Coach Pitino met with the media this afternoon to speak about his 2013 recruiting class. Here is a brief recap, along with a video, courtesy of Jody Demling of CardinalAuthority.com.
–Coach Pitino said it was critical in 2013 to bring in a class that could score and shoot.
–David Levitch, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from North Oldham High School outside of Louisville will join the 2013 class as a walk-on. Pitino says he expects Levitch to play a similar role as Tim Henderson.

–The staff won’t pursue anymore guards other than one in the 2014 class. Coach Pitino says the backcourt is now solidified.
