One thing that really stood out to Fultz was the closeness of the team, and how they treated him. “I am going to be honest,” said Williams. “Kenny (Johnson) and (Rick) Pitino didn’t have to do much work. It was the players that did all the recruiting, and that is something that Markelle liked a lot.” The next step for Fultz is the Big Strick Classic in New York. From there a pair of Pac 12 schools will get official visits. “On Monday Markelle will go to Arizona,” said Williams. “After that he will go to Washington for another official visit.” Williams stressed that no commitment will happen on a visit, and that Fultz and his mother are dedicated to going through the recruiting process and seeing the options that they have before making a decision.
First visit a success for Markelle Fultz
