Sylven Landesberg, Scout.com's No. 39 prospect in the Class of 2008, has taken 2 of his 3 official visits, the most recently being St. John's.
"It informed me of a lot of things I didn't know previously (about the campus)," Landesberg said. "Usually when I've been to St. John's I'm just in the gym. It was bigger than I expected it to be. During August, well I've been there like every day to shoot around and play in the gym. I basically knew all there was to know about the team."
St. John's and Virginia had successful visits. "I knew about Virginia," Landesburg said. "I've seen the gym when I went to NBA Camp but I left because I was sick. When I went there I was just amazed by everything I saw."
The Yellow Jackets invited Landesberg to town for a visit this coming weekend. After the trip, he should be able to gather the information, do some comparison shopping and make a decision. "I want to be able to come in and play. They're all going to let me come in and play; if not start big minutes. I want to play and I have to get a good mixture with the guys. I'm comfortable with all the coaches. I'm going on these visits to meet the players and get comfortable with them."
