What are your thoughts on Pat Kelsey and Louisville?

“I feel like it’s a great look, he gives the University of Louisville a new face like a fresh start, and Pat Kelsey seems like an amazing coach. I haven’t been around him yet but I’ve spoken to him on the phone and he sounds like he has a good soul and pure intentions. Great coach, a winner, and coaches hard, looking forward to building a relationship with him.”

North Carolina, thoughts?

“I think they’re a great program also, they have an amazing coach as well.”
