Darian Norris, 5-11 SR PG Las Vegas (Nev.) Mojave, is a true point with a nice feel for the position.
I spoke with Norris recently and he gave me an update on his recruitment.
"The main schools are South Carolina State, UC Santa Barbara, Fresno State, Boise State and Wright State," said Norris. "But Uconn just called a couple weeks ago and started recruiting me."
Norris said he has a couple official visits planned.
"I'm going to UCSB on the 26th of this month," said Norris. "And I'm scheduled to go to South Carolina State in October, but I don't know the date."
I asked Norris if he plans on visiting the other schools.
"Yes, I'll visit all of them – I just have to set up the times," said Norris.
I asked Norris what he's looking for in a school.
"I want to see the point guard situation and see if it's somewhere that I can play right away," said Norris. "Also, I want to see the surrounding area – my parents want to make sure I'm someplace that's safe. Also, the style of play is important too."
Norris said he plans on making a decision sometime this fall.
