Booker High School
CUTigers.com caught up with Chris' father after the family returned home from the official visit.
"On the way back he said he would make a decision by Friday. He had a good visit," said Mr. Zellern. "He needs to go through the process of elimination. He wants to look at the pro's and con's of each school. He will sleep on it tonight. He doesn't have a clue as to his favorite at this point."
Mr. Zellner had previously expressed concerns about the interest level of the Hurricanes but the visit seemed to put those concerns to rest.
"Yeah they seem interested. We asked the questions about what happened. For a while it seemed like he was an after thought. There was some indication that maybe his coaches gave Hurricanes the impression that Chris was not interested. I told the coaches that they should have come to me. I told them right out that you guys weren't interested. I told them we took the visit because Chris wanted to take the visit."
Miami head coach Larry Coker appeared to win over the father during the visit. "I told Coach Coker that you guys have revised my opinion of you. We met with Coach Coker this morning. They definitely want Chris to come if he is so inclined. The said they definitely have a scholarship for him."
Expect coaches from Clemson, Ohio State and Miami to put on a full court press for the Florida standout this week as he closed on his decision. "He's down to three. He really doesn't have a favorite."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from Florida, right up through signing day 2004.
