Pace was one of two official visitors at Louisville this weekend.
"I feel like anywhere I go to school I can do my part," Pace said. "I just felt at home at Louisville and I liked the city. I liked everything about Louisville and I felt ready to make my decision. And my dad liked it so I committed."
Pace held several offers and chose Louisville over Ole Miss, Kansas, Memphis, Akron, Hawaii and Minnesota. "South Florida was about to offer too," Pace said. "I'm done with my visits. I'm not taking anymore visits."
Pace is set to graduate from Butte in December and he'll have three years to play two at Louisville.
"I bring intensity and a lot of energy," Pace said. "I think I can be a leader right away. I'm ready for it and I'm pretty excited about it."
