Ware had a in home visit from coach Pitino on Sunday. He made an official visit to UCF as well this weekend meeting with head coach Donnie Jones. Ware told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he chose UCF over all other school, including Louisville because of  the opportunity to play immediately and his connection with the team’s coaches and current players were major factors into his decision.

Ware will join another former Louisville target in big man Michael Chandler at UCF next season.
