Tuesday night, Rick Pitino went to watch the Top 50 2012 Huntington Prep and came away impressed enough to offer a scholarship - as did Florida coach Billy Donovan. Webster-Chan, a 6-foot-7 forward, had 22 points, 11 rebounds, three assists in an 81-53 win over Our Savior New American (NY).
Now, the question: Is Webster-Chan ready to make a decision?
Webster-Chan visited Louisville earlier this month for the Cardinals win over South Alabama, then brought his mother back for another visit a week later to see campus and meet with Louisville coaches. According to sources, Louisville is the team to beat for Webster-Chan.
Rick Pitino seems to be on a recruiting roll recently. Louisville signed a consensus Top 10 2011 recruiting class last month, then landed a verbal commitment last weekend from Rodney Purvis, the nation's top 2012 point guard.
Webster-Chan, if he committed to Louisville, would give Pitino's program another four-star, Top 50 prospect in the 2012 recruiting class. Webster-Chan is rated the No. 45 overall prospect nationally, and the ninth-best small forward.
Originally from Canada, Webster-Chan is an athletic wing player with an outstanding skill set.
"The thing about Webster-Chan is his skill set," said Scout.com recruiting director Evan Daniels. "He has terrific ball skills and his jump shot is improving. He's versatile and can play a couple different positions."
