Pat Kelsey has 20 new potential Louisville basketball recruits after contact day

Pat Kelsey has been busy in his first 100 days as head coach, looking not only at the Cardinals’ current situation, but also at the future of the program.

Kelsey and assistant coaches Ronnie Hamilton and Thomas Carr traveled to Orlando earlier this week for the NBA Players Association’s Top 100 camp to evaluate talent and set new goals for the team in 2026.

On Saturday, June 15, coaches from across the country were able to contact 2026 recruits during what was called a “contact day.”

Louisville’s staff got to work early, extending offers to 20 recruits in the 2026 class.

Some featured recruits include:

Deron Rippey Jr.: Four-star recruit from Blairstown, New Jersey. The guard has offers from top programs in the country such as LSU, Maryland and Louisville. Rippey has over 20 scholarship offers, including Louisville.

Ikenna Alozie: A top-10 prospect in the Class of 2026, she also has plenty of offers from top programs across the country. The shooter received a scholarship offer from Louisville after performing at the camp. Alozie currently has 20 scholarship offers from schools like Utah, BYU, LSU and now Louisville.

Cole Cloer: The forward from Greensboro, North Carolina, impressed Kelsey’s staff on Saturday and also received an offer from neighboring Ohio State over the weekend. Cloer played for Team CP3 16 during the Nike EYBL spring competition, averaging 16.8 points and 4.5 rebounds for the team.

By comparison, Louisville currently offers 18 scholarships to players in the 2025 class, with each of them ranked in the top 100 nationally in their class.
