The University of Louisville’s 2011 basketball recruiting class is like an accordion, expanding and contracting with each new summer scouting/recruiting analysis.

Enter now Deuce Bello and friends, who have recruiting junkies, as well as the professional analysts, speculating that U of L may indeed be on the verge of a breakthrough class.

They are dissecting every move this 6-foot-3, 175-pound forward from High Point, N.C. makes, on and off the court.

Facebook. Twitter. Water Cooler?  Yes.

For good reason. Dunking seems to come as naturally as breathing. No running starts necessary. Blocks shots with ease, shoots with confidence. And lots of good friends that excel in basketball.

Notably, Bello is close friends with super stars Tony Wroten and Quincy Miller. Equally important, all of them have good relationships with Tim Fuller, the new U of L assistant.

Here’s new video of Bello:
