Visits going well for Ahmad

Both official visits have gone well for Esa Ahmad.

Four-star forward Esa Ahmad continues on his visit tour of his finalists. The first trip was to Maryland, and the most recent was to West Virginia. With more coming up, Ahmad is enjoying his tour of campuses.

This past weekend was a good one for Ahmad as he spent time in Morgantown. For the Shaker Heights (Ohio) product it was a very productive trip.

“The visit went really well,” said Esa’s father, Ibby Ahmad. “It was great to get there and spend time on the campus, and got to see all of the facilities. Esa got to meet the players, we got to hang out with Bobby Huggins at his house, and Esa’s mother had some misconceptions about the area, but she really liked it and got to see what the area is really like. Also just getting info from a Hall of Fame coach was great.”

Ibby Ahmad continued about the visit, “Bobby Huggins was in depth about how he was going to use Esa. He said there were times he could see Esa being used as a one, two, or a three. He loves Esa’s versatility and his passing ability more than anything, so he showed us how things would work if Esa went to West Virginia.”

Up next for Ahmad will be Ohio State, and the Buckeyes are going to be in for a face-to-face visit before he makes the trip back down to Columbus.

“Ohio State is going to come in tomorrow and we are going to meet with them at Esa’s school, and then we will visit them this weekend,” noted Ahmad.

In terms of what will happen after the Ohio State visit, nothing is quite set in stone.

“We haven’t re-scheduled Wisconsin yet, and have nothing set with Oregon yet, but we will try to do that this week when all of the coaches come in and see us,” said Ahmad.

While the plan remains to take all of the visits, Ahmad did admit that isn’t something that is set in stone.

“It is possible to make a decision before all of the officials,” said Ahmad. “All of them are going to meet with Esa this week, so if we know where we want to go, a decision is possible before all five official visits happen.”

Ahmad is rated currently viewed as the No. 48 player in the 2015 class.
