PG Andre McGee will officially visit U of L

University of Louisville assistant coach Reggie Theus met with talented California point guard Andre McGee Thursday afternoon at Canyon Spring High School. McGee's coach Jeff Stoval talks about the visit and McGee's upcoming visit.

University of Louisville assistant coach Reggie Theus worked his west coast connections Thursday afternoon, meeting with talented 5-foot-11 point guard Andre McGee of Canyon Springs High School in Moreno Valley, California.

McGee, considered the No. 3 point guard and the No. 16 overall prospect in the junior class by TheInsiders.com, is a scoring machine and finished as one of the leading scorers at last summers adidas ABCD camp.

"When you talk about elite point guards in the junior class, McGee is right there at the top," TheInsidersHoops.com's Jeff Goodman said. "You can throw him into a mix with Greg Paulus (Duke), Louis Williams (Georgia) and Monta Ellis (Mississippi State).

So far this spring, several high majors have made the trip to Moreno Valley to meet with McGee. Louisville, along with Arizona State, UNLV, and Washington have been the four programs to send representatives to talk with the talented guard. According to Stoval, the Cardinals, Sun Devils, Runnin' Rebels and Huskies comprise McGee's current top four. North Carolina, Arkansas and Maryland are showing interest.

"But he's still open," Canyon Springs head coach Jeff Stoval.

As for the visit with Theus, Stoval was positive of the meetings tone and McGee's potential fit with Louisville.

"I thought it was a pretty good meeting," Stoval, who sat in on Thursday's meeting, said of Theus' visit. "We think Andre fits in well with how Louisville plays. He likes to get out and run and pressure the ball. And that's what Louisville does."

"Andre shoots it real well, too," Stoval continued. "And he can get in the lane and make things happen. So it was a very positive meeting and a real good visit."

Stoval said that McGee will make an official visit very soon to Louisville. "Probably within the next two weeks," he said.

Stoval said McGee is looking for a good fit both on the court and academically.

"He wants to go to a school with a good business program because he wants to major in finance," Stoval said. "And a school that fits his style on the court."

McGee plays for Elvert Barry's Inland One AAU team.
