Richard Pitino posted his second official blog of the summer this afternoon as he returned from a recruiting trip over the weekend.

In this edition, he discusses his recruiting philosophy for July -- stating that while some coaches believe the evaluation period isn't critical for securing potential recruits, he feels it is a "necessary step."

Pitino also briefly discusses what's going on with the team, which has been doing individual instruction for the last two weeks. He also notes the non-conference schedule will come out Tuesday.
