Aaron told the Seattle Times that the main reason he selected Louisville was due to the way coach Rick Pitino pushes his players.
“The first thing I asked the players was, ‘How is coach P? Is Coach P a hard coach?’” Aaron said. “And they were like, ‘If you don’t want to be coached, this isn’t the college you want to go to.’ Coach (Mike) Bethea, my high school coach, really coaches me, and I fit right in. So I was thinking, if I want a good coach to get ready for the next level, I want to play for a coach that is going to be hard on me. I like how coach P is going to push me every time.”
Aaron also received offers from UCLA, Syracuse, UNLV, Arizona and Washington, among others.
Aaron possesses elite athleticism and break-away speed in the open court. He has the ability to score as well as just about anyone and is skilled passer as well as a deft ball-handler.
