Pitino, has been in Miami this week checking out 2011 point guard Angel Rodriguez.
Miami Tropics Head Coach Art Alvarez said, Pitino was in Miami this week to check out Angel Rodriguez, the point guard prospect who will visit K-State for Friday’s Madness in Manhattan event.
“Rick Pitino was in the building last night,” Alvarez said. “He came with with his staff to watch Angel lift wights and play a little. I spent some time with Rick, and he seems to think Angel is one of the top point guards in the country.”
Rodriguez will visit Louisville later this month, Alvarez said, followed by a visit to NC State. Right now, Rodriguez doesn’t plan to make a commitment until he sees all three schools.
“He’ll make sure that he goes to Louisville and NC State,” Alvarez said. “I think after he visits those three schools, he’ll make a decision.”
Rodriguez wanted to make his three visits before the start of the early signing period in November, though there’s still a chance he’ll wait for the spring signing period.
Rivals.com rates Rodriguez as a three-star prospect in the 2011 class.
