Ballard point guard Quentin Snider entered the early signing period committed to Illinois, but instead signed with the University of Louisville on Friday morning.
Snider originally committed to hometown Louisville early in his high school career. He had a change of heart and decommitted from the Cardinals in July. Two months later, he was committed to Illinois.
Now, he’s officially a Cardinal.
The signing was confirmed by Snider, his father and his AAU team.

Snider becomes the fourth signee in Rick Pitino’s 2014 class, joining forwards Shaqquan Aaron and Jaylen Johnson, as well as center Chinanu Onuaku.
All four players in Louisville’s class are considered four-star recruits by Scout.com, which ranks Snider as the No. 32 overall prospect in the class.
Snider returns to a Ballard team that went to the state championship game last season, losing to Madison Central in the finals in Rupp Arena. The Bruins will likely be the pre-season favorites to win the title in 2014.
