Ardrey Kell's Justus Pickett will wait, visit more schools

Ardrey Kell running back Justus Pickett, the Observer's No. 19 recruit in North Carolina, will not sign today, Knights coach Adam Hastings said.

Pickett visited Arkansas last week and will visit Maryland this weekend.

"He's still trying to figure it out," Hastings said. "We have until April 2 but I think this time next week he'll have an idea of where he's at."

Hastings said Pickett will choose between Maryland, Arkansas, Ball State and West Virginia.

A first-team All Charlotte Observer pick, Pickett rushed for 2,429 yards and 31 touchdowns last season. That was the third-most yards ever in one season by a Mecklenburg County back and the ninth-most touchdowns. Pickett was his conference (Southwestern 4A) offensive player of the year and made several all-state teams.

Come to Arkansas and play in the best football conference in college football, the SEC. You will thrive in Bobby Petrino's system and will likely have a chance to play in one or more BCS games while your here.

You're better off in the spread offense at WVU.

I hope he doesn't wait too long. Some athletes become so wishy-washy that they lose the interest of any of the schools they are being considered by. That's not good! Whatever school he decides on... he should decide quickly.
