Pollard plans more visits

Southern Phenoms coach Jeff Andrews updates Scout.com on the latest in Devonta Pollard's recruitment. The five-star prospect is set to take a few more visits.

Devonta Pollard has a lot going on right now.

Not only does the 6-foot-7 forward have a collegiate decision to make, but also the five-star prospect is in the midst of a playoff run with DeKalb (Miss.) Kemper County.

Pollard, who is averaging 23.8 points and 16 rebounds a contest, helped Kemper County knock off Choctaw Central this past Friday and has his team rolling through District play.

"They are in the playoffs and they are in pretty good shape," Southern Phenoms coach Jeff Andrews told Scout.com. "It's win or go home."

The McDonald's All-American is also mixing in college visits when he has an opportunity. He recently visited a pair of Big 12 schools.

"His last visit was Missouri and he's already visited with Texas and he took an official visit there," Andrews said.

"He's planning later on this month to go to Georgetown," he added. "I believe it's the last weekend of the month."

Pollard is also considering Kentucky, Mississippi State and Alabama.

"Last we thought he's still planning on going to Kentucky and to do an official visit with Alabama," Andrews said. "He's definitely going to visit with Alabama and probably Kentucky. He's going to go to Mississippi State and Alabama for sure."

"We are going to keep an open mind and visit the campuses and see which one feels like home," he added.

Although an exact timetable hasn't been set, according to Andrews Pollard is looking to make his decision around the signing period.

"We want to do it the spring," Andrews said. "I think most likely the early signing period, but I could see it going farther."

A five-star prospect, Pollard is ranked No. 25 overall in the 2012 recruiting class.
