Visits on tap for Law

Small forward Vic Law became one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the Midwest during a very impressive junior season.

Four-star small forward Vic Law out of Chicago (Ill.) St. Rita broke out this high school season, and now finds himself as a top 50 prospect. Law recently made one visit to ACC country, and now two more trips are coming up.

At 6-foot-6 and 195 pounds, Law has the size and athleticism to play multiple spots on the floor. The high school season was big for him, and he continued his strong play at the NY2LA Swish N Dish tournament over the weekend.

"It was a great year," Law explained. "Individually it was pretty good, but as a team I didn't like the way it ended with us losing in the regional final. We should have won that game, but all in all the year was good. We have built on our record every year, and I am expecting a state title next year."

He continued, "I improved my shooting, ball handling, and playing more like a guard. I think I have really expanded my game out."

With his recruitment, Law is reeling in numerous major offers.

"I have offers from Florida State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Harvard, VCU, Providence, Loyola, Xavier, Dayton, Northwestern, and Illinois," said Law.

Georgia Tech Head Coach Brian Gregory has deep roots in the city of Chicago and has used that knowledge to get involved with Law's recruitment early on, and recently the talented small forward made a visit to Atlanta.

"I just took a visit to Georgia Tech," noted Law. "I really liked the visit and they showed me a great time. It seems like they have a great coaching staff."

Two other visits are also upcoming for Law. He plans to hit up Harvard and VCU before too long.

"Harvard, they are building a great program and obviously they have a great legacy," said Law. "You saw what they did against New Mexico in the tournament."

He went on, "With VCU, Coach (Shaka) Smart is a great coach. I just love the way they play and they have a great program."

One school that Law hopes to check out is Illinois. The Illini have become increasingly active in this recruitment, and are making Law a priority.

"They really want to build a relationship with me," said Law. "They want all of the Chicago kids to stay home, so I am trying to get to know them and get down there for a visit."

At the moment Law is in no hurry to make a decision and says he is looking for a school that combines excellent basketball with high level academics.
