Price has good visit to Louisville

Zach Price, a 6'9 PF from Ohio, enjoyed his second visit to Louisville this weekend. Having visited the UofL campus earlier this summer, Price, the No. 38 ranked prospect in 2011, found out what it's about to play for Louisville during his latest trip.

Zach Price knows exactly what it's like to be coached by Rick Pitino after watching the Louisville coach workout his players this weekend and he definitely enjoyed what he saw.

"It went really good," Price said. "This visit helped me find out more about the program and what the players have to go through on a day to day basis and the whole structure of the program."

Price likes Louisville's program.
Price saw first-hand what it's like to be one of Pitino's players. During his visit, Pitino conducted individual instructions for his players to show prospects like the 6'9, 220-pound Price how he can help each player hone their skill-level.

"I thought that was really special because of all the drills that I've seen the head coach wasn't with the players during their individuals and I thought that was cool," Price said, adding that he believed Pitino's instruction could help him reach his potential.

Price said he enjoyed the atmosphere on Louisville's campus. He attended the Cards football game Saturday against Indiana State and got to experience a game-day atmosphere, including a tailgate bash with Pitino before kickoff.

"I thought the whole atmosphere was warm and welcoming," Price said. "Everywhere we went we were welcome by everyone and they showed us love. I thought everything was cool and it was a really good time."

While on campus Price also got to speak with the Louisville coach about the possibility of playing for the Cardinals.

"It was just like the last visit he explained how I would fit in to the program and talked about the things that I would need to do to be successful in his program," said Price. "How hard I would need to work."

Price was one of four highly ranked juniors visiting Louisville this weekend, joining elite guards Marquis Teague and Wayne Blackshear and power forward Mike Shaw, who Price went up against during pickup action Saturday afternoon.

"I was just trying to do my best and it was all good," Price said. "I mostly matched up with Shaw, the other recruit there."

"We were all around each other and getting to know each other more," Price said. "We talked about how we liked the campus and how we thought we could fit in on campus."

Though he really enjoyed his second trip to Louisville, Price wasn't ready to name a favorite in his recruitment. He said he'd still like to visit a few more schools, including Michigan State and possibly Ohio State before making a commitment.

"Louisville is even with all the college," Price said. "I don't have any favorites now. They're still even with all the schools recruiting me."
