In his first game on Thursday, Aaron had 29 points and followed that up with another strong performance in the evening. The Seattle Rainier Beach standout also had a big LeBron James Skills Academy last weekend in Las Vegas.
Scout.com analyst Rob Harrington said he "has made an impressive transformation in recent months."
Alex Schwartz sat down for a Q&A with Aaron on Thursday, following his 29-point effort, for Cardinal Authority:
Cardinal Authority: Talk about the future at Louisville with Quentin Snider and JaQuan Lyle after being with them at LeBron.
Aaron: "Of course, excited for the future, just gelling with each other, see how each other's doing, how we're playing and everything. Just getting to know each other."
Cardinal Authority: What's your relationship with Lyle and Snider?
Aaron:"Good, me and Quentin always talk, I always check on him, see how he's playing, how is he doing. Right now JaQuan and him are playing on the same team, so I always check on them, see on Twitter how they're doing, things like that."
Cardinal Authority: What was your reaction when Lyles committed?
Aaron: "Even better, we're going to be even better, so I was happy."
Cardinal Authority: Are you guys out there recruiting?
Aaron: "I don't want say [who], there's guys in particular, but it's not just a couple guys. I'm looking at all these bigs, there's a lot of great bigs out here, so we're just trying to get a couple bigs with us."
Cardinal Authority: Anyone in particular?
Aaron: "There's a lot of guys, let's just say that."
Cardinal Authority: Have you talked with Trey Lyles and gotten a feel for him and where he might be headed?
Aaron: "I haven't talked to Trey. Trey's been gone with Canada for a while, so I haven't seen Trey in a while, he's been off the scene. Probably when I go play at Global Games I'm going to see him so I'll talk to him there."
Cardinal Authority: So you have talked with the staff about whom they are recruiting:
Aaron: "Actually, me, [Rick] Pitino, coach [Wyking] Jones . . . we all talk with each other, [they] ask who I would want to play with us, things like that. We talk it up, see who would fit perfectly with and sometimes I mention a big, like, ‘What about this guy?' And they're like, ‘Yeah, I'll check him out,' things like that. So we all talk to each other, [give] input [to] each other.
Cardinal Authority: Are you trying to visit U of L during the season?
Aaron: "Probably, probably see a big game."
Cardinal Authority: What are the coaches telling you to work on?
Aaron: "Just get stronger. I've been in the weight room, gained some pounds. That's pretty much it, so I can get my body ready for the next level."
Cardinal Authority: What's your current height and weight:
Aaron: "I'm 6'8 and I don't know how much I weight exactly. I'm gaining more pounds, so I haven't really weighed myself in a while."
Cardinal Authority: What's the strongest part of your game?
Aaron: "Just, there's a lot. I'm a team player, get everybody involved. I can score when you need, you just saw [that]. I'm locking up on defense, everything. I'm just trying to do everything."
Cardinal Authority: What are your goals for the summer?
Aaron: "Get better. Get better and have fun. And don't take plays off, keep playing hard every play.
Cardinal Authority: Where else this summer?
Aaron: "Global Games and probably adidas Nations. I have to look at my schedule, it's pretty busy."
Cardinal Authority: What's Reebok camp like?
Aaron:"It's pretty fun, playing games. I'm kind of tired, but I'm not going to let that effect my game. I've been traveling, I haven't been home in months. It's great, [I am] playing basketball, having fun."
Cardinal Authority: Anything else you want to add?
Aaron: "Shout out to my family out there, shout out to Cardinals fans out there. Shout out to Louisville out there."
