    The college basketball heavyweights are all making their way through the Ranney School (N.J.) for Class of 2019 stars Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis.

    A week ago, Kentucky’s John Calipari visited the school and officially offered both players after he has been recruiting them for some time.

    On Wednesday, Louisville coach Rick Pitino came through and had a private meeting with both Antoine and Lewis.

    “Pitino emphasized his daily individual workouts and he loves being on the floor with his players,” Team Rio director Brian Klatsky said.

    “He made a very compelling pitch to make them reach their fullest potential as players.”

    Lewis and Antoine both visited Kentucky and Louisville around the Kentucky Derby. They are actively talking about attending the same school, which would make for one special package.

    On Tuesday, North Carolina’s Roy Williams and Kansas’ Norm Roberts are expected in to Ranney.

    Meantime, the duo took an unofficial to Villanova on Friday with their teammates, and are expected to go back Saturday for Midnight Madness.
