Caruso back from A&M

2012 wing Alex Caruso is back from his official visit to Texas A&M. He updates Scout.com on where his recruitment stands now that he's gotten another look at the basketball program in College Station.

The longtime leader in 6-foot-5, 175-pound College Station (Texas) A&M Consolidated 2012 small forward Alex Caruso's recruitment, Texas A&M, received an official visit from the four-star prospect this weekend.

The Aggies helped their position with Caruso during the trip.

"It was a good visit," Caruso said. "I got really good information on both academics and the coaches on how I'd fit in and everything.

"Yesterday I went in and talked to the academic advisor and I didn't know it was as structured as it was. They have everything mapped out; everything I need to do to graduate on time."

Now that Caruso has seen Texas A&M, he doesn't appear anxious to take too many more visits.

"From here I'm going to talk to my parents, see what they thought, then probably take my Colorado visit," he said. "I'm not sure I'm going to take any other visits. It's not a done deal but I'm leaning towards just taking those two."

Caruso made it clear that Texas A&M is his leader, but he still hopes to see CU's program before making a decision.

"I'm leaning towards A&M, but if I don't go there, Colorado is definitely a place I'd want to go next," Caruso said.

It would take a great weekend in Boulder for Texas A&M to surpass Colorado, Caruso said.

"The ‘wow' factor would have to be a 12," he said. "I would really have to be blown out of the water."
