Here we go again. More basketball recruiting suspense.

Tony Wroten, Jr., one of the top recruits in the 2011 class, has indicated he will visit the University of Louisville campus this weekend. Fresh off a Rick Pitino visit to the family’s home Tuesday in the Seattle area.

However, the last time a U of L entertained a recruit, there was a resurgence of interest in the individual from John Calipari at Kentucky. It’s the way Calipari operates, especially when Louisville is involved. He will say something, do something, make waves before or after the visit. Almost predictable.

Other courtesans include UConn, Villanova, Washington and possibly Baylor. They will not go quietly either.

Wroten, a 6-foot-4 point guard, is close friends with Quincy Miller, a 6-foot-9 recruit ranked among the leading power forwards in the country. His circle of friends also includes Peyton Siva, who will be Louisville’s point guard this season, and a guy named Terrence Williams.

The family has indicated the player will announce his college choice Oct. 8 at Garfield High in Seattle. Here’s a video:

    1. We’ve read enough about Tony Wroten, thank you. Not that we’re likely to hear much more about the University of Washington in basketball from here on out unless the President does something to clear up the NCAA recruiting mess. He should have plenty of incentive.
