In the wake of Louisville's connection to a federal investigation involving fraud and corruption, 2018 basketball recruits Anfernee Simons and Courtney Ramey have decommitted from the school.
Simons announced Wednesday he was decommitting from Louisville on Twitter:
Ramey's father, Terrell Ramey, told Evan Daniels of Scout.com his son was going to reopen his recruiting.
"We aren't excited about it," he said, "but it's something we have to do."
Their decisions to decommit from Louisville come one day after interim president Gregory Postel said the school was named in a complaint from the U.S. Department of Justice involving 10 coaches from different universities allegedly bribing recruits toward certain agents and financial advisors.
Per Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich has also been placed on administrative leave with the school having 30 days before it can officially fire him.
Simons committed to Louisville in Nov. 2016 after taking an unofficial visit to the school. Ramey verbally committed to the Cardinals in February, telling Daniels he felt like he "had the best relationship with them."
