Later this summer, Jeff Capel’s program will get a visit from one of the top sophomore guards in the country.
2020 point guard Ace Baldwin (Baltimore, Maryland) will make an unofficial visit to Pitt on August 4.
Baldwin (6-1, 155) also plans to make summer stops to Kentucky, Seton Hall, Virginia and Kansas.
After making these plans last night, Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Baldwin briefly and asked him about Pitt.
“I’m only a sophomore so the Pitt coaches can’t talk to me but they’ve spoken to my AAU coaches. I’m allowed to actually start talking to them on June 15,” said Baldwin. “I know that Pitt is in the ACC and I’d like to start developing a relationship with them and see what the campus is like.”
“Coach Capel gives me a lot of interest in Pitt because I know he’s been an assistant coach at Duke for a long time and has been under Coach K. He learned a lot from him and could carry it over to Pitt.”
Rivals rates Baldwin as one of the Top 100 sophomores in the country and from his own description, sounds like a traditional point guard.
“I believe my strengths on the court are I play good defense, I’m a floor general, I get my teammates involved in the game and when I have to, I can score,” said Baldwin.
Baldwin is looking forward to next week when he’s permitted to actually talk to some of the top head coaches in the country and to get his recruitment started.
“I’m very excited because all of this is a dream come true and I believe this will all be a great experience for me.”
