Dominique Hawkins has full scholarship offers from Western Kentucky University and Morehead State University.
The 6-foot-1 guard from Madison Central High School in Richmond, Ky., is considered one of the top Class of 2013 prospects in the Bluegrass State and is a leading contender for the state's Mr. basketball honor.
Hawkins has some other schools – Tennessee and Alabama – who have inquired. Now, he said he has another option to think about.
A recent phone conversation with University of Louisville coach Rick Pitino landed Hawkins an opportunity to walk-on with the Cardinals. He said Pitino told him the opportunity for a scholarship could be there eventually.
"It's pretty crazy to think about," Hawkins said. "It's something I have to look at. I would rather a full scholarship right away, but I have to look at it.
"To think I could go to Louisville and play there, I'm just excited they're even talking to me. So it's something I have to see about."
Hawkins said at this point, Western Kentucky and Morehead are "definitely my top two" but noted there's a chance he could make a visit to U of L this Saturday when the Cardinals play host to Seton Hall.
"If we're not playing, I am going to try and come up," he said. "I think I will know more once I am there and talk to the coaches."
Hawkins averages 20.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists a game for the Indians (23-5). He's hitting 39 percent from three-point range.
U of L has signed four players, including three guards, in the Class of 2013. North Oldham sharpshooter David Levitch is also set to walk-on at U of L next season.
