After starring at the NBPA in Richmond late last month, the 6-foot-10, 205-pound Vargas made unofficial visits to Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Louisville and Indiana. Those visits now have Vargas in a position to make an informed decision in the near future.
"They went good for me," Vargas said his recent visits. "I got a chance to see a lot of schools and I'm going to make a decision very soon – probably like in a month."
Who's the decision coming down to?
Vargas only spent one night in Louisville, but got to meet with head coach Rick Pitino, learn some more about the Cardinals program and how he'd fit into Pitino's system.
"It went pretty good," Vargas said of his visit to Louisville. "I liked it a lot. I like the school even more now. Miami is like 30 minutes from where I live and I like them, but I like Louisville, too. I talked with (Coach Pitino) and he told me that he liked me a lot. He's coached Dominican guys before and he said he likes how I play."
Vargas, who averaged about 10 points and 5 rebounds Monday at Reebok U in Philadelphia, said he doesn't plan to take anymore visits before making his decision. Vargas declined to name a favorite in his recruitment when asked to do so.
