LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville men’s basketball coach Kenny Payne added more backcourt punch Monday when Ty-Laur Johnson, a former Memphis commit and a four-star point guard from the Bronx, announced via Instagram that he will play for the Cardinals next season.
Johnson is the top-rated player in New York by 247Sports, which ranks him the No. 77 overall prospect and No. 12 point guard in the 2023 class.
A slashing scorer who is elusive in the open court and a flashy ballhandler, the 6-foot, 190-pound Johnson played for Our Savior Lutheran High School in the Bronx.
He joins a remade roster in Louisville. Payne’s second Louisville roster will include nine new additions, including highly touted guards Skyy Clark and Trentyn Flowers, combo guard Tre White of USC, four-star freshman Kaleb Glenn and five-star freshman center Dennis Evans.
