The Louisville Cardinals added to its already large 2014 recruiting class on Monday afternoon as Egyptian 7-foot-2 center Anas Osama Mahmoud gave a commitment to head coach Rick Pitino.
Mahmoud is currently attending West Oaks Academy in Orlando, Florida and is averaging 17 points, 12 rebounds and 3.5 blocked shots per game.
The news of Mahmoud’s commitment was first reported by Jody Demling of Scout.com’s Cardinal Authority.
Mahmoud picked Louisville over Auburn, Georgia Tech, Florida and Minnesota, per Demling, and he joins a Louisville class that already features point guard Quentin Snider, wing Shaqquan Aaron, forward Jaylen Johnson, center Chinanu Onuaku and center Matz Stockman.
