Sam Cassell, Jr., son of retired NBA guard and Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Sam, Sr., will make an official visit to the University of Louisville next week.

Could Sam Cassell, Jr. possibly become a Louisville Cardinal?

Cassell told Jim Ganzer of BrewCityBall.com he has visited two universities with two more coming up on his agenda, including Louisville. 

"I am still open, I don't have a leader at this point. I have visited Missouri and Marquette, I visit UConn this weekend and will visit Louisville next week. I don't have a deadline, when I feel it, when I know where I want to go I will make the decision. I do want to commit by October though, I want to sign during the early period. I want to make the right decision." 

The Cardinals lost two commitments from point guard aspirants Quentin Snider and JaQuan Lyle, so they are looking to solidify their backcourt. Cassell is one of their primary candidates. 

Meanwhile, Ganzer reports Cassell enjoyed his Marquette visit and finds the idea of playing for Golden Eagles head coach Buzz Williams.

"I had a really good visit to Marquette, I really enjoyed it. I played with the team and I think that went very well. I felt good playing with them.

"Coach Chew has been recruiting me, and he's been great. Coach Buzz is, well, he's just Coach Buzz. He's really good. I want to play for a coach that will work me very hard and get the best out of me. That is what every player should want, and Buzz is that kind of coach."  

The 6'3" Cassell was originally part of the 2012 recruiting class and previously commited to the Maryland Terrapins, but was deemed ineligible because of academic reasons.

More specifically, his academic ineligibility stemmed from the NCAA invalidating six courses he took at Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts, paving the way for his enrollment at Chipola Junior College in Florida. 

His father, now an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers and three-time NBA champion, called the NCAA "neighborhood bullies" and said,"The NCAA couldn't go after Notre Dame Prep. My son didn't do nothing wrong."

Nonetheless, the younger Cassell says his dad has been instrumental in his journey towards selecting a Division I college.

"My dad has been a big help, but he doesn't tell me what to do. He said this is my life, it is my decision, and that this is the most important decision that I will ever make, so he wants me to take my time and make the right decision."  

Best of luck to Sam Cassell, Jr. in this all-important life decision.
