Goldwire To Start Visiting

If you like under the radar guys, then Leemire Goldwire is your man. The Palm Beach Dwyer senior might not be a household name but he's a high-major prospect.

One lucky team is going to sign themselves a Florida guard with talent. Leemire Goldwire, the leader of last year's 35-3 Dwyer team is currently hearing from Charlottte, South Florida and Georgia with VCU and James Madison trying to remain in the hunt.

Actually, he's set a visit to Charlotte for next weekend and South Florida the following weekend. Georgia could host him sometime in November. Bulldogs head coach Dennis Felton spent a considerable amount of time with him last week trying to position his team for a run at him. Alabama even came in to check on him.

A month ago, Goldwire told us that he was intent on signing late but that's not the case, or at least it doesn't seem to be anymore. "The kid wants to play at the highest level and play in the NCAA Tournament and have a chance," assistant coach Billy Palagonia said.

Goldwire ran with the South Florida Heat in July. It was at the AAU Nationals when he began to announce his presence. "He really struggled early in the summer. He was with a lot of guys he didn't know. When he got to Orlando he was all systems go. He changed his shot in early July out in Vegas but he got comfortable in Orlando."
