Report: ’24 Target for Louisville Jayden Quaintance Commits to Arizona State Quaintance, a McDonald’s All-American and a consensus five-star talent, was previously signed by Kentucky.
LOUISVILLE, KY: The men’s basketball team at Louisville has lost one of its main targets in recent years.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowskl, Jayden Quaintance, a five-star talent in the Class of 2024 who became a target for new Cardinals head coach Pat Kelsey after decommitting from Kentucky, is signing with Arizona State.

During the early signing period in November of last year, Word of God Academy, located in Raleigh, North Carolina, signed an initial commitment to play for Kentucky. As John Calipari, the head coach of the Wildcats, left for Arkansas earlier this month, Quaintance requested to be released from his National Letter of Intent.

Louisville jumped right back into the mix after he was freed. Quaintance finally made an official visit to the Cardinals on April 19, one day before the Jordan Classic.

After Quaintance canceled a visit to Arkansas and postponed a visit to Memphis, things started trending in Louisville’s favor, with the Cardinals even getting a pair of crystal ball projections. But Arizona State was able to get themselves into the picture, eventually securing a visit for themselves.

Losing out on the 6-foot-9, 230-pound big man certainly stings. He is regarded as a five-star prospect in all four major recruiting services, and ranks as the No. 7 player in the 2024 cycle according to the 247Sports Composite. He was originally a member of the Class of 2025 before reclassifying.
