2017 four-star Olivier Sarr cuts list to four, starts visit process

Olivier Sarr, a four-star prospect out of France, has narrowed his list of schools to four and is in the midst of visiting all four officially. Sarr started the trip off with California and will also see Wake Forest, Vanderbilt and UCF.

2017 four-star recruit Olivier Sarr made the trip from France to the United States to embark on a two-week, four official visit tour.

Sarr, a 6-foot-11 long, lanky big man out of Paris (France) INSEP,  started off his trip at California, where he officially visited February 5th and 6th.

"That was an interesting visit," Sarr told Scout. "Berkeley is known by its academic level all around the world . It's a good place to live, people are open and kind. Beautiful campus, and I appreciate to be able to talk with the coaching staff and the team."

"That was my first visit and it was interesting to discover an American college campus," he added. "That was also the first time I had watched a NFL Super Bowl game and that was a really good moment."

Sarr also said he enjoyed spending time with California coach Cuonzo Martin. 

"He is a good coach and a good person too," Sarr said. 

Next up on Sarr's visit tour is an official visit to Wake Forest, which starts on Friday and runs through Saturday.

Sarr will then travel south to visit UCF on the 13th and 14th. Sarr closes out his visit spree in Nashville, where he will officially visit Vanderbilt on the 16th and 17th. 

Sarr told Scout that he received interest from 35 Division-I schools and has since narrowed his list of options to the four schools he's visiting on this trip. 

Over the summer, Sarr played for France's in the FIBA u17 World Championships. Sarr averaged 4.4 points and four rebounds a game through seven games in the event.
