Westbrook Taking Visits

Russell Westbrook, the best unsigned guard in the West Coast class of 2006, has some ACC and WCC visits lined up...

Russell Westbrook, 6-3 SR SG/PG Lawndale (Calif.) Leuzinger, had a terrific senior season and he's now in the process of taking official visits.

In the fall, Westbrook took visits to Creighton and Kent State. Now that his senior season has ended, Westbrook is busy taking his remaining visits.

"I just got back from Miami," said Westbrook. "I leave for Wake Forest tomorrow and then I go to San Diego on April 5th."

We asked Westbrook how his visit to Miami went.

"It was cool," said Westbook. "I liked the area -- it reminded me a little of Southern California -- and they had a nice campus. The players and coaches were good guys."

We asked Westbrook if leaving the west for college would be an issue for him.

"No, my Mom is fine with it and my Dad is alright with it too," said Westbrook.

UCLA is another school that is in the mix for Westbrook and he has already been to the Westwood campus several times for games this year.
