Top Junior Visits Big East Program

Corey Fisher was on another unofficial visit Tuesday afternoon. One of the top players in the Northeast made a Big East pilgrimage.

Corey Fisher, Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Pat's big time guard from the junior class, met with the St. John's Red Storm Tuesday afternoon.

"It went great," Fisher said. "I went to the school, went to the volleyball game and everything. They've got a new practice facility. It's an arena, it's that nice. It's everything. They got the movie theater in there, the media room and everything."

Fisher also has recently been to Connecticut. "I'm trying to take a lot more (unofficials)," Fisher said. "I was busy the whole summer so I couldn't take them."

Fisher, ranked No. 32 in the most recent 2007 rankings, has plenty of suitors. When you can score the basketball like he can, teams tend to make you a priority early. In addition to St. John's and UConn, Memphis (offer), Penn State (offer), Stanford, DePaul (offer), Virginia Tech (offer), Clemson (offer) and Villanova (offer) have shown interest prior to the beginning of his junior season.

Regardless of how many unofficial visits Fisher takes, he's not going to pop until after his junior season. "I'm going to probably wait until the end of junior year," Fisher said. "I was going to commit this year but we waited. My father said to commit this year so I can go through my senior year and not have to worry about it."

So, what's important to the NYC native? You know, what's the big picture? "It's important that I want to win and want to go somewhere to that a coach can get me better. I want to know where I can fit in and play right away. I want to win the championship."
