Terry Rozier committed to Rick Pitino in September without visiting campus. Last weekend, the 6'1 point guard from Cleveland finally made his official visit to Louisville.

"I love it, everything about it, it was nice," Rozier said. "I've never seen nothing like it. It's great to be part of it. It makes me want to work harder and get closer to my dream. I was real happy to see everything. The arena, the practice gym, the weight room were nice, the dorms, I loved the basketball dorms."

The highlight of the visit for Rozier was getting to know his future teammates.

"Mainly just kicking with the players the whole time," Rozier said. "I was separated from my coach and parents and I just had fun with the players. I felt like I was playing for the team. I felt like I was part of the team."

Rozier's cousin, freshman Zach Price, showed Rozier around campus.

"He made me feel real comfortable as soon as I got there," Rozier said. "Zach showed me a good time, just all those guys. They were real nice."

Rozier, one of the Top 25 point guards in the Class of 2012, watched Louisville scrimmage during his visit and spoke with Pitino about what he needs to do to prepare for his freshman season.

"We talked mainly about me and my schools and the steps I've got to take to get there," Rozier said. "It was a nice talk. He's a nice man. He's like a father-figure. He told me he likes point guards that push the ball and get up the floor. So he told me to make sure I'm in great shape when I come in."

Rozier will sign a National Letter of Intent to play for Louisville next week. He also plans to attend a few games at the KFC Yum! Center this season.

"I'm not sure when I'm coming down but I really want to catch a couple games," Rozier said. "I really want to see how the fans pack in. I've been to the football game and they said they really come out and show support for the basketball games. I really want to…get a feel for that."
