The Cardinals add the No. 1 junior college transfer in the country.
Fresh off a Final Four run, the Louisville Cardinals added some more talent to their roster on Monday, announcing that junior college point guard Chris Jones has committed to the school.
Jones, who stands at 5-'0, was ranked the No. 1 junior college transfer, according to ESPN. He was also considering Kansas, Florida State, Baylor and Oklahoma State.
In Jones, Louisville will get a player that has history of winning.
"He's a fierce competitor, won a state championship in high school, played for a national championship last year in juco," NW Florida coach Steve Forbes said. "Now he has the opportunity to compete for a national championship at the next level and play for a Hall of Fame coach."
Jones didn't waste too much time deciding, as he visited Louisville a day before committing.
At North Florida last season, he averaged 18.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.
