Ashanti Cook Has Plenty of Options

Ashanti Cook, a quick and talented point guard from Los Angeles Westchester, has visits and in-homes scheduled with a number of schools. We talked with him recently about his list...

Ashanti Cook, 6-1 PG Los Angeles Westchester, told us yesterday that he has six schools currently on his list, with in-homes and/or official visits scheduled with each school.

Ashanti's in-home schedule is as follows: Nevada (yesterday), Oregon (9-12), San Diego St. (9-13) and Kansas St. (9-17). Ashanti has already had New Mexico for an in-home on Sunday and Minnesota came to his home Monday.

We asked Ashanti about the New Mexico and Minnesota in-homes and he described both of them as being informative. "New Mexico was a little longer, but they both told me most of the same things. They talked about academics, the different majors they offer, tutorial services for athletes, the fan support for their programs and where I'd fit in on their teams...both of them were good."

Ashanti has four official visits scheduled so far. He will be in Minnesota the weekend of Sept. 14, at Oregon on Sept. 28, at Kansas St. on Oct. 5th and he'll go to New Mexico on October 12th.

We asked Ashanti if he saw himself making a commitment anytime soon and he said, "No, I'm not close yet. I don't have a leader. I'm going to take these trips before I make a decision."
