Two visits upcoming for Agau

Three-star prospect Akoy Agau could emerge as one of the most sought after recruits during the month of July.

One of the players likely to draw the biggest crowd of coaches in the 2013 class during July is Akoy Agau. The Omaha (Neb.) Central product is a legitimate interior prospect who could see his offer list absolutely explode.

At around 6-foot-9 and 225 pounds, Agau has the size and strength to play down low with a solid skill level. That combination is at a premium in the 2013 class, and it means Agau is seeing his stock soar.

"The spring I think was alright," said Agau. "I played in the first two live periods pretty well, and then playing in the EYBL was great competition. I was fighting through injuries and I still am right now, but it was fun playing against good competition."

With his performance during April as well as two successful weekends on the EYBL circuit, Agau now has numerous schools hot on his trail.

"I am hearing from Nebraska, Creighton, Georgetown, Connecticut, Tennessee, USC, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and there have been others as well," said Agau.

As would be expected, the in-state Cornhuskers are working hard to make Agau feel like a priority recruit.

"They have a new coach who is trying to build the program up," said Agau of Nebraska. "They have been recruiting me real hard, I have an offer, and I am looking at them closely."

While in-state programs such as Nebraska and Creighton continue to work hard, West Virginia and Georgetown are in line for visits shortly.

When it comes to the Hoyas, Agau likes the Princeton style of offense that they employ.

"They are really interested and are recruiting me hard," said Agau of Georgetown. "I am going to make a visit there after the NBA Top 100 Camp. I think I would be a great fit in their offense. I think my game would really shine in their offense."

After checking out Georgetown, Agau plans to make the trip to Morgantown to check out West Virginia and Head Coach Bob Huggins.

"I have watched West Virginia over the years and I think they have a good program and a great coach in Bob Huggins," said Agau. "I am going to visit them after the NBA Camp as well and I am looking forward to it."

For now Agau says he is in no hurry to make a decision, but he does know what factors will come in to play when that time does come.

"I am big on education, so what the school has to offer on that side is important," said Agau. "I will look to see if they offer a lot of majors and programs I am interested in. On the basketball side I want to have a good relationship with the coaches and get a good feel for the environment of the school."

Agau is currently listed as a three-star prospect, but is someone definitely under consideration for a bump into the top 100.
