thursday night, becoming the fifth player to pledge to Rick Pitino in the Class of 2011. Louisville assistant coaches Steve Masiello and Tim Fuller were both in the Notre Dame Prep gym earlier in the afternoon, among several coaches on hand for the team's open gym. Nunez exploded onto the national scene in the summer of 2009 as high-major coaches seemingly lined up by the dozens because of the 6-foot-8 swingman's potential. But since that time the New York native has been unable to turn that potential into production with any type of consistency, causing some of those original suitors to lose interest and his national ranking to fall.
