"I'm going to Michigan next Friday and Saturday - the 2nd and 3rd - for an official," McGary said. "The 5th I'm going to Kentucky for an unofficial, on the 6th and 7th I'm going to North Carolina for an official and then the 8th, 9th and 10th I'm going up to Duke for an official."

McGary recently took an unofficial visit to Florida, which he said was a positive experience.

"It was good," McGary said. "I liked the campus a lot; it's a beautiful campus. The coach is pretty cool. They were great greeting me to their school. Hopefully I'll take an official visit there this fall." asked McGary to break down the other schools on his list.

Michigan: "I like the offense they play; they run it through the big men a lot. I feel if I went there I could help them get back on top. (Glenn Robinson) is one of my best friends. I talk to him a couple times a week; actually I just talked to him today."

Kentucky: "I know that (John) Calipari gets people ready for the NBA and that's one of the main reasons I would go there. I know they've got some really good recruits and if I go there I'd want to win a national championship so that's a possibility."

North Carolina: "I talk to Marcus Paige and J.P. Tokoto a lot about it and I can definitely see the possibility of hooking up with them. Marcus playing the one, J.P. the three and me the four. I just think Roy Williams is a pretty good coach and they're up-tempo, which fits my game."

Duke: "I like Coach K's credentials and him as a coach. He runs an NBA offense and gets his players ready for the NBA."

Maryland: "I took an unofficial there in June and I'm going to take an official there sometime this fall hopefully."
