According to the Las Cruces-Sun News, Scout.com's No. 17 prospect in America is visiting campus this weekend. Prior to the newspaper spotting Pope on campus and gaining an exclusive interview, not a whisper had been heard regarding the Aggies and Pope.
The 6-foot-8 Aliquippa product gave a few brief comments to a reporter while on campus. "I like the coaching staff here at NMSU," the one-time Pittsburgh commit told the newspaper.
Pope has been to Maryland and we think -- though its not been confirmed -- that he'll trip to Memphis next weekend. There is the possibility that another program is also in line for a visit.
