"They flew in today," Van Treese said. "Coach Pitino and Coach Pitino Jr. flew in to watch me play open gym. We sat down and talked and they were just telling me how they likdd me and how I'd fit in their system and how they'd make me a better."
"They said they way I play I'll fit in their system," he continued. "It's real close to home and it's a good situation for my family. He offered me and I called him today and told him that I wanted to play for him."
"They have been recruiting me for a while," Van Treese said. "The thing with Coach Pitino doesn't pressure players. After I first visited there they all thought that I was going to go to IU and that's what I thought, but I mean I think this is going to work out for the best.
