The Louisville Cardinals men’s basketball team added four players to their roster Aug. 25. The four high school players are welcomed to U of L’s roster as non-scholarship walk-ons for the 2020-21 season.

One of the four additions is forward Sam Bearden from Holy Cross High School in Louisville, Ky. Bearden is a 6 foot-5 inch, 190-pound point forward. Bearden was a member of the first team Courier-Journal All-Region selection as a senior at Holy Cross High School.

As a junior, he was part of the Cincinnati Moller High School team that won back-to-back state championships.

Andrew Schultz is another walk-on for the Cardinals this coming season. Schultz is a 6-foot-4 inch, 210-pound stretch forward from Texas. He attended Rockwall High School in Rockwall, Texas.

As a senior at Rockwall High School, he helped his team to a 21-14 record. Schultz played two of his seasons with current U of L forward Samuell Williamson.
