Fraser returns from Louisville

After a brief trip to Louisville this past weekend, Jason Fraser still favors Villanova.

The Amityville (N.Y.) big man finished taking the SAT on Saturday around noon and then hopped on a private jet, which took him to Louisville later that night.

"I didn't get a chance to see that much of the campus, but I saw what I wanted to see," Fraser said. "I got a good feel for the players and the coaches."

Comparisons between the Louisville and UNC campuses?

"The campus at Louisville was nice, but I don't think you can compare any campus to Carolina," Fraser said.

Fraser's uncle has been the biggest supporter of Pitino and the Cardinals program. While Louisville isn't expected to make too much noise this year in Pitino's first at the helm, Fraser was surprised about the talent on the roster.

"Everyone tried to make it out like they didn't have much, but they have some good players," added Fraser. "Even Pitino told me they weren't going to be great, but I think they're going to be pretty good."

Fraser hung out primarily with freshman point guard Carlos Hurt and Reece Gaines, and was impressed with the Louisville boss.

"It was cool meeting him (Pitino) and getting a chance to see him away from ball," said Fraser. "He's a cool guy. Very classy."

Fraser maintains that he has yet to make a decision and that although Villanova leads, all four schools – ‘Nova, St. John's, UNC and Louisville have a chance at securing his services.

"Villanova's leading, but not by much," Fraser said. "It's coming down to the wire now."

Fraser said he plans on taking his official visit to St. John's this weekend.
