Louisville Flips a Baseball Recruit From UK


Throughout the summer, Louisville Recruiting has been some of the most focused-on news regarding Louisville Athletics.  Some great recruiting news was heard today that WASN’T on the football or basketball end, however.  It was BASEBALL.  Normally I wouldn’t focus too much on baseball recruiting, but this story was just too great to pass up.

Flash back to last fall.  Devin Hairston, a shortstop from Lexington, KY, and a player for Tates Creek High School, commits to Kentucky.  This is great news for the Wildcats, as Hairston is rated as the state’s sixth-best prospect.  But after that commitment, he began to start re-evaluating his choices.

Flash forward to today.  Hairston made up his mind.  He decided to commit to Louisville, following the beginning of a new contact period, in which Louisville utilized their resources and were able to land him. Great news for the Cards, as Hairston is a great future prospect and should do pretty well.

Here is a link to the interview he did with Cardinal Authority.
