McGee, who qualified academically for college after taking the SAT as a freshman, received a visit from U of L assistant Reggie Theus on Thursday and told Inside The Ville that the Cardinals, along with Arizona State and UNLV comprise his current top three.
"It went real well," McGee said of his visit from Theus.
McGee is intriqued by Louisville's tradition and the type of program U of L head coach Rick Pitino is currently building.
"Just the prestige of the school," McGee explained of his fondness for Louisville. "I have a lot of respect for Coach Pitino and Coach Theus and the type of program they have at Louisville. They have a solid base of fans and its basketball country. That's important to me."
"Louisville's a great academic school," McGee continued. "And Coach Pitino seems like a really good guy."
According to McGee, Louisville has extended a schlarship offer and he said he'll visit U of L in the near future, "I'll probably visit in the middle of May, but I'm definitely going to visit Louisville for sure."
Asked whether or not he might decide early, McGee said, "It's possible I might make an early decision."
From Moreno Valley, California, essentially a suburb of Los Angeles, McGee says distance from home won't be an obstacle should Louisville prove the best fit for him.
"For me it's not a big thing," McGee said of the distance from LA to Louisville. "I'm looking for the best situation for me."
On his visit to U of L, McGee said he just wants to see if he fits in and find out what it's like to play hoops at the Ville.
"I just want to see what it's all about at Louisville," Mcgee explained. "I just want to find out what's it's like to play for Coach Pitino and ask the players how they feel about playing there."
