Stone has list at five, gears up for visits
Diamond Stone is one of 35 top 100 recruits still available in the 2015 recruiting class. While the elite big man out of Milwaukee (Wisc.) Dominican hasn’t made his college choice, he does have his list down to a working number and is gearing up for the all important official visit portion of his recruitment. “I have it at five and I’m going to go from there,” Stone told Scout.com. The five finalists include Connecticut, Duke, Maryland, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin. Stone, who has taken unofficial visits to Connecticut and Wisconsin, said his parents are currently handling his official visit dates. “I have no idea,” he said about visit dates. “My parents know. I think they are set but I don't know.” What will Stone be looking for when he begins taking his visits? “I'm looking for my second home and the place that is right for me,” Stone said. “Great chemistry and coaching.” Stone was busy with in-home visits last week. Connecticut, Maryland, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin went in-home with the five-star recruit. UConn head coach Kevin Ollie was the last of the four schools to conduct an in-home, as he went in on Friday. “Kevin is a great talker,” Stone said. “I just listen to him talk. He was just telling stories. He's excited to get me to campus. Thy just talked about when they would have me and how I would fit in their system.” Which coaches has Stone developed the best relationships with? “I have the best relationship with Bo Ryan and Ollie,” Stone said. “Bo Ryan has been recruiting me since before my freshman year and before I even played high school ball. Then all the other schools came along.” Originally, Stone’s plan was to decide during the early period, but there’s a chance that plan could change. “I think I was going to decide early,” he said. “But there was a crisis in my family so we pushed it back. But I still may decide early.” Stone is currently as the No. 2 center and the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2015 class.
