As the early signing period approaches and school has officially started across the country, players are beginning to take official visits and narrow their lists. One of the most coveted guards in the midwest is Brookfield (WI) Central senior Riley LaChance.
Last month LaChance narrowed his list to eight schools including Baylor, Butler, Creighton, Davidson, Gonzaga, Indiana, Vanderbilt, and Xavier. He later eliminated Gonzaga from his list after the Bulldogs received a commitment from Josh Perkins.
Now the talented Wisconsin guard has begun scheduling official visits. LaChance took one official visit to Creighton last month and has scheduled three more for this fall. He will visit Vanderbilt (Sept 6), Xavier (Sept 13), and Baylor (Sept 20).
One of the schools that didn't receive an official visit was Butler, where LaChance visited in late August. He enjoyed the short, but productive unofficial visit to Indianapolis.
"I was only there for like 5 hours," LaChance said. "I toured campus, shot in Hinkle, met with an academic coordinator, met with the AD (Barry Collier), and talked with the players."
While some have speculated that Butler was eliminated from his list because they didn't receive an official visit, LaChance was quick to deny those rumors.
"No not at all," LaChance said. "They are still on my list. They are close to home so I didn't feel it was necessary to take an official."
The 3-star prospect will look to make his decision shortly after taking his official visits and sign during the early signing period in November.
Butler currently has one commitment in the class of 2014 in forward Tyler Wideman (IN) and is currently look for potentially 3-4 more recruits to round out its class.
