"He's going to be going to (Louisville) with his family this weekend," said Reno High coach Kyle Schellin. "It's down to Duke and Louisville."
Before heading back to his native Poland last month, the 6-foot-7, 240-pound Czyz had narrowed his list to three schools – Duke, Florida and Louisville. But the Gators pulled out after they received a commitment from 6-8 Allan Cheney of New London, CT.
Czyz had originally planned to visit Louisville Oct. 15, but apparently decided to move up his visit to the Cardinals after Florida dropped out of the race. With the Duke visit now behind him, Louisville, who hosts Syracuse in football this Saturday, will be Czyz' final official visit before he announces his college decision.
Now, the Blue Devils and Cardinals are the only programs left standing for Czyz, who made an unofficial visit to Louisville in July.
after visiting U of L this weekend.
Czyz likes what Louisville and Rick Pitino can offer.
"The main thing is of course Rick Pitino and his development," Czyz told Scout.com late last month. "I've been told by coaches that I have a lot to improve still and in a couple of years I could be a really good player. I think he could help me develop the most. It's a great league and they're losing 6 guys next year. Louisville is a great program. I love the coach and the facilities that are coming up are going to be great. I really like Louisville."
A native of Poland, Czyz earned a national reputation for himself with his play last spring. An extremely athletic forward, Czyz possesses a 40 inch vertical leap and averaged 19 points and 8 rebounds per game as a junior at Reno High, the same school that Louisville senior center David Padgett attended.
"Czyz turned the spotlight on himself with a strong spring," said Dave Telep, Scout.com National Recruiting Director. "His summer was up and down but still strong enough to have the big dogs of college basketball barking at his door once the smoke cleared (in) July."
