Official Visit For Patrick Christopher

Patrick Christopher, one of the top two guards in the west for 2006, has a variety of schools involved in his recruitment. He tells us he just set up an official visit to a Big 12 program...

Patrick Christopher, 6-3 SR SG Compton (Calif.) Dominguez, told us today that he has an official visit scheduled.

"I'm going to Texas the first weekend in September," said Christopher.

We asked Christopher if he has plans for any other visits and he replied, "I'm going to take a trip to Washington, but we haven't set the date yet."

When asked if both programs have offered, Christopher said, "Texas has offered."

Christopher made an early commitment to Cal, but decided to open up his recruitment early this summer. The talented guard is still considering Cal and he'll be in the Bay Area this weekend.

"I'm going up to St. Mary's to see my sister," said Christopher. "So I'll go over to Cal since it is close and stop in there."

When questioned about other schools recruiting him, Christopher said, "I was hearing from Kentucky, but I haven't talked to them lately. I think they're recruiting a bunch of big guys. Virginia, Miami and UNLV have been contacting me."

We asked Christopher if he has a leader at this point.

"No, not really. I opened up my recruitment because I wanted to see what else was out there, so I'm going to let it play out."
