Owensboro star has 'great time' at Louisville

Owensboro High School standout forward Aric Holman made an unofficial visit to the University of Louisville on Saturday for the game against Duke. Cardinal Authority spoke to the 6-foot-9 Holman after his visit and has the reaction.

Owensboro High School standout Aric Holman, who has been a University of Louisville target since last summer, made an unofficial visit to the KFC Yum Center on Saturday.

The 6-foot-9 Holman came to the U of L vs. Duke game with his father and watched the Cardinals. He had already been to a game earlier in the season.

"I didn't get a chance to talk to any of the coaches but I really liked the environment," Holman said. "I had a great time."

Holman is averaging 15.9 points and 10.8 rebounds a game for an Owensboro team that is 15-2 and has won nine consecutive games.

The prospect told Scout.com in November and confirmed again in Saturday night the plan is still to reclassify into the Class of 2016. Holman said he will attend a prep school for a year before picking a college.

Louisville has been one of the schools showing the most interest, but Holman said Cincinnati, Tennessee, Xavier, Western Kentucky, Maryland and Auburn among some others have also been showing interest in his game.

Holman said he hasn't picked a prep school just yet.

Scout.com national analyst Evan Daniels had this evaluation of Holman's game after watching him again in early December:

"Holman is a good athlete that moves up and down the floor with ease," Daniels said in the evaluation of his game. "He has wide shoulders and lengthy arms, but currently lacks strength to be overly physical. He has a lot of potential on offense, as he has good hands, touch and a nice looking shooting stroke."
