Bryan Harvey Makes Choice

Bryan Harvey watched his summer teammate, Marcus Johnson, eliminated one of the schools on his list when Johnson committed to UConn last week. Harvey decided to make his decision this past weekend and he'll be seeing his former teammate across the sidelines in college.

Rick Pitino and assistant coach Reggie Theus went west again – with the latest addition being Bryan Harvey.

The 6-5 senior swingman at Compton Dominguez (Calif.) became the latest Californian to commit to Louisville, joining forward Amir Johnson and point guard Andre McGee. The Cardinals will also bring in Seattle native Terrence Williams.

``I can't really say it was one thing," Harvey said. "It was a lot of different things. Talking to Coach Pitino and him telling me where I'd fit in, talking to the guys and seeing how much they love it."

Harvey, who also considered Arizona State and Kansas, made the decision while on a visit this past weekend.

``I had a great time playing pickup with the guys and going to eat for breakfast at Coach Pitino's house," Harvey added. ``I really liked both Coach Theus and Coach Pitino."

Harvey is a big-time scorer who gives Louisville a much-needed perimeter shooter.

``He'll have a great career at Louisville," Southern California All-Stars boss Pat Barrett confirmed. "I think he's one of the top 25 players in the country. He can really shoot the ball and when he gets the three-ball going, he can carry a team."
