Once the Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy star returns he'll begin looking at his recruitment a little more. A number of schools, including Xavier, Miami, Vanderbilt, Pittsburgh and LSU have set dates to watch him workout in the next two weeks.
"We are going to try and give them a couple of dates to come in," IMG head coach Vince Walden said. "We know he's coming back late, but we want to get these guys in and accommodate them."
"He's taking the SAT on the fourth of October, so he doesn't have any visits set up," Walden said. "We just want to get him back in and get him back in the mix with things."
According to Walden, Natyazhko's recruitment is still holding steady and the talented big man still seems to be wide open.
"Nothing has changed thus far," Walden said. "That's kind of how he wants it and we are honoring that. That's what he really wants. We are going to go every Tuesday and Thursday basically, and I think that will allow guys to come in and see him."
Natyazhko is a four-star recruit and checked in at No. 69 in the post-July rankings.
