“The hiring process so far has been pretty good,” Dembele said. “I made two official visits to DePaul and Pittsburgh. I just got back from Chicago and then played two games.”

Dembele spoke about his relationship with DePaul and Pittsburgh with 247Sports.

DePaul: It was a pretty good visit. I had the opportunity to watch them practice and I love DePaul. I really like how cool they are, how they communicate and what vibes they have. It’s a small campus and everything is close, so you don’t have to go outside the campus.”

Pittsburgh: “It was a pretty good visit and it was my first official visit. I came from Spain and didn’t even know anything about going to college, so it was a great experience for me.” I have a great relationship with the coach, and he came to watch my games. I really like the vibes.”

At the moment, Dembele is in no hurry to make decisions, but he knows what he wants from the program.

“I’m taking my time right now, so it could be November or December,” he said.

“I just want a good relationship with the coaches and staff. I can’t go to a school where I don’t know any of the staff. I don’t care how big the school is, I just want a good relationship with the coach.”
