Millard plays well at Charlie Weber

6-foot-8 University of Louisville basketball prospect Chad Millard had an impressive weekend at the Charlie Weber Invitational and has an upcoming visit in the works.

When Inside The Ville spoke to Chad Millard last week, we interupted his daily shooting regimen.

Fortunately, that interuption didn't effect Millard's performance over the weekend at the Charlie Weber Invitational.

Millard, who averaged over 20 points during the AAU event over the weekend, was especially effective in Blessed IJN's toward the end of the tournament, scoring 51 points in the final two contests.

"He scored 26 and 25 in our last two games," Blessed IJN coach Eric Vaughn said. "He shot well and played well the entire weekend."

Millard is working on setting up a visit to Louisville and it's likely to occur sometime in early May.

"He'll probably make a visit sometime in May," Vaughn said. "Maybe as early as the next couple of weeks."

The Cardinals have offered Millard and Vaughn indicated that gesture carrys considerable weight in this recruitment.

"It's exciting for him to have an offer from Rick Pitino," Vaughn said. "Though I think it's wise that he visit the other schools on his list."

Kansas, N.C. State and Providence appear to be the other main players in Millard's recruitment and both the Jayhawks and Wolfpack are trying to get a spring time visit arranged also.

As for the Friars, who have also offered a scholarship, Vaughn said, "They really want him bad."
