Anas Osama Mahmoud, one of the top remaining basketball prospects in the 2014 class, committed to Louisville on Monday, according to Scout.com.
UK assistant coach Orlando Antigua visited Mahmoud earlier this season at his high school in Florida, but the 7-foot-2 recruit did not have a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.
Mahmoud did have offers from Florida, Marquette, Minnesota, Cincinnati, N.C. State, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Texas A&M, among others. ESPN ranks him as a four-star recruit and the No. 69 overall prospect in the Class of 2014. 247Sports considers him the No. 81 overall player.
Louisville now has six players in what is shaping up to be one of the best recruiting classes in the country. The other five recruits — point guard Quentin Snider, small forward Shaqquan Aaron, power forward Jaylen Johnson and centers Matz Stockman and Chinanu Onuaku — all signed in November.
