Marfo looking to Sept visits

BABC power forward Kevin Marfo had a successful AAU season that resulted in new offers. The Worchester, MA recruit is enjoying the remainder of his summer, with his family, before he begins cutting his list and setting up visits.

Marfo has recently received offers from Fordham, Pittsburgh, and Providence. “I feel that my successful AAU season really paid off and it helped me get noticed.”

Most of the schools that have offered Kevin have stayed in touch with him. “George Washington, St Josephs, Georgia Tech, St Mary’s, Georgetown, Minnesota, Xavier, and Boston College are the schools that have kept in touch with me.”

Kevin has talked with Georgia Tech Coach Brian Gregory. Coach Gregory has invited Kevin to come down for a visit. “He wants to show me the school and talk to me about the system he runs.” Coach Gregory likes Kevin at the four.

Other schools are also looking at Kevin to play the three and five. “I’m intrigued by the combination of basketball and academics that Georgia Tech offers.”

Marfo has yet to set up any visits. “I’d like to spend some time at home and then get with my parents to set up September visits.” Kevin hopes to take all five of his official visits. He may also take some unofficial visits to schools in his area.

It is too early, in Kevin’s mind, to name any favorites. He wants to first take his visits and then talk it over with his family. “I don’t want to make any school think I’m not considering them right now.” Kevin feels he’s still in the formative stage of his recruitment.

A decision in the early signing period is still planned by Marfo. There is a possibility that the visits may push his decision back to the late signing period. “I just want to make the right decision and not hurry into that decision.”

Kevin feels that his recruitment is going the way he wants it to go. “It picked up after my junior year at Worchester Prep and it’s picking up even more now after the AAU season.”
