The recruitment of John Wall, the top high school basketball point guard recruit in the country, took another twist Thursday when Wall planned an unofficial visit to N.C. Central.
Wall has known and worked with new Eagles coach LeVelle Moton for years. Wall plans to visit the Durham campus on Friday.
"I want to find out what a historically black school has to offer," Wall said Thursday night. "This is a visit to find out some things."
Wall had planned to trim his list of eight schools to three or four by Friday, but, "truthfully, it looks like it is going to be Monday now," Wall said.
Wall currently has N.C. State, Baylor, Kentucky, Miami, Duke, Kansas, Memphis and Florida on his list. He said there are no leaders, not any group of leaders.
He said internet reports that he had cut his list to Kentucky, Miami, Duke and Florida were erroneous.
"I have not told anyone a group of leaders," he said. "In my mind, the schools are even."
