Witherspoon's Popularity Booms

Lilburn (GA) Berkmar forward Wynton Witherspoon is a hot name coming out of the July period. Since the AAU Nationals, his phone has been ringing at a pretty good rate.

Wynton Witherspoon strung together some nice outings in July with the Georgia Stars. In turn, his recruitment has picked up quite a bit.

Before the summer, Virginia Tech, Georgia State, Appalachian State and Wofford had made some strides with him. Now, the party has gotten bigger.

Boston College, Virginia Tech, St. Bonaventure, Georgia, Kentucky, Notre Dame, UConn, South Florida, Charlotte and Kansas State have jumped on board. A number of them have already offered.

"I want a place that's the best for me," Witherspoon said. "I don't necessarily have to start but I want an opportunity for my family to see me play; a place that's not too far so my parents can see me play."

Witherspoon said he has definite plans to visit Boston College and Virginia Tech. The visit with the Hokies is set for Nov. 1. "They wanted to set it up earlier but that's one of the dates they said and that was real good."
