Stitt Weighing All Kinds of Decisions

Demontez Stitt made his move in July. Not a single shoe camp invited him to participate but that doesn't mean he's not a good player. In fact, Stitt's strong summer was solid enough to get him onto the Top 25 point guard list.

Maurice Miller and Jeff Teague were a pair of point guards who moved up the list with solid summers. Add Demontez Stitt to that list. The 6-foot-2 Matthews (N.C.) Butler product made it happen with the Charlotte Nets in July.

"This was a great summer," Stitt said. "I was really looking forward to the summer. Last summer I got a couple of letters but this year I was looking forward to proving to these college coaches that I have what it takes to play at their school."

And prove he did. In fact, he's sitting on offers from Charlotte, Clemson, George Mason, Oklahoma and Memphis. Others could be close to offering.

"Georgia Tech has not offered; I talked to Paul Hewitt and a couple of coaches there and I'm not waiting for them but I'm waiting on their response," Stitt said. "I'm wondering what Wake Forest is going to do." Indiana has called recently as well. Virginia Tech has gotten mention in the past as well.

Still will take an unofficial visit to Saturday this weekend to Clemson. After that, his first official visit is tentatively set for Wake Forest, the final weekend of the month. That trip is likely to be deemed official because school will have begun. Charlotte was the first school in the mix and their presence is strong.

"As far as leading would be UNC-Charlotte," Stitt said. "They've been there for a while, about 3 years now. I like UNC-Charlotte a lot and I really like Wake Forest. I like Georgia Tech too."

Georgia Tech has a connection with Stitt. Current wing Anthony Morrow rolled with the Charlotte Nets flew slightly under the radar as a late Top 100 pick and now plays a big role for the Yellow Jackets.

"Basically right now I'm waiting it out, not trying to commit anywhere right now. I want to make my decision towards the November early signing period. I don't want to have coaches run away and I don't want to close my options right now. I'm talking to a lot of people right now and I want to take a few visits. It's going pretty well and I like it."
