Terry Rozier had a dream school. Sunday, he made a commitment to them.
A six-foot point guard from Shaker Heights (Ohio) High, Rozier committed to Rick Pitino's Louisville Cardinals.
"I went with my heart and my guts," Rozier told Rivals.com. "Both of them had good signs and Louisville was my dream school and I wanted to be coached by a hall of famer."
Playing in the spring and summer with All-Ohio, Rozier was one of the grassroots circuit's breakout players. It was his play during July that caught Louisville's eye.
"Right after LeBron James they started recruiting me," said Rozier. "They were really aggressive with me and I was my dream school so I was really happy that they were recruiting me.
"Then down at Peach Jam I did good and they decided to offer."
Capable of filling up the stat sheet in several ways, Rozier is a steady hand at the point who can create for himself and others off the dribble. He's also a dangerous shooter and is looking to be himself when he gets to college.
"I can help out pretty well just going there and being myself," said Rozier. "I don't need to change anything about me. I just want to try and be a leader. If Peyton Siva stays I'll learn as much as I can from him so I can step in and take over after he leaves."
Currently ranked No. 112 nationally in the 2012 Rivals150, Rozier is Louisville's first commitment from that class and he's looking forward to realizing his dream of playing for Rick Pitino.
"I chose him because he can develop me into a good college point guard," said Rozier. "I'm just going to try and take it all in."
