David McCormack dominates at adidas and talks recent Louisville and Kentucky visits

FORT WORTH, Tex - Four-star big man David McCormack was a dominant force at the adidas Gauntlet and talked about his recent unofficial visits to Kentucky and Louisville.

True centers are getting harder and harder to find, but David McCormack is definitely one of them. Playing with Team Loaded-Virginia, McCormack has been a dominant force on the low block and recently he made a pair of high profile unofficial visits.

"I think my game has really advanced since I got to Oak Hill," said McCormack of his development. "I dropped about 25 or 30 pounds and I’m moving much better.  Also I think I have that extra dog in me, and I am not going to let anybody out work me."


Just before the April evaluation period, McCormack made visits to Louisville and Kentucky.

About the trip to Louisville, McCormack said, "It was a great campus with a great environment, and I also really liked the coaches. The coaches tell me they are looking for the next Montrezl Harrell, and they think they can help advance my game and be that type of player."

He went on about Louisville, "That is what they think I could do in they future. They say I could become a skilled a big man who plays in the high and low post."

When it comes to the visit to Kentucky, he responded, "I haven’t received an offer from Kentucky yet. They basically told me to keep working and that I could have something to look forward to."

He continued, "They told me Kentucky isn’t for everybody, and that it is different. They just told me that if I was to come there I’d have to be ready to play and work hard."

While Kentucky and Louisville were the schools to get visits recently, several also stopped by to see him at Oak Hill.

"Recently I talked to Xavier with Coach (Chris) Mack and Coach (Mike) Pegues, Texas A&M, Maryland with Coach (Dustin) Clark, Coach (Mike) Morrell from Texas, and Virginia Tech."

At the moment McCormack is in no hurry to make a decision, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking at style of play," said McCormack. "Do they go inside-out and throw it to the big man. How many touches does their big man get, and are they known for developing bigs."
