Abbott Setting Up Visits

Ty Abbott, a senior shooting guard from Arizona, has a wide variety of schools recruiting him. He didn't waste any time after the July evaluation period, as he has already scheduled three official visits...

Ty Abbott, 6-2 SR SG Phoenix (Ariz.) Desert Vista, had a very good showing in July and he has a wide variety of schools expressing interest in him.

We spoke with Abbott over the weekend and asked him about the schools that have called him since the July evaluation period ended.

"Wichita State, New Mexico, Utah, Loyola Marymount, Vanderbilt, St. Mary's, Northern Arizona, Portland and Oregon," said Abbott.

We asked Abbott if he has set up any official visits.

"I'm going to visit Wichita State on August 24th, New Mexico on September 1st and Utah on September 8th," said Abbott.

When questioned about other potential visits, Abbott replied, "I'm not sure on any other visits. I'm talking with Vanderbilt, but we haven't set anything up yet."

Abbott talked a little about the issues that will be important to him when choosing a school.

"My decision is going to be based mainly on team chemistry and how the coaches are with the team," said Abbott.

Abbott told us he had a 3.2 at the end of this year and he will probably sign in November.
