Vargas Likes Panthers, Too

If somebody wants to get in touch with Eloy Vargas, they better make an appointment far in advance.

A 6-foot-10 forward from Plantation, Fla., Eloy Vargas has a busy summer planned with the NBA Camp in Richmond as well as visits to the University of Pittsburgh and Louisville this month.

"He's looking forward to going to Pitt and Louisville and hopes to play in the Big East,'' Vargas' AAU coach Kenny Gillion said. "He has other schools interested in him, but those two are at the top.''

Along with Pitt and Louisville, Ohio State, Miami and Clemson contact Vargas the most. A reason the Cardinals have been mentioned as a slight favorite is that they have had some recent success with Dominican players, most recently Edgar Sosa, and Louisville coach Rick Pitino's contacts in the NBA, according to Gillion.

So, while he likes Louisville, the Cardinals aren't necessarily a favorite any more than Pitt. Vargas is interested in both schools.
