Elonu To Take 3rd Visit This Weekend

Chinemelu Elonu is coming down the home stretch. He's got a visit on tap for this weekend and could take as many as two more official trips.

Flying a little bit under the radar is Houston (Tex.) Alief-Elsik power forward Chinemelu Elonu. The 6-foot-8 Elonu has been to Massachusetts and New Mexico State thus far this year.

His next trip is Texas A&M and that visit takes place this coming weekend. Elonu said that he could take his final two visits but has not set dates for either. Houston and Miami are in the mix to receive visits.

So far, New Mexico State has been the most impressive trip he's been on. "I just really got along with the players really well," Elonu said. "I did at UMass too but at New Mexico State I did more. The chance for me to go there and start is real good."

Elonu said that he prefers to attend college away from home. "It doesn't bother me but I would prefer to go away. I want to go just where I can get to know some more people and live on my own and look after myself."

"I'm just looking for me to be able to get along with the coaches and the players and see the way they run their practices. I want to see how they do the individuals and stuff like."
