Louisville head coach Rick Pitino visited Monday with Las Vegas Bishop Gorman 2015 big men Stephen Zimmerman and Chase Jeter (pictured at left).
“It was the first we met him, so he just told us general things about the school and how he runs practices, coaches, etc.,” Kim Jeter, Chase’s mother, told SNY.tv. “Great visit!”
Kim said there was a “possibility” that the 6-foot-10 Chase could visit Louisville. He takes an unofficial to Arizona this weekend, and an official to Duke March 8 for the North Carolina game, the same weekend uncommitted 2014 big man Myles Turner visits.
Pitino was visiting the 7-foot Zimmerman for the third time.
Lori Zimmerman said her son may take an unofficial to Louisville “this summer.”
As for what Pitino said, she told SNY.tv: “He talked about Stephen’s season and what he feels will help develop Stephen for the next level.”
