Shaqquan Aaron, a Top 100 prospect in the class of 2014, announced his commitment to Louisville on Saturday night.

The 6-foot-8 small forward is a native of the Los Angeles area but plays his high school ball for Rainier Beach in Seattle. Aaron is nationally ranked by 24/7 Sports (15th), Rivals.com (27th), Scout.com (34th) and ESPN (51st). He was rated even higher earlier in his high school career but was ineligible for his sophomore season due to transfer rules.

Aaron’s new school, Rainier Beach, also produced former U of L star Terrence Williams.

Aaron chose Louisville over UCLA, Washington and Arizona. He joins Ballard point guard Quentin Snider — also a top-50 recruit — in Louisville’s recruiting class of 2014.

Some reaction from the recruiting world …

Rick Pitino has done a great job with players/kids like Shaqquan Aaron. Tons of upside, really like the pickup for Louisville.

Make no mistake, only a few nationally have more upside in ’14 than WF Shaqquan Aaron. Louisville got an elite wing talent with his pledge!



Aaron is a big wing that can really score. Shoots the ball at a high level.
