ESPN 100 prospects Anfernee Simons and Courtney Ramey both decommitted Joe Morgan Youth Jersey from Louisville on Wednesday, less than an hour after the school announced head coach Rick Pitino was placed on administrative leave. "Due to the recent events that have taken place, my family and I have decided it's in my best interest to de-commit from the University of Louisville," Simons said in a statement on Twitter. "I will be reopening my recruitment. This was a very tough decision to make and I am deeply saddened by this. I appreciate all of the support from the Louisville fans." Ramey's father, Terrell, confirmed to ESPN that his son had also reopened his recruitment. "Yes he has, unfortunately," Ramey said Louisville placed Pitino on unpaid administrative leave on Wednesday, after the program was linked to an FBI investigation into fraud and corruption in basketball recruiting. Louisville was not explicitly named in the FBI documents, but the school confirmed it was part of the investigation. The allegations include requesting that Adidas funnel $100,000 to the family of a prospect so he would sign with Louisville. The prospect is believed to be Brian Bowen, who committed to the Cardinals in early June. Simons, a 6-foot-4 guard from IMG Academy (Florida), is ranked No. 8 in the ESPN 100 for 2018. He originally committed to Louisville last fall. He was one of the most impressive players on the Under Armour Association circuit this spring and summer, averaging 20.4 points and 5.5 rebounds for Team Breakdown. Ramey, a 6-foot point guard from Webster Groves High School (Missouri), is No. 49 in the ESPN 100. He committed to the Cardinals in February. Ramey averaged 15.0 points and 4.4 rebounds for Ramey Jets United on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit. Louisville now has zero commitments in the 2018 class, but in-state guard David Johnson is still committed for 2019LOS ANGELES -- Josh Rosen quietly reconnected this summer with his most notable skeptic: Trent Dilfer, the theatrically opinionated former NFL quarterback who in recent years has reinvented himself as a youth quarterback guru. Their reconciliation came during the Elite 11 competition for the nation's top high school quarterbacks, three years after their first encounter there when Dilfer fumed about Rosen's resistance to his training methods. Dilfer's frustration with the aggressively inquisitive Rosen would become the top storyline of the Elite 11 documentary broadcast months later. "Josh, you were the most talked about person this week by far," Dilfer said in the penultimate scene of the show. "Everybody keeps coming back [to], 'Does he think he knows more than us?' " Rosen, then generally considered the nation's top quarterback in the Class of 2015, finished last among the 11 quarterbacks chosen in the finaleAt the invitation of the Elite 11 organizers, Rosen returned in June as one of the college counselors for the high-profile camp. Dilfer was impressed Rosen accepted the offer, a hint at a thaw in their relationship. By the time the camp was over, Dilfer had become as much a fan of Rosen the man as he was the quarterback. "I have nothing but good things to say about him," Dilfer said. "I've grown to appreciate how he's aware of his impact, his words, his influence, and he's aware of his talent and how good he can be." Rosen's growth between those Elite 11s -- from local phenom to star quarterback at UCLA -- was the theme of his address to the teen prodigies in attendance, a tale that included the highs and the lows of the past three years. He was, to Dilfer and the camp organizers, a model alumnus. Yet as Rosen made clear that summer day and in a handful of public comments since, he aspires to be an atypical Golden Boy, less a bland company man and more an unapologetic advocate. He created headlines most recently, in an interview last month with Bleacher Report, saying, "football and school don't go together" and "at some point, universities have to do more to prepare players for university life and help them succeed beyond football." In a time of increasing social unrest and political dissension, Rosen has purposefully positioned himself to be a different sort of leading man. "It's kind of the position that you are in as an athlete," Rosen said, "and you would hope everyone in the world would stick up for each other." For all of the promise he shows on the football field (he's projected as one of the top prospects in whichever NFL draft that he enters, 2018 or 2019), many who are close to him -- and some who aren't -- predict his biggest impact probably will come away from it. "He wants Jonathan Broxton Jersey to be great," Dilfer said, "and wants to leverage that influence to do bigger things
