Alex Officer Focusing on Two

The top guard in New York State, Alex Officer is ready to start focusing on recruiting. Having already scheduled one official visit, he discusses which two schools are at the top of his list.

Alex Officer is the top guard in New York State. It is the time of the year when undecided recruits start scheduling their official visits. For Officer, he already has one date set.

"I've scheduled one official visit so far," Officer said. "I go down to Pittsburgh on December 7th."

That is one of two official visits he plans on taking, at least for now. The other is Louisville. Pitt and Louisville are standing out to him right now.

"They are my top schools," Officer explained. "Just those two right now. I will take an official to both. I like the coaches and the people there. They are good people and seem genuine."

One school that had long been considered a favorite to land the 3-star guard is Syracuse, especially considering their proximity to Officer. However, he seems to have cooled on the Orange.

"I don't know if I'm taking one there," Officer declared. "I might take one but I'm not totally on board yet. I just don't know if that's where I want to go to school."

Officer says no timetable for his decision has been set.
