“It was a great trip,” Rowan said. “I really enjoyed it. The city is great. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see them play, but I watched a couple of practices and I worked out. The campus is really nice. Madison Square Gardens is one of the best places to play. It’s the greatest arena in the world.” Rowan’s father – Ron – played at St. John’s and played one season with new St. John’s coach Chris Mullin. Maverick said he’s just now getting to know him. “I’ve just recently met Chris Mullin,” he said. “He’s a great guy and I play the same position he did. If I go there he could help me improve myself to help me become a pro. Then Slice, I’ve known him for a couple years. But I haven’t really been in contact until he came to St. John’s.” The next step in Rowan’s recruiting process is to take two more visits. “I got to take my last two visits to Wisconsin and N.C. State and hopefully I make my decision sometime in August after I finish my courses,” Rowan said. Rowan has previously taken an official visit to Louisville. North Carolina, UCLA and others have also been involved in his recruitment. But Rowan tells Scout he’s down to N.C. State, St. John’s and Wisconsin. “It’s pretty much down to those three,” Rowan said. Rowan spoke to Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan shortly after he announced that he would step down after this coming season. “He said what he said and it makes it seem like he’s retiring, but he could have one year left,” he said. Rowan is currently regarded as a four-star prospect in the 2015 recruiting class.
