"I wasn't at home when he called but my dad talked to him," Bivin said. "He told him that I had nothing to worry about. So that is good news."
A three-star prospect and the 11th ranked center in the nation, Bivin said it was a relief to know he's still part of the Cards' plans.
"I was worried, there's always that doubt," Bivin said. "I'm glad he kept me. He's a really good coach. I'm looking forward to talking to him in person."
Bivin said he'll make an official to UofL next month.
"He said I'm going to go on my official visit sometime in January," Bivin said. "I'm probably going to call him sometime this week and get a date set up."
