Harvey down to three, UofL visit next

6'5 shooting guard Bryan Harvey will make an official visit to the University of Louisville next weekend and says he's narrowed his choices down to three heading to the "Ville."

With Ricky Torres making a decision earlier this week to attend St. John's, the Louisville Cardinals are now focusing their attention on a pair of California prospects. Marcus Johnson, who visited Louisville last week and Bryan Harvey who will be visiting U of L on the 24th.

Harvey has always mentioned a short list of schools through out his recruitment, but only one school has consistently been on his list. In July, Harvey listed Louisville as well as Syracuse and UConn, but now the 6-foot-5 athletic guard has altered his list and says his top 3 schools are Louisville, Arizona State and Kansas.

When asked if he could name a leader Harvey responded, "Well, not really, I haven't taken any visits yet. I don't have all the necessary information to name a leader."

The 96th ranked player by TheInsiders.com will get a chance to see Louisville up close and personal when he makes an official visit next weekend. Harvey said he is excited to hear about Louisville, from a player's perspective.

"I'm looking forward to meeting the guys and asking them about the program and how they like it and getting some feedback from them," Harvey said.

Harvey has a strong interest in Louisville for a few reasons but mainly because of the coach that roams the sidelines.

"I like the fact that I could be playing for Rick Pitino, and I've been told that not just Louisville per say but the whole state of Kentucky basketball is great up there." said Harvey when asked why he likes Louisville.

Arizona State coaches were in Compton, California for an in home visit with Harvey on the 17th and he said it was a great opportunity for him to learn more about ASU's program.

"I had an in-home visit (with Arizona State), it went well, my parents got a chance to talk to coach and learn about their program so it was nice."

Although there are many factors that will play a role in his recruitment Harvey indicated that playing time is a big factor. <> "It's a fifty-fifty split between playing time, and how I like my visit, and if I wasn't abasketball player how I would like living up there"

Harvey said that he has no table for him to make a commitment.
