Weber Sets Visit to Arkansas

Arkansas will get a look before Albert Weber makes his final decision. The combo guard will be in the Ozarks this weekend.

Albert Weber, a 6-3, 185-pound combo guard and one of the best shooters in the class of 2004, said Wednesday night that he will visit the University of Arkansas this weekend.

"I'm going to be up there this weekend and I am looking forward to visiting Arkansas," Weber said. "The recruiting class they have coming in has really opened my eyes and I might like to be a part of it. It is a school I really want to take a good look at before making a decision."

Weber, who averaged 21 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals last season last season for Mount Zion Christian Academy, originally committed to Alabama this summer.

He stayed committed until last week when he decided to re-open his recruiting and took an official trip to UConn.

"It was really nice," Weber said. "I got to watch them practice, hang around the players and get a good look at the school."

Alabama is still in the picture as well according to Weber, who is ranked as the 51st best player in the country by Dave Telep of

"I am not counting them out," Weber said. "Alabama is still an option."

Weber said he does not have plans to visit any other schools and will make a very quick decision upon returning home from Arkansas.

"I will make my decision and announce it on Monday and then sign on Wednesday, Nov. 12," Weber said of the first day of the week-long early signing period. "It will be over with quick."
